For decades the classic ‘Teardrop’ or ‘Aviator’ style sunglasses have dominated the fashion and eyewear world with celebrities, film stars, fashionistas and the public alike all adorning these flattering and inherently alluring frames. Many brands have got in on the act including Dior Sunglasses, Gucci Sunglasses, Oliver Peoples Sunglasses, Police Sunglasses, Polo by Ralph Lauren Sunglasses, Tom Ford Sunglasses and of course the brand that started the craze; Ray Ban Sunglasses. The original Ray Ban RB3025 Aviator Sunglasses have featured in a vast array of films, TV shows and on the faces of some of the world’s most loved celebrities with the most famous appearance being made in Top Gun back in 1986. Everything about the Aviator style made them bound for success; the teardrop effect lens accentuates the natural lines on your face and will therefore suit the vast majority of people whatever their head size or shape. In this blog post we are going to explore some of the most popular Aviator models and run through exactly what makes each one so incredibly popular.
Ray Ban RB3025 - These are the grand-daddy of retro styling and stone cold cool eyewear. Back in the early 80s, sunglasses were primarily made from thick plastic which looked fantastic but were sometimes a little bit laborious if you wanted to wear them all day…enter the Aviator. Made from thin metal alloy, the frames sat comfortably on your face and never dug in thanks to their cushioned nose pads and unique shape; something that we had never seen before! Nowadays, the Ray Ban Aviator Sunglasses still turn heads and look just as iconic as their 20th century ancestors.
Dior Piccadilly 2 - Dior are one of the world leaders in fashion with their designs considered to be trend-setting and their eyewear second to none. The Dior Piccadilly 2 Aviator Sunglasses use both acetate and metal alloy to amazing effect and add a touch of dimension to the already stunning design.
Gucci GG4225/S - When you hear the name Gucci you are instantly transported to images of the truly rich living in true luxury, however their sunglasses are far from inaccessible. The Gucci GG4225/S Aviator Sunglasses not only utilise the teardrop lenses and thin frames, but further improve the design by adding a feminine weave effect on the arms!
Oliver Peoples Benedict - Born on the iconic Sunset Blvd Strip in Hollywood, Oliver Peoples has expanded its horizons massively from the small boutique they had back in 1986. The Oliver Peoples Benedict Sunglasses have slightly narrower lenses to the standard Aviator style meaning that they have a more ‘wrap-around’ appearance.
Police S8299 - Police were one of the founders of vivid and colourful designer eyewear and their brand new Aviator style S8299 Sunglasses juxtapose their rich history with modern innovation. With a slightly thicker frame and extended top bar, they are a breath of fresh air in the Aviator world!
Polo by Ralph Lauren PH3056 - Part of globally renowned fashion house, Ralph Lauren, Polo has started to become a fashion stalwart of its own and the PH3056 Aviator Sunglasses prove this perfectly. Polo’s instantly recognisable logo is perched proudly on the thick arms as a sign of quality and their continued fervour for fashion excellence.
Tom Ford Cole - Tom Ford Sunglasses are so ‘on trend’ at the moment, it is difficult to keep their sunglasses in stock long enough to see the new styles! Luckily, however, we have seen the Tom Ford Cole Aviator Sunglasses and they are simply stunning. Made from both acetate and metal alloy, the top bar stands out prominently for a truly head-turning look!

Further to our visit to the prestigious Dior catwalk event, we have now got some information about the new releases set to hit the shelves in Spring/Summer 2013 from Dior Sunglasses. There are going to be 2 special editions; the Dior Demoiselle 1 Sunglasses and the Dior Demoiselle 2 Sunglasses which express Dior’s modern elegance and savoir-faire. The futuristic design features accentuate Dior’s constant fervour for fashion perfection with touches of colour meeting in a beautiful butterfly effect frame; ideal to add a touch of class to any outfit.
The Dior Demoiselle 1 Sunglasses underline the asymmetrical nature of a brow line in a stunningly feminine way, with particular focus on the multifaceted sophistication of Dior’s catwalk experience. Contrastingly, the Dior Demoiselle 2 Sunglasses feature exactingly symmetrical brow lines and the colour palette is chic and refined. Metal frame accents are hand painted to match the crystal temple designs perfectly and ‘pastel metalised effects’ lend an irresistible appeal to these amazing sunglasses. Such creativity combined with high quality manufacturing techniques honour Dior’s timeless elegance and relationship with a new contemporary stylistic statement.
Dior Sunglasses for Spring/Summer 2013 are the utmost expression of Raf Simon’s (Creative Director at Christian Dior) couture inspirations for the season, and he recently stated that; “freedom is the motto, allowing the perfect match between a futuristic design and a feminine spirit.” Here at Shade Station we couldn’t agree more and they will surely be amazingly popular this Spring/Summer season. Keep up to date by following us on Facebook and Twitter and we will let you know exactly when these arrive in with us…

