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!

If your little darlings are jealous of mummy’s designer sunglasses then worry not – they too can be kitted out with the very best in designer shades, courtesy of Gucci.
The Gucci sunglasses range include Gucci Kids sunglasses, which are the perfect blend of chic, cool and uv protection. We’re constantly warned against the dangers of the sun and it’s harmful uv rays and whilst we adults are still tempted to misbehave in the sun (read, fail to apply lotion and buy cheap sunglasses with naff lenses) it’s important to ensure adolescents are educated and protected from any sun damage at a young age.
As one may expect from the calibre of the stars behind the Gucci Kids advertising campaign, Jennifer Lopez and her 2 year old twins Max and Emme, the sunglasses range is fittingly, uber stylish. Following the season’s trend for sporty styles and circular lenses, the Gucci Kids sunglasses collection packs a punch when it comes to summer fashion. Durable is the name of the game here and every style is constructed from acetate material and comes with a one year guarantee. In addition the lenses are UV protected, ensuring your child’s eyes are fully safeguarded from the sun.
There are two designs to choose from. One is a slightly oversized modern take on the aviator, with frames in different colours and the option of graduated lenses, and the other style is a very hip, very fashionable pair of perfectly round frames in white or black. Gucci Kids sunglasses retail at a surprisingly good price and can be purchased even cheaper at Shade Station, where prices have been slashed this Spring. Whilst it may be tempting to spend less on kids accessories, the importance of sun protection cannot be over-stressed and if you can afford to buy them, Gucci Kids sunglasses offer unbeatable uv protection as well as super star style.

Representing the ultimate in chic and elegant designer style, Gucci Sunglasses has added some fabulous sunglasses to its collection for summer 2011, all of which achieve the perfect balance of being trendy yet timeless.

This masculine style has a slightly wrapped finish, tapered arms and the overall design detailing is kept minimal making these sunglasses perfect for casual everyday wear.
The aviator is a style that we don’t think will ever go out of fashion. Aviator sunglasses are universally flattering and add a sleek finish to every look whilst boasting that laid-back cool edge. Gucci has introduced a new aviator into the collection in the form of the GG2887 sunglasses, specifically designed for ladies. The shape and style remains classic but the combination of the metal and leather frame detailing and the highly positioned bridge adds a modern, fresh and luxe twist.
The celebs are a huge fan of the Gucci brand and style icon Pippa Middleton was recently spotted wearing the super chic GG3168 sunglasses, teaming them with a casual outfit.

Guccio Gucci founded the House of Gucci in Florence in 1906 and his primary skill and creative talent was in the design and manufacturing of leather goods. He started out selling leather bags to horsemen in the 1920’s and progressed to deigning luxury luggage as his clients tended to move from equine transportation to horseless carriages. In 1938 Guccio Gucci opened their first retail shop on the Via Condotti in Rome and the brand became very successful and associated with Hollywood stars such as Audrey Hepburn and Grace Kelly following further store openings in Beverly Hills, Paris and Tokyo. It was in 1947 that the iconic leather handbag with a bamboo handle was launched which is still an incredibly popular Gucci product today. In the 1990’s, Tom Ford was responsible for escalating the brand back to its rightful sought after and exclusive status following it being sold in the 1980’s. Ford extended the product lines and since Frida Giannini’s arrival as Creative Director of Gucci in 2006, the brand range now includes a spectacularly stylish collection of leather accessories, perfumes, colognes, cosmetics, shoes and Gucci sunglasses. Gucci today is still one of the all time classic brands, whose products maintain that highly desired and exclusive appeal. It is often thought that if you own a piece of Gucci clothing or a Gucci accessory that certainly makes a statement about your style and status.
The latest news from Gucci is the announcement that in 2010 Gucci and luxury auction company Christie’s are collaborating to launch the ‘Gucci Collector: Presented by Christie’s’ which is the first online location for the appraisal of Gucci products whereby Gucci collectors can upload their vintage Gucci products and a team of Christie’s and Gucci experts will assess the value of the item. The owner will then have the option to sell the item back to Gucci or to list it at a future Christie’s auction.
The collection of Gucci sunglasses are the perfect representation of the luxurious essence of the brand – with stunningly dramatic frames and the use of bold yet elegant colours and patterns and added aesthetic features such as arm hinge buckle and Gucci logo detailing, a pair of these sunglasses will definitely assert your exquisite and refined taste in fashion. The perfect way to add that elite and much desired Gucci style to your look.

Gucci is one of the oldest and historic brands in the fashion industry and was founded by Guccio Gucci in 1906. Gucci began as a saddlery shop as Guccio had great craftsmanship skills, particularly in leather goods. He started out selling leather bags to horsemen in the 1920’s and then developed into producing luxury luggage as his clients prgressed to traveling via horseless carriages. In 1938 Guccio Gucci opened his first retail shop on the Via Condotti in Rome.
As a brand, Gucci is renowned for its interesting and unique designs and therefore has quite a diverse customer base all around the world due to its innovative products which now consist of clothing, shoes, accessories and sunglasses.

All Gucci sunglasses incorporate some of the typical Gucci features such as the GG bamboo symbol and the colours vary from brown and black to red, green and beige. There is definitely an element of retro and vintage appeal to the style of Gucci sunglasses but with contemporary features such as colour - the new GG3100 sunglasses with their violet frames are a great example of this.

The new GG1926 are a square style with off grey toned frames and gradient lenses and are incredibly unique, fashion forward and have a sporty appeal. Despite being a relatively simple style, the strong lines and definition of these sunglasses definitely create a statement and are the depiction of sophistication.
For a classic oversized style which ooze drama and glamour, the GG3069 jet black Gucci sunglasses with large oval frames and the classic Gucci ‘G’ logo on the arm hinge, are the perfect option and will compliment any outfit with their sleek looks and sophisticated style.
Detailing is a common feature of Gucci and the GG2827 oversized sunglasses in a beautiful textured grey colour incorporate a striking Gucci crest logo on the arm hinge.
If you are looking for a classic aviator style, the GG1905 with silver frames and grey lenses are sophisticated, stylish and probably one of the most versatile of all sunglass styles.
Despite sunglasses being primarily designed as an accessory to protect the eyes, classic designer brands such as Gucci are responsible for also making sunglasses the ultimate fashion statement and thus people are now fascinated by the innovative and visually exciting designs of Gucci sunglasses and the brand’s other collections.
