Revo Sunglasses

revo-sunglasses1
Eyegoodies.com is glad to welcome in the new 2009-2010 Revo Sunglasses collection. For those of you who are not familiar with Revo, they manufacture some of the highest optical quality lenses on the market. Founded in 1985, out of the idea that NASA technology was just as suited for sunglasses as it was for space shuttles. All of Revo’s lenses are polarized, come with back anti-reflective coating, and are offered in Serilium Polycarbonate or 1.8mm thin Glass. Revo Polarcast Technology is responsible for creating some of the clearest most advanced polarized sunglasses in the world and it is our pleasure to present them here to you.

All the lenses feature the following technology:

Revo Polarcast -Is a polarizing filter that blocks glare that’s being reflected off flat surfaces like water, snow, and the road.

Element Shed -Is an exclusive lens coating that ensures virtually anything will roll right off the surface of your lens.

Anti-Reflective Coating -Each lens has a back Anti-Reflective Coating, eliminating the light that is reflected off the inside of the lens.
Revo’s lenses are offered in either:

  • 1.8mm Thin Glass Lenses -Revo’s premium glass lenses are very thin: 1.8 mm to be exact. Thus reducing unnecessary weight while maintaining the benefits of glass, like being extremely scratch resistant.
  • Serilium Polycarbonate Lenses –The purest form of polycarbonate known to man. Polycarbonate gained its fame from being extremely light weight and impact resistant. Revo’s serilum Polycarbonate lenses are capable of withstanding high-velocity impact from objects like gravel.


Lens Color
Both Glass and Serilium lenses are offered in three colors, specifically tailored toward different environments:

  • Graphite -The most neutral lens, which allows for the truest color. Graphite is a great general purpose lens and works well for activities such as cycling and climbing. Graphite is Best for bright sunlight.
  • Bronze -Provides the most contrast enhancement and also works well in bright sunlight. Bronze is ideal for golf, water sports, and general activities.
  • Cobalt -works well in all conditions and has a neutral profile that blocks out more blue light, making it a great lens for water applications. Cobalt can also be used in slightly overcast conditions.

Above is an example of the effect a Revo Polarcast Polarized lens has. As you can see it dims the sunlight, blocks glare, and adds contrast.

Chloe Sunglasses CL 2189

Chloe sunglasseschloe 2189 sunglasses
Just in time for fall/winter and sure to be a hit this season, the new Chloe CL 2189 sunglasses.
Inspired by vintage Ted Lapidus sunglasses of decades past, the Chloe 2189 provides an update to the shape of the all popular Chloe 2119 Myrte. At first glance the Chloe 2189 and 2119 might look almost the exact same, however there have been refinements to the fit. The Chloe 2189 slightly contours to the wearer’s face and fits almost everyone who tries it on like a glove.

Available in grey horn with grey gradient lenses and mink (beige) with brown gradient lenses.

Persol Sunglasses

For almost a century the Persol brand has been renowned for its artistry. Persol intertwines top notch craftsmanship and quality with timeless aesthetics producing true works of art, as recently celebrated in the Persol Design Exhibition at the Whitney museum.
I have been a long time collector of Persols from the early, mid, and late Ratti pieces to the current models. After receiving an invitation and attending the opening of Persol’s exhibition, I was inspired to write about, not only my two favorite Persol sunglasses, but perhaps my two all time favorite sunglasses: Persol 649S and Persol 714.

Persol 649S

The persol 649S, created in 1950’s to protect tram drivers from the elements, became instant legend when Marcello Mastroianni wore them in the 1961 Pietro Germi film “Divorce Italian style”.
