At first glance, you might mistake Pacifico Optical’s Blair Sunglasses ($120) as being of Italian origin. That supposition can be understood as the homegrown Australians on Bondi Beach use cellulose acetate from Italian supplier Mazzucchelli to handcraft the frames. At the corners, the 5-joint nickel silver rivet hinges are also of high-quality Italian engineering. The rather vintage unisex D shape of the frames along with the Blair’s keyhole nose bridge hearken back to the mid 20th Century’s love affair with the aviator silhouette.
Pacifico Optical uses Carl Zeiss lenses for their proven lightweight, shatterproof nature. They are given UV6 400 protection with a multilayer anti-reflective coating inside and a scratch-resistant hard-coat on the outside. A microfiber polishing cloth and maintenance/cleaning kit comes along with the carrying case of each pair of these classic and classy shades. The Pacifico Optical Blair Sunglasses come in a crowd-pleasing multitude of colorways for any style or occasion in the sun.
