Made in the Shade
Once only worn by military men, pilots and sitcom police officers, aviators have become the classic go-to shades. Ray-Ban introduced the trendsetting design 70 years ago, but manages to keep current versions fresh using blue leather accents. And all the top eyewear designers are lining up. Classicist? Thin metal frames and tortoise shell accents are elbowing onto the scene and Prada, Gucci and Tom Ford are taking front and center.