If you are a lover of luxury (and who isn’t!) then Dior sunglasses should be on top of your accessories list. The Christian Dior brand is exceptionally highly regarded for its exquisite design, superior quality and ability to capture the essence of timeless luxury within its products.
The man behind the name, Christian Dior was born in 1905, in a small town called Grenville in France. When he was slightly older Dior was forced to move for financial reasons to the Soviet Union following the death of his mother and brother. A friend gave him somewhere to stay and it was here that Dior practiced and developed his passion for sketching and began drawing ideas for dresses and hats.
Christian Dior started to sell his sketches, and struck lucky when a famous actress loved them so much that she purchased every sketch. This allowed the artist to move back to Paris where he gained further professional experience in fashion design. In 1946 he started his own collection and Dior’s first show was 90 outfits worn by six girls. Christian Dior wanted to bring back femininity and beauty and make women feel womanly and elegant once more. Of course, women all around the world were favouring this new style and fashion but some others were not so keen and felt it was inappropriate and a little too glamorous. Despite some governments throughout the world forbidding the line branding it outrageous and wasteful, Christian Dior went on to become one of the most iconic designers in the world and even since his death in 1957, the brand name has continued to dominate the fashion industry.
Full of drama, each pair of Dior sunglasses comes with a name to reflect the design ; the 60’s 1 sunglasses for example are typically 60’s with a vibrant panther print and oversized and the Very Dior sunglasses are indeed, very much the essence of the brand with exquisite oversized lenses with a figure of eight style gold frame and white arms.
If you are looking for a pair of sunglasses with a bit more edge, the Diorrisima sunglasses in a wraparound shape have a great fit and will stay on no matter the activity. These sunglasses are a great way of injecting instant glamour with the most casual of outfits with their sleek jet black frames and abstract patterned detailing at the side of the lenses.
For a pair of the standard classic oversized sunglasses with slightly square shaped frames, the Miss Dior 1 sunglasses are perfect. A hit among the most glamorous of celebrities, these sunglasses are simple with clean subtle lines and the combination of black, white, red and bronze colouring injects a contemporary edge to a classic style. These shades would look beautiful with a simple and elegant dress and are the epitome of Parisian chic.
Christian Dior clothing and accessories are largely associated with women, but within the selection of Dior sunglasses, there is also something for the men! The Dior Homme sunglasses have a classic and sophisticated style with simple slim black frames and graduated grey lenses. With a masculine on-the-go attitude and a hint of sporty appeal, these sunglasses are the ideal way of injecting some style into your man!
Christian Dior defines the essence of vintage glamour that instantly conjures up images of Hollywood beach side glamour and beauty. With a huge array of flattering and exquisite styles, the Dior sunglasses collection is the perfect way to add something truly chic and beautiful into your wardrobe. The addition of a fabulous pair of sunglasses can make a striking difference to your look and image and after all, Dior himself wanted women to feel feminine and beautiful and this is exactly what the collection captures.

