The first vintage shades i had where a pair of Alpina M1`s. I found them on a Fleemarket im my hometown. I rocked them without knowing what kind of classicpiece a found for one Euro!!! After a while i realized that Jay Z is rocking the same Pair of shades in his “show me what you got” video. So i started searching for them and now im an addict to all of these vintage glasses.
Now i know that Jay Z is wearing the small version of the M1 but i really like the Big Ones better!!!
I thought it would be intersting to show who is or was sporting the Alpina Topseller from the 80′s. Its not like only the Rapstars from nowerdays are in love with them Alpina sold millions of M1′s when they where originally producted.
The 3rd Cazal on this blog is that wonderful 863 Frame, i think its orginaly for ladies but who cares, when it fits it fits!!! The colorway of this frame rocks with the mindgreen and white strips in combo with black in gold its the shit!!! Cazal is one of the greatest brands for collectors, even if its a new frame or vintage they are still big in biz…many celebs try to get some style by wearing cazals.
What can i say…its a classic!!! The golden and purple frame rocks and the lenses are high quality out of real mineral-glass. They are really conftable to wear even if they are a little heavy cause of the lenses. Just a great piece of the eighties!!!
This is a great pair of Boris Becker shades, Boris gave his name to 4 different styles of sunglasses in the 80′s produced by polaroid. all 4 styles came in 3 different colorways and each with changeable lenses in this brown and a dark gray/greenish one. The colorways of the frames are gold, silver or black. The A version is the Golden one, B the Black and C the Silver version.
