Paul Smith is back in fashion with the vintage-inspired Alrick Sunglasses after dabbling in a few interesting projects that included releasing a boombox with LASONiC and camera cases for Leica.

The Alrick Sunglasses are a modernized take on classic aviator goggles. The design itself has a very retro feel that also incorporates a few contemporary and steampunk elements into it. The shades features classic round frames that boast a beautiful dark-gray lens. On either side of the arm are leather blinders that are detachable for those who prefer to go without them.

Paul Smith’s Alrick Sunglasses are a great take on vintage shades yet, the piece maintains a contemporary personality. This is casual elegance at its best. Stats for Steampunk Designer Goggles Trending: Older & Mild
