  • Celebrity Shades Spotlight: Kate Middleton and her Ray-Ban Wayfarers

    f91a76e58145d9d78cb7b2f4f1ab85f4Ever since she started dating Prince William in 2003, Kate Middleton has been in the fashion spotlight. Her impact has been dubbed “The Kate Middleton Effect,” pretty much saying that whatever she wears women in the U.S and U.K buy it in droves. With such a strong influence over the market, designers from all over the world would do just about anything to get Kate Middleton to wear a piece with their name on it. One of the more recent photographs of her show her rocking an American classic, the Ray-Ban Wayfarers in the tortoise colored frame. Middleton was seen wearing these frames on more than one occasion and they clearly seem to be one of her favorites. The Wayfarers are one of the most popular sunglasses of all time, and are the embodiment of youth and rock and roll culture. That just goes to show that it doesn’t matter if your British Royalty or an American college student, these Ray-Ban’s transcend all social classes.

  • Celebrity Shades Spotlight: Brad Pitt

    Seems like Bradgelina is over, although we thought it would be a perfect time to see how Brad Pitt’s sunglass style has changed over the years. In the 90’s Pitt was known to rock the small sport style sunglasses (like the ones he wore in Fight Club). This was definitely keeping with the trends, as these minimalist style sunglasses were all the rage in the 90’s. However, his more recent films and red carpet appearances have shown him to wear more aviator style glasses. Whether it is Ray-Ban 3025’s or Gucci 2281/s, he seems pretty dedicated to that style of frame and the teardrop lens shape. Then again, aviators have had a serious resurgence in popularity the last 10 years, so it makes sense that he is sticking with the trends. My guess would be that in another 6 years he’ll have a different go-to style, and I'm sure it will be very fashionable as well.

  • Movie Sunglasses Spotlight: War Dogs

    wd1One of the summers big hits, the action/comedy movie “War Dogs”, depicts the true story of Efraim Diveroli and David Packouz as they get a multi-million-dollar government contract to sell arms overseas. Diveroli is portrayed by comedian Jonah Hill, while Miles Teller plays Packouz and it is shaping up to be a hit with a cast like that. While I have yet to see the movie, I immediately took an interest in the sunglasses that Hill wears in the trailer/ poster of the film.

    At first glance they are clearly aviators, with their unmistakable teardrop lens. I originally thought that they were Carrera Speedway’s, as they have the thick frame aviator look that is reminiscent of 1980’s sunglass style (think Scarface sunglasses). However, looking into it a little bit more it became clear they were Gucci’s by the telltale G on the side of the arms.

    They appear to be the Gucci 1018/S model with the Havana color frame. Gucci has been modernizing the aviator design with several models like 1627/S (Kayne West’s partial to these) and the 1076/N/S. They are made for the most part of high quality plastics to cut down weight and are highly sought after by celebrities looking to be a part of the Gucci Designer culture.

    Gucci seemed to have done something right putting these glasses in the movie, as sales for the 1018/S model have increased since its release. It’s pretty amazing how easily a movie can have an impact with sales of products if its done correctly. As of right now these glasses are on Backorder until September 20th, so if you want a little bit of international arms dealer style you’re going to have to wait!

  • Best Old School Hip-Hop Sunglasses

    The new popular Netflix show “The Get Down,” has renewed public interest in the early years of Hip-Hop. In honor of this, let’s take a look at some of the most popular sunglasses from the beginnings of this movement.

    Cazal Sunglasses

    Cazal 163-3 retails at around $500 The Cazal 163-3 retails at around $500!

    These were by far the most prestigious sunglasses of the era. Only the top dogs wore these, because they carried with them a hefty price tag. Custom made in Germany, these sunglasses were simply a must have if you were a "somebody" during that time. They are still available today with prices from $300- $1000

    Carrera 5530/S

    Carrera 5530/S 99mm 0KHX JJ Carrera 5530/S 99mm 0KHX JJ

    If you’re looking for that old school hip hop style, but don’t want to shell out $700 for a new pair of Cazal’s, these Carrera’s are worth a look. They have the “shield” style, which resembled ski goggles, and were popular with celebrities like Michael Jackson, and members of Run DMC. These are an excellent, less expensive alternative to the very expensive Cazal’s and certainly are a must have for hip hop fans. More recently, James Franco can be seen wearing these glasses in the film Spring Breakers.

    Versace VE4299

    These Versace’s are similar to what many rappers in the 90’s wore. They are based on the aviator design, except they are pitched inward slightly. While Versace wasn’t producing this frame during that era, the design itself clearly has a lot of character and worth reproducing for anyone who wants to have a bit of the 90’s with them every. Versace is one of the foremost fashion brands in the world, being held in very high regard with everyone from modern rappers, to movie stars.

    Michael Kors MK1003

    These Michael Kors are trying to capture the flashy and unique attitude that these early artist’s shades had. The formula is quite simple, take a classic design and then make it “louder.” The unique stem design with the flashy gold frame really draws attention to these shades. The best part is they are unisex, which means anyone can look good wearing these “old school cool” sunglasses!

  • Celebrity Shades Spotlight: Selena Gomez 3025 Polarized Ray-Ban Aviators

    Aviators have had a big comeback the last 5 years, especially with celebrities. Selena Gomez is often spotted wearing Ray-Bans, so it comes to no surprise that she is pictured here wearing these classic 3025 aviators. This particular pair is a little different than the originals because it has polarized lenses. These make great beach glasses because the polarized lenses help protect the eyes against the direct sun and the UV rays. Selena probably realizes that the polarization is worth the extra money because of the added protection and visibility it offers! If you want to check out a pair of these for yourself click here.
