No offense to Maverick, but it’s about time those aviators took a nosedive.
This spring, reach maximum altitude with a pair of shades from local company Mayfourteenth instead.
The 2011 collection bridges the gap between retro and modern. Lift off with the masculine Vito, another Cruise-inspired look (Risky Business, anyone?) complete with Wayfarer-esque round lenses and thick black frame. More feminine styles, like the pretty, oversize Elise or the cat-eyed Rose, get our pulses racing.
Each pair is shaped and polished by hand and made from sturdy vintage materials.
Looks like we just found that loving feeling.
Available online at mayfourteenth.com, $200-$220.
