Gucci Tortoiseshell Aviator Sunglasses
The Aviator has become perhaps the most iconic sunglasses style in fashion history. The design dates back to 1936 and was first used by the military aviators, hence the name.
The military trend is again going to become a major driving force within menswear for the coming AW12 season, and what better way to embrace this trend than with a pair of sunnies? A good pair of sunglasses are timeless, and one of the best ways to add your personal stamp to any look. They can even become one of your ‘signature pieces’, so it is wise to invest well in a pair that fully represents your personality and suits your overall image.
These Gucci Tortoiseshell Aviator Sunglasses feature black and tortoiseshell acetate frames, with the gold tone accents complimenting the brown lenses beautifully. The overall colour palette is very neutral, making them easy to pair with any ensemble and a variety of skin tones. The frame measures 5 x 2 inches, which is a masculine size that would compliment most face shapes without overpowering them.
These aviator glasses are stylish, classic and versatile. Many people forget that during the winter, you will still have sunny and/or extremely bright days where they remain an imperative accessory to carry round with you. These frames are so versatile that they would look just as good worn on the beach as they would whilst Christmas shopping.
”Heritage is good for me — going back to the archives, but looking forward to the future.”
