There was a time in the dim and distant past, when you switched on your black and white television and through the murky 405 lines and press flashbulbs, every Hollywood celebrity would decant from the B.O.A.C. Turboprop wearing the standard issue Bausch & Lomb Wayfarer sunglasses.
So for decades that are the way it was, the stars came and went but the classic American dream shades sat unmoved on the surgically altered nose bridges of the great and the good. Sadly the brand fell into the doldrums before being sold to Italian Brand Luxottica reinvigorating the brand through canny product placement on movies and television programmes such as ‘Miami Vice’ where the real crime was not wearing a pair of cool wayfarers. The re birth was successful and once again modern celebrities know its cool to look cool with Luxottica reimaging the classic model in a variety of styles for the discerning hipster.
Lets remember though they are not the only kids that have moved into the neighborhood so lets take a thermonuclear protected look at what other stunning shades are out there.
