An exemplary icon of the 20th Century, Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis added her own sense of style to her favorite sunglass design…to such an extent the look is now known as the Jackie O…The once and future Camelot of sunglasses.

Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis is wearing the P711 style
created by Traction, a French company that began producing eyewear in 1927. She first purchased the sunglass in 1967 at Pierre Marly Opticians in Paris. In a recent interview, Mr. Marly says he believes she bought three of the sunglasses on her initial visit: one in black and two  in tortoise tones
