New Tom Ford Shades

This Pablo model is actually two pairs of sunglasses in one. One set of lenses fits right into the metal frame and the other set sits in plastic inserts. The Pablo is an evolution of an earlier Ford design as worn by Daniel Craig; these are much better proportioned and actually a fine fit for both men and women.
The sunglass history buffs at Eyegoodies, where the Pablo can be purchased for $450 a pair, note the influence of an old (1970’s) Ted Lapidus aviator with the plastic inserts in, and the Porsche Design Aviators from the 1980’s with the plastic inserts out.
The Pablo comes in three colors: gold / light havana (pictured above), gunmetal / dark havana, and gold /black.
