Aviator Sunglasses


We all know that Hollywood influences fashion. Here's one more example:

Aviator sunglasses are poised for a new surge, this time as The Aviator glasses. The Aviator’s director, Martin Scorsese, a longtime friend of Giorgio Armani, approached the designer to create the period eyewear for the film. Working closely with Safilo Group, Armani’s eyewear manufacturer, and its historical eyewear archives from this era, Giorgio Armani developed two signature sunglass styles in particular for lead actor Leonardo DiCaprio.

And now, just in time for the film’s theatrical release, Armani is introducing a version of the featured classic metal aviator into his signature eyewear collection. Known as the GA 261S, this metal aviator sunglass will be available in four colors (gold/green, gold/brown, ruthenium/dark gray, gun metal/dark gray) and comes with a limited edition hard case. The sunglasses retail for $260.
