Twists on the Classic Aviator
Strictly speaking, “Aviators” can only be made by Ray-Ban. It’s their design from back in 1937 when they were tasked to come up with a pair of sunglasses for US Air Force pilots. But you know how these things work! The fashion world got hold of the Aviator design and did what it always does: experimented. As a result, we have a range of Aviator-style sunglasses from other designers that took the classic, top-heavy Aviator design in strange new directions. Judging from new collections and exhibitions, we’ll continue to see twists on the classic Aviator design in 2017.
I think we’ll also see flowers, gems, and sparkles on sunglasses throughout 2017. Now this trend obviously caters to women, but who knows? Maybe we’ll see some guys flashing a little sparkle this year. (Girls, we’ve been wearing masculine styles for years, right?) What’s fun about this look is you can choose an embellishment based on your mood. Are you flowery and pretty, or blinged-up and luxurious? You decide.
