Some things just never get old...vintage sunglasses

 In design it has been proven that "their is no such thing as anything NEW only the reiteration of what was" or "one must know where they have been in order to know where they are going".  Many designers utilize reflecting on what was proven to be successful and fashionable and reintroduce it and "make what was once old new again". This photo of the Fall 2012 sunglass collection from DVF mirrors that sentiment quite clearly.

On the Right you have the original Nina Ricci
as once worn by Jackie O available for purchase at atticeyewear.com. The circa 1970's Nina Ricci sunglass reflects the thought process which was to offer a designer fashionable product with exceptional quality and protection and this vintage sunglass did so exceptionally well!

Currently this 20th century standard does not apply.  Designer Labels are "slapped" on sub-standard goods and consumers are unaware that what one is truly paying for is the licensing fee of the brand not the luxury of the goods that should be synonymous with designer labels.

So if you want both "Quality and designer fashion" go Vintage!

  1. Different color lenses give different levels of protection from the UV rays of the sun. For example, amber and brown do a better job of absorbing the UV light. Treatment of clear lenses with anti-reflective coatings will protect the eyes from UV radiation. The best level of protection from UV rays is 100 per cent. The anti-reflective coating has an additional benefit of helping to protect the lenses from some surface scratches.

  2. Sunglasses have various types of lenses. Glass lenses have better visual quality and are more scratch-resistant than plastic ones. Photo chromic lenses darken in reaction to light.
