Jacqueline Kennedy is one of the world’s most famous style icons, and no single look was more famous than her oversized sunglasses. Often worn as a fashion statement even when sunglasses weren’t necessary, the larger lens size rose out of necessity. Jackie had wide set eyes, so she had her sunglasses custom made to be wider at the temple, at a cost of about $1,000 a pair. She would have her favorite symbol—the Greek Key—placed on all of them.
These replica sunglasses are of a higher quality than those Jackie would have worn, the lenses provide 100% UV 400 protection. Jackie’s signature Greek Key detail, a symbol of eternal life, is mortised into the arm so it will not snag, and is bolted through the arm rather than glued.
