The first sunglasses produced for mass consumption were produced in the late 1920s while the first well known brand and model that emerged were the Rayban aviator sunglasses, originally produced in the 1940s.
There were two shapes which disrupted the eyewear market in the 1960s- the cat-eye and the oversized sunglasses originally worn by Jackie Kennedy. It was the period when sunglasses started to become a fashion accessory used by celebrities and movie stars as a part of their personal style. From then onwards different shapes and sizes emerged with the most iconic ones being the cat-eye, the Kurt Cobain’s Christian Roth’s, the Elvis Presley’s Neo style Nautic, the John Lennon’s Teashades, the Browline sunglasses and the fable rose coloured sunglasses.
