the world's most iconic sunglasses

 

From the outset it was clear to Steve Cranie that there was a large demand for round John Lennon style sunglasses but Steve struggled to find good quality products he could sell at affordable prices. The John Lennon Sunglasses Collection offers a wide range high quality round shades. The Classic designs come in two sizes and in a choice of twelve lens and frame colour combinations. Here, Digger talks to Steve at JohnLennonSunglasses.com.

Digger: Please tell us about the background to johnlennonsunglasses.com and how and why you formed this enterprise.

Steve: We started up a UK based online sunglasses business many years ago motivated by the lack of choice of affordable good quality sunglasses in a market dominated by premium designer sunglasses brands. From the outset it was clear that there was a large demand for round John Lennon style sunglasses but we struggled to find good quality products we could sell at affordable prices. We were limited to either low quality products, usually sold through costume suppliers, or very expensive high end designer products. Having a passion for such sunglasses ourselves we decided to do something about it and so JohnLennonSunglasses.com was born. All our products are purchased exclusively by us directly from our supplier and manufactured to our own specification. This has allowed us to produce a high quality product whilst keeping our prices affordable.

Digger: What do you think is the enduring appeal of these glasses?

Steve: Sunglasses formed by two circular lenses mounted in a wire frame were originally known as "Teashades". They first became popular in the 1960's inspired by Lennon's fondness for them, rockers such as Mick Jagger and Jerry Garcia also wore them in that era. Their enduring appeal has been driven by prominent members of the music business who continue to wear them to this day. Heavy Metal God Ozzy Osbourne still wears these circular shades, as does Liam Gallagher of Oasis who first wore them in the famous Wonderwall video and more recently at the Brit Awards in 2010 when he infamously threw his award into the audience. The glasses worn by Seraph in the Matrix Reloaded are Teashades. And most recently, Mary-Kate Olsen and "Gossip Girl" Taylor Momsen have revived the fashion industry's interest in them by frequently wearing classic John Lennon sunglasses.
