We have reached the pinnacle of sunglass design. Actually, we probably reached it 50 years ago.
No one is coming up with radical new shapes unless they’re specifically making sports frames (and if they are, don’t wear those every day). The point is, retro sunglasses still reign supreme — but that doesn’t mean there isn’t still innovation. With new materials, surprising accents, imaginative bridges, and subtly textured arms, these classic shapes are fresher than ever.
