FOR THE LOVE OF CARS – There aren’t too many accessories that have proven to be as essential behind the wheel as a pair of sunglasses. But significantly improving your driving experience isn’t all they can do. They can also become a defining element of the time you spend on the road.

Ralph Lauren apparently thinks the same, since the brand has just put out a new set of frames dedicated to vintage automobiles. Titled the “Automotive Collection”, the new shades are inspired by the technical refinement of older luxury cars. With sleek lines and clean silhouettes, they successfully combine the qualities of modern eyewear with the unbeatable charm of a vintage vehicle. Watch the video and see all of these elements come together in a mesmerizing way:

Designed with pilot-shaped lenses, the women’s sunglasses boast a graceful metal frame that rounds off their striking appearance. In the video, the shades are also presented in a leather-covered version, matching the cool vibe and timeless appeal of leather interiors.

The men’s sunglasses from the new Ralph Lauren automotive eyewear collection are also based on the classic aviator silhouette. The ones in the video are made from lightweight aluminum and have perforated leather tips in a charming cognac color. Just the right details for an enhanced driving experience – Ralph Lauren style.
