The colorful mix of people and things to do make this part of town so irresistible. Venice is the perfect combination of Hollywood glamour, casual sportiness and individual creativity, just like the ultimate must-have amongst sunglasses - a trendy pair of aviators.
Initially worn by the legendary army pilots in the 40s and 50s, the thin metal frame with its rounded glass quickly became the it-piece of movie stars. Steve McQueen, Robert Redford, Tom Cruise, Brad Pitt, Daniel Craig - generations of the most coveted womanizers have worn aviators. But the laidback, aloof look is not only for men. Powerful women and style icons like Sarah Jessica Parker, Penelope Cruz, Angelina Jolie and Madonna prove that aviators are just as sexy and cool on ladies. When it comes to our Venice, you have the choice between a large version in L or a smaller one in S. The thin golden frame appears elegant and is a total eyecatcher. You also pick the glass color of your Kapten & Son sunglasses. You love the classic subtle look? Then go for black or green glass. The mirrored styles in blue or orange are more edgy and modern - you decide how you want to see the world.
