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.

Ellesse 1970s replica ski jacket


Here is something just a little different for winter wear – the Ellesse 1970s replica ski jacket.

Admittedly more suitable for a skiing break (that’s what it was originally designed for), it should be pretty useful if winter kicks in hard again this year too. A limited edition collector’s piece, the jacket is an exact archive replica, with a ‘puffer’ style, ribbed collar, waist and cuffs, side pockets, warm padded insulation and of course, some eye-catching ’70s style.

If you want one, you can grab one online for £249.
