Celebrities in the music and movie worlds have played a big role in shaping fashion trends. Audrey Hepburn's cate-etc frames, Bob Dylan's Wayfarers and John Lennon's round sunglasses have helped make retro glasses a blazon of sophisticated style. Household name brands are always ready to relaunch comeback models based on vintage flair, but many prefer the original, authentic eyewear. These are among the most popular retro sunglasses we receive daily for repair.
CAT EYE SUNGLASSES
The sweeping cut of cat-eye glasses has a glamorous, feminine vibe that appeals to every age. The iconic style took off in the 1950s and has repeated its charm to every generation.
Originally designed for use by fight limits in World War III, the large teardrop lens has a cool vibe that never seems to fade.
ROUND LENS EYEWEAR
Popularised by the 1960s counter-culture and a favourite of musicians and artists, round eyewear still makes a bold fashion statement.
With their bold frames, Wayfarers were introduced by Ray-Ban in the 1950s but became highly popular in the 1970s and are now considered the most classic retro style.
