Solaris makes its cinema

We spoke in our last article about the emotional connection between musicians and sunglasses. Music is not the only art that has a great interest in this accessory. The cinema has also made an eye for him for several years. Together let's review the mythical frames of cinema


60's/70's cinema

The 60's / 70's classics have seized this flagship accessory. Sunglasses reinforce the presence of the actor by giving him a certain charisma.

We saw an oversize model on the beautiful Audrey Hepburn in Breakfast in America (1961). Steve McQueen made us dream with his iconic Persol 714 sunglasses in The Thomas Crown Affair (1968). For the more fanciful side we can find in one of the first Kubrick, actress Sue Lyon proudly wear heart-shaped red sunglasses in the movie Lolita (1962). In Taxi-Driver (1976), Robert De Niro sports a punk look before the hour with his pilot sunglasse.

Finally, the phenomenon of the sunglasses, did not escape the French cinema. Alain Delon, in The Pool (1969), also let himself be tempted to perfect his look by a rectangular frame of the brand Vuarnet.

The Persol 714 was worn by a famous actor. Already in tune with the times, this mount has subsequently made a splash after the release of the film.

Imagine this GG0029S frame with a cape and a trapeze dress. A 60's actress look assured. What do you feel like a star for a day.

Democratized thanks to the cinema, the pilot is one of the flagship mounts of the cinema. The SD7001 respects the codes of this classic.

These 01US sunglasses have a very chic look of the 70's ! Oval shape with thick frame and pink lenses. We love it.



 80's/90's cinema

We can still see an evolution between the cinema sunglasses of the 60's/70s and 80's/90's. We will be in a less fantastic spirit.

There is a threatening effect in Keanu Reeves sunglasses in Matrix (1999). The Blues Brothers (1980) were avant-garde in adopting the mythical Wayfarer by Ray-Ban. Will Smith and Tommy Lee in Men in Black (1997), also swear by Ray-Ban wearing the Predator model. Kevin Costner will also be remembered for Whitney Houston in Bodyguard and his legendary drivers. (As we told you, the 80's / 90's movie mounts do not have the heart-shaped glasses of the 60's).

Fortunately, films like Fight Club (1999) with Brad Pitt bring a little fantasy with his silver mask model with red glasses. And let's not forget the iconic round sunglasses of Jean Réno and Nathalie Portman in Leon (1994).

80's/90's sunglasses



No longer the Wayfarer, seen in many successful movies. It is undeniably one of the most worn mounts in the cinema.




The HSEF19 to make long road trips with a friend! Convertible, deserted road and sun. Does it remind you of something ?

It must be said that the Ray-Ban are as famous as the actors who wear them. This model RB3447, makes us travel in time.


In Style


A young woman became a famous actress wearing sunglasses similar to the PCFF01 in one of her first films. Simple and efficace.
