John Galliano, one of the most innovative and eclectic designers in the world and a major force behind the house of Dior as well as his own collections, now draws upon his Spanish heritage to present his first sunglass series this season.

Combining a fiery hot Flamenco vibe with the rebellious cinematic spirit of the 1960s, the resulting story explodes with fragments of exotic decadence and renegade personality.

John Galliano says: "I wanted to fuse function and high fashion and to morph faces and frames to create the ultimate sunglass collection, and to blend old school glamour with high-tech romance."

And that he has done, with styles for women such as Misfit in black, Muse in gold, Headliner in violet with silver, Pin-Up in three tone orange, and Pussy Cat in white, tiger or zebra, all summoning the true bombshells and ’60s goddesses such as Ann-Margret, Ursula Andress, and Honor Blackman.

For men, Galliano pays homage to the rebels with and without causes-the shades of Brando, Dean and the Rat Pack-with Macho in Havana and cocoa, Masculine in mirror, Mystery in blue and crystal, and the metallic Rebel Man.

The entire series is designed to travel from Route 66 to the red carpet with minimal stretch, and from stud to rocker to icon with ease.

John Galliano continues: "Sunglasses are the ultimate accessory and alibi. They protect the private gaze," as evidenced in his male signature model-Beau Regard.

His partner is Les Biches, the vision of the feminine, mysterious doe-eyed Flamenco dancer. Made in Italy by the Marcolin Group, the collection uses innovative plastics, metal treatments and new lens technologies to inspire the Galliano story.
