Everyone looks hotter in sunglasses. Life is better in shades. Death wears shades in paradise. Fact.
Why? Simple. Sunglasses make a misshapen face look better. Period. Put on a pair of sunglasses, and badaboom; instant symmetry. Dark lenses cover up asymmetrical oddities around the eyes, and the frames provide a kind of scaffolding effect, imposing the appearance of an external, extra-chiseled bone structure. Plus, we’re drawn to people we can’t quite figure out. Shades give an air of mystery and make anyone instantly more intriguing and sexually desirable, even really ugly people. That’s science.
When sam foster designed the very first modern sunglasses in 1929 in Atlantic city they instantly caught on with Hollywood types, who used them to obscure their faces from the paparazzi. Immediately, sunglasses were imbued with glamour. Then in 1936, the u.S. Air force commissioned a protective lens for fighter pilots and the iconic aviators were distributed throughout the air force. Fighter pilots added a heroic edge and utility to the Hollywood celebrity. Sunglasses have been a style mainstay ever since.
Enter Andrew eldritch, gothic lord, post-punk god, darkwave surfer, hard rocking lead singer of the sisters of mercy, the sisterhood and ssv who took the aviator and all that went with it to the next level. He wore a particular ‘tear-shaped’ deep blue flash mirror lensed, metal trimmed, aviator. Problem was, no one could buy them. They were made only for him. That changes here and now.
