Giorgio Armani Sunglasses Express Classic EleganceGiorgio Armani is old school in the finest possible way. Armani is Italian - born in 1934 in Piacenza, Italy, he actually studied medicine and photography, but after taking a job as a window dresser, he remained firmly rooted in the world of style. Many of his early styles were inspired by the simple frocks of upper-crust, postwar Britain, and he brought his new perspective back to Italy with him. At first he was called elitist, because his designs weren't exactly inspired by the average British schoolteacher or gamekeeper, but by royalty and landed gentry.
However, the understated classic elegance of his work prevailed in the long run, and there are tremendously lucky men and women with closets full of Armani pieces from the 1970s till today, each of which is as beautiful and stylish now as it was when it was sewn.
Giorgio Armani sunglasses are an extension of his style aesthetic. They're classic and mostly understated. Now, someone who fancies Dolce & Gabbana or Versace may think of Armani's styles as too conservative, and compared to some of his fellow Italians, he's definitely more classic. But for every fashion peacock sporting a pair of Dolce & Gabbana DG 2024 aviator shades, there's a black swan who would rather wear a pair of GA-134s rather than let his sunglasses wear him.
And if you're looking for shades for a special guy in your life and don't know where to start, have a look at the GA-609. This is an almost universally flattering rectangular shape that you can get in either a classic tortoise or black frame at a terrific price. They're versatile enough and stylish enough even for men who consider themselves picky about their looks.
Not that Armani doesn't know how to have fun. If anything, he designs his accessories knowing that the more comfortable a person is in his or her look, the more fun he or she can have in a given situation. A woman with a pair of GA-338S sunglasses in buttery Marbled Beige or caramel-like Marble Light Brown knows that the oversized square shape flatters her face and the colors flatter her skin so she can worry about other things, like all those handsome men that seem to surround her wherever she goes.
Despite his reputation for the classics, Giorgio Armani has some designs that are more daring. The GA-645 and the GA-656 are two women's frames that will draw attention with their fashion-forward lines. The GA-656 even has the Giorgio Armani logo on the temple pieces, a style beloved by Dolce & Gabbana and Gucci, two other Italian design labels that have reputations for creating trends.
Like the clothing that he designs, Armani has designed his sunglasses to slip right into just about any wardrobe and do their fair share of making a person look good. The admiring glances you get when you wear Armani are from people who know real, timeless style when they see it.
