The American brand was purchased recently (in 1999) by an Italian company group, but the exquisite eyewear produced under the prestigious label is still considered one of the symbols of the American upper class. The brand’s most coveted items are the Wayfarer and Aviator style of sunglasses, and both of these have become quite iconic for high style throughout the recent American history. The elegance of mid-century famous Americans – like Jackie O and so on – could not be imagined today without a pair of these sunglasses.