When you think of the luxury brand Christian Dior, you immediately think of glitz, glamour, drama and sophistication and that is exactly what surrounds the theme of the brand outside of the actual products. Famous for its elaborate and movie style commercials, earlier this year, Dior also homed in on the tech craze and made mobile fashionable in its multichannel effort to promote its iconic product the Lady Dior handbag.
The movie which is available to view via an iPhone application , is reminiscent of a black-and-white Alfred Hitchcock style film and is titled ‘The Lady Noire Affair’. The app allows viewers to watch a trailer, the entire movie and its making all from the comfort of their iPhone.
The Christian Dior brand, founded by French fashion designer Christian Dior was properly launched back in 1947 but what even older brands are recognising and embracing is that old fashioned marketing strategies are no longer effective in today’s era whereby mobile and interactive marketing is far more successful and reaches and engages consumers instantly.
The Dior movie is much like the commercials seen on television for Chanel starring actress Nicole Kidman. The mini-movie is about a woman named Lady Marion and what she may possibly have in her Lady Dior bag. To build anticipation and increase demand for the new Lady Dior bag, the company used social media tool Twitter to reveal one clue a day about the film until its release which of course built up anticipation and created a buzz and excitement about the Dior handbag. The film is a tribute to Dior’s renowned Parisian style and the Lady Dior bag. The film is eight minutes long and is the first of a series of four mini-movies.
Christian Dior is an incredibly iconic brand and the designer was renowned for his ability to create beautiful shapes and silhouettes and made women look ultra feminine. A famous quote from the designer ‘I have designed flower women’ and this involved a look which accentuated the waist and bust and creating garments which created a curvaceous look.
The collection of Dior sunglasses are wonderfully exquisite and glamorous, and designed to look fabulous and create a high couture style statement. Famous for the love of the colour pink which is a common colour in many of the Dior accessories, some of the sunglasses feature rose tinted lenses and pink frames but remain ultra chic and sophisticated. Some of the new styles also include dramatically oversized frames which are reminiscent of 1950’s Hollywood glamour and there is also a selection of contemporary frames that are simple in style and highly on trend.
Dior is a classic brand that it has a unique style of its own. If you wear Dior, it definitely says something about your style personality and this is a high fashion designer label that depicts the essence of femininity. Dior is incredibly popular and regarded as sought after by many young people who favour the brand for the reason that it was loved decades ago. By keeping up with technology and adapting its marketing strategies accordingly, this has enabled the brand to reach out to the younger and tech savvy generation. The style of advertising campaigns and movies are also directed to portray the brand as one which oozes beauty, delicacy and glamour and also adds an element of the entertainment factor to the Dior brand which has proved to be very effective.

Christian Dior. As soon as I hear those two words I think glamour, beauty, luxury and sophistication. The brand, whose designer was one of the most influencial of the late 1940’s and 1950’s (and one of the most iconic of our time), is created for people who adore fashion and thus Dior sunglasses are made for the fashion conscious. They make a statement and proof to the fact that practicality can easily be combined with striking beauty.
The range of Dior sunglasses for 2009 is simply divine and of course complete with an array of frames, styles and lens tints. One of the new styles includes the Very Dior white to gold coloured frames which are quite retro in appearance and the complete essence of glamour. Think Miranda Priestly (Meryl Streep) style in The Devil Wears Prada! The new Dorita 2 pink and brown design is also fantastic and has a funkier edge as the colour is graduated. The brown tinted lenses also make for a very sophisticated 70’s feel. Of course, the classic frames including the plastic edge Stronger style are still as popular as ever and the brand perfectly carries its own unique flair within all the designs within the range.
Indeed, function is important when choosing a pair of sunglasses but let’s be honest, Dior shades in addition to function are also heavily geared towards the wonderful feeling of owning an iconic accessory and looking aesthetically beautiful. They certainly achieve that sense of satisfaction! Celebrities who love a touch of Dior include Christina Aguilera, Gwen Stefani, Madonna, Heidi Montag and Angelina Jolie to name only a few. Christian Dior sunglasses are definitely the perfect fashion accessory for those who value style, looks and creating an impact.

Oversized sunglasses are a sure hit among celebrities and ooze A List style. Indeed this particular style of shades has maintained iconic fashion status in recent seasons and has become quite a pop culture phenomenon. The lady who first made them famous was First Lady and American Royalty Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis who favoured oversized style sunglasses during the early 1970’s era. This signature style is most commonly referred to now as ‘The Jackie O’ which numerous celebrities also opt for due to the dramatic and sophisticated look the sunglasses create.
Many designers such as Prada and Gucci have certainly caught onto this Hollywood glamour trend. However, the style of the oversized sunglasses may not be suitable for every face shape so no matter how determined you are to replicate the Jackie O look, don’t opt for oversized if they are not designed to flatter your facial features. The numerous brands and similar styles available on the market will ensure your shades can create that A List drama in a way that is perfect to suit you.
