Polaroid Best Under The Sun archive sunglasses collection

Sun1

Perhaps now known more for its cameras, Polaroid was once a prime mover in the sunglasses market, producing some iconic styles from the '60s onwards. Some of those are celebrated and reissued in the Polaroid Best Under The Sun archive collection, now available via the Design Museum.

Four styles are on offer, Memphis, Donna, Image (designed by Kenneth Grange) and Rebel. Memphis is the one above, worn by musicians and hipsters in the 1960s, reproduced in premium nickel silver and state of the art TR90 for the modern market. They retail for £69.

Also, check out over the page for the other styles, all taken from the 1970s and 1980s and priced between £69 and £85.
