The Rio is another classic among numerous iconic styles created by Oliver Goldsmith. It came from the early‘80s and was named after the colorful carnival city itself. Extremely stylish, with angled corners, a flat brow line, and bridge cutaway, the Rio is a modern interpretation of the classic aviator. This style was made famous by Princess Diana who was seen wearing a pair of gold mirrored lenses whilst on a skiing holiday in the 1980’s. Designed in London and handcrafted in Italy, these great shades are made using the finest cotton acetate and fitted with premium quality UVA/UVB lenses for dependable sun protection.
