SPEKTRE DOMINA Aviator Sunglasses - Metal frame / Romantic rose gold lens

As the weather warms up and the sun shines brightly in the sky, sunglasses become an essential part of any outfit. We offer innovative designs and modern style, but we also offer many classic choices. So what is considered “classic” in eyewear?

In apparel, there are certain elements which are historically relevant and never out of style, like plaid, stripes, A-line skirts or even fatigues. Today, we’re going to talk about the classic aviator-style sunglasses, which were originally developed in 1923 as a way to protect a pilot’s eyes against bright light while flying. In a matter of decades, they became popular throughout the world, and today have become almost a basic essential in sun-blocking eyewear.

Aside from the classic aviator style, many frames are now created from a combination of metal and acetate material. Some aviators are even designed with a double bridge or paired with a variety of colored transparent lenses, a must-have for the modern fashionista.




This year’s retro look is all about intense yellow lenses paired with aviator frames, but this color can be a tough match for Asian skin tones, which can appear dull and lifeless in contrast to such a highly saturated color. Instead, we can try lighter hues such as lemon yellow or even rose gold and orange, which can add a boost of vitality to any look.
