Special002 Stevie Wonder
I think you all remeber my first special about my alltime fav. sunglasses the Alpina M1!!!
Today its time for the 2nd Special and this time its not about a COOL FRAME that everybody loves, no, its about a COOL GUY that everybody loves. STEVE WONDER was born in 1950 and is known all over the World as a great musician. His first recored was recorded in 1962 so he only was 12 years old and since this time there was no stopping for him as musican and componist. But thats not the only reason im posting this here, you all gone know, it about his style of shades he is wearing the 70′s and 80′s.
I really was suprised when i was searching for photos what kind of styles he was rocking. Some of them is well known and i can easely name them but there are a lot i dident could identify. Maybe one of you can tell me a frame so i could expend my knowledge about vintage frames.
Thanks for yourt help, just leave a comment or drop me a mail.

Me and my brandnew Technic Design by Alpina!!! Surf Version!!! Made in W.Germany 80′s
First i saw this Model of maddnes from Alpina on Solaris great Blog in two different colors and i love them.
And Corey form the VintageFramesCompany decided, that its a Creme de la Creme Frame!!!
Now i call them my own in a 3rd colorway and as a surf-version. I was wondering if the Grey one is a Surf or not. Anyway in white they are the Best!!!
Those Alpinas are f…… HUGE!!! They have about the size of the Porsche Design 5620.
They are just great, what do you think?
Alpina M1/8 Made in W. Germany "Rare as Hell"
Its a Alpina M1/8 as far as i learned it was only made cause of an anniversary of the Alpina Company and only gave away to spacial shopholder or customers…i dont know if its the truth but they are really rare so it sounds like it could be.
I know three colorways of the M1/8. The White, the Black and the Golden one, all 3 have the tortoise decor as you cann see on the white one. These are really really ill!!!
Everyone loves the Alpina M1, me too!!!
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.
Alpina ProCar Series, Black Gold Aviator , 1980 80′s, Made in West Germany
Damn, those are the shit!!!
Even if the ALPINA M1 are my most favorit Sunglasses from Alpina, those are almost as big as the M1s!!!
The best part on this Glasses from the ProCar Series is that the temples and the width of the nose are adjustable. So they really fit great!!!
My friend Masa from Japan got another pair in white and gold, if you love vintage sunglasses check his blog an site!!!
Just me and my Stratos!!!
Uvex Sportstyle 75 Folding Made in W.Germany Grey/Clear Frame 1980 80′s
Great Folding Aviators. Uvex stands for „ultraviolet excluded“ and its an old german company. I learnt that uvex is the Mothercompany of ALPINA one of the greatest shadesproducers of the 80′s.
This great gray pair of Sunglasses is a wonderful Sportstyle 75 Folding, a very light frame and a really hugh aviator. I feel like they are really rare. I love aviators in this size, they fit me best!
