Things in this universe tend to go in circles, the orbit of the planets, the movement of the oceans, the wheels of motion and the cycles of popular fashion. At the moment, especially in the world of accessories and sunglasses, we have come around full circle again, with things that were fashionable decades ago becoming retro now and trendy to wear once more.
To reflect this trend here at Eye For Sunglasses, we stock a large range of retro sunglasses so you’re sure to find a pair of retro shades to suit you and your revivalist expressionism. The best thing about retro though is it expresses what was cool back in the day in a twentieth century way, so all these shades have modern twists and top of the range, 100% UV eye protection technology.
For big, bold square frames that draw attention to the eyes and accentuate their round qualities, go for a pair of Maui Jim Lani, Maui Jim Palms or Serengeti Vittoria. For that retro, 1950’s school teacher look, softened by the curves of modernity, try a pair of Maui Jim Lilikoi, that come in a range of colours or for even more rounded edges, go for the Serengeti Bianca. The Serengeti Genova have a trim rectangular design with bold 1970’s style arms. If 1950’s and 60’s rock n’ roll is your bag then try the Dirty Dog Shovel, with that classic wayfarer shape given an update in white nylon frames and reflective mirrored lenses.
In the sunglasses world no colour is more retro than tortoise shell, first popularised in the late sixties early seventies, it is a design that has never really fallen out of favour with sunglasses. To reflect this we have many shades in that very colour, including many already mentioned, as well as the Serengeti Vetera and Serengeti Giuliana
