On The Hunt For

Perfect aviators

Top of my list this summer was to replace my aviators. The search was on for a pair with gold frames, amber lenses and most importantly, they must be comfortable atop my head (when in the market, etc.). There are a lots of great ones out there- I tried Oliver Peoples’ Benedict, Tom Ford’s Charles, the classic Ray Bans (like Jennifer’s in the previous post) and the Vargas by Salt. Just when I thought I had tried them all, I found the Flight by Dita, and they were it. These sunglasses are lightweight titanium and the perfect shape and size for my face. They are keepers.

  • i love my Oliver Peoples aviators. I’ve had them for over 4 years and wear them practically everyday (I live in Dubai). The one thing i would not recommend is to rest them on your head, not only do they get stuck in your hair but can damage the frames therefore shortening the life span. When you spend so much money on them you really want to look after them.
