Old is gold. And as far as fashion is concerned, the older, the classier, and more precious to us. After 80 years of invention of women’s sunglasses, there’s no design or style that doesn’t fit into millennial fashion, except for the surrealistic hexagonal glasses of the late 30s (recall Rosalind Russell in the movie “The Women”).
Let’s take one of the oldest designs for example- the Aviators. And then let’s take a look at the reinvented aviators by Warby Parker- Batten Large. Same design, different style, same class in a different time.
Framed to Fit
Warby Parker’s Batten Large is a revamped version of the classic aviator with a slightly larger frame in a wide fit. Available in a standard size of 58-13-140, these bold sunnies are made for wider faces. But if you want to add a little funk to your style, sport the Batten Large on a narrow or smaller face as well, to bring about a retro-look to your ensemble.
Moving away from tradition, these polished aviator glasses are made from the strongest, but lightest ion-plated titanium, so they can withstand a little rough treatment. And thank the makers for offering a 1-year, no- scratch guarantee on the lenses, because we know how sunglasses find their ways inside your hobos and totes with all the electronics, keys and loads of other items that you carry around with you all day. And in case you somehow manage to get a scratch, Warby Parker replaces your lenses absolutely for free within the first 12 months!
The Batten Style
From Gloria Steinhem to Angelina Jolie and now the Kardashians, the aviators for women have seen the turn of centuries and fashion movements across decades. But the characteristics of these sunglasses remain undaunted by time. The Warby Parker Batten Large are available in 2 contrasting styles and colors.
- Bright Gold with Brown Gradient lenses
The modern Batten Large aviators with a touch of tradition, come in gold polished frames and brown gradient lenses. Go classic with these glasses, paired with a leather jacket, denim skinnies and your favorite scarf, when you are ready to hit the road on a bright sunny morning.
Alternately, complement your business separately in black, beige or blue and go about your day looking gorgeous as ever. Don a simple white sheath dress and these glasses. You won’t need any other weapon to nail that lunch meeting (or even a date, if it is).
- Rose Gold with Flash Mirrored Rose Gold lenses
Chic, sleek and slick, this snazzy version of the classic aviators is for those who don’t want to hide behind the lenses. The flash mirrored lenses add to the swag – let yourself reflect on the world! Shaped in a rose gold titanium frame and rose gold lenses, these lady-like aviator sunglasses will surely make a rosy day. And the signature Warby Parker acetate temple tips will doubly ensure comfort.
Go adventurous, stay subtle or be loud and frilly. Wear them to special times or as a part of your daily wardrobe. Whether you want to define or refine your personality, the Batten Large aviators will become your go-to sunglasses.
