30TH ANNIVERSARY WIMBLEDON WIN

To celebrate the 30th anniversary of Boris Becker’s famous Wimbledon win – at 17 Becker was the youngest player to win the men’s singles title – PUMA have released a series of animated films created by French illustrator, Ruben Gerard.

The films display Gerard’s retro-futurist and sculptural approach that accompany original commentary and sound bites from the match. The film also highlights the Becker OG shoe that he wore, as well the PUMA Match, a style born on the court but now a lifestyle sneaker that showcases PUMA’s heritage of unmatched on-court glory and off-court style.

Fashion: SUNGLASSES | RAY BAN ROUND

  • Ray-Ban (RB2180) R1810, Luxottica (021-4866100)
    The classic Ray-Ban Round shape is modernized in these ultra-contemporary, 100% acetate frames. Available in five colors: classic black, Havana, blue, green and dove-grey.
  • RAY-BAN (RB2447) R1940, Luxottica (021-4866100)
    The use of both acetate and metal gives this style a new take on the iconic Ray-Ban Round model. Available in a range of metallic matte colors: gunshot grey, gold and black. Also available in fresh Havana “Fleck” acetates mixed with blue, green and red.

ROUND UP!

Round frame styles hark back to the earliest days of sunglasses. In the twenties and thirties when sunnies first became popular – round frames were the shape de rigueur.

So it comes as no surprise then, with the current focus on Heritage in menswear, that eyewear revisits the shapes of yesteryear. The Autumn/Winter 2015/2016 collection from Ray-Ban sees the arrival of original and alluring new versions of the iconic Ray-Ban Round models. Add an edge of vintage cool with any of these.
