Sunglasses Companies

Designer Sunglasses is the name given to sunglasses made by designer label companies such as Christian Dior, Chanel and Ray Ban. The look and models change from season to season. The 'in-model' for 2006 will be outdated by new models for 2007 driven by the high powered fashion business and market.

Because of the brand name associated with these sunglasses, the price paid for a pair is usually very high. This has created an illegal industry of replica 'knock off' or imitation designer label sunglasses, some being so professionally copied that even the original designers find it very hard to determine between the genuine pair and fake pair.

I had a therapist once) tell me that life moves in spirals. That what we thought was backtracking, sliding to places we’ve already been, feeling like we’re moving in reverse was actually progression. Moving always upward in a constant spiral, in which we may re-visit the same places, phenomena, but we ourselves have invariably changed. The guide books are here, the couch where I remember sitting once with a cup of coffee, leafing through in an almost naive panic, wondering why I hadn’t bothered to do any research before hand. Even getting from the airport to the hostel, what was one time a daunting, practically impossible task, yesterday was a simple matter of catching the light rail and flagging down a taxi.
