Sunpocket Original sunglasses

Another design dug out of the archives – in the case of Sunpocket Original sunglasses it's not too long since they left circulation the first time round.

The sunglasses originated in the late 1970s in France, where they were developed for use in skiing and other winter sports. However, they reached their hey-day in the 1980s, when their folding frame and looks found favour on the street too. They're back again, to see if they can reach such levels of popularity again in 2011. 

This matt vanilla pair costs £45.
