Between illegal substances handed out like they were candy and bonds traded like they were junk, through the prism of time, the 80s seem completely awesome. Put that prism on your face, with vintage Cazal sunglasses, now at Bodega.
Created by German Carl Zalloni in 1975, these uniquely extravagant shades first hit with the b-boy crowd, then reached the absolute crest of cool in the mid-80s, when they simultaneously adorned the faces of both Run DMC and Harry Caray (Mark Grace, why you buggin'?). Bodega's stock hails straight from the Reagan Era, and includes both the red-and-silver upgraded, Aviator styled 221's and the mahogany'd out 326's -- a tortoise-shell style that'll make you look like a cross between a PhD candidate and the dude who supplies him with the stuff that calms his clever ass down. The unholy grail's the fully tricked out, nearly-Kurt-Rambis-goggle-esque blue and white 857's: so intensely limited, you must request to see them, at which point you'll be blinded by their beauty, and the fact that you don't own sunglasses yet.
If you're looking for the nouveau-old, Karmaloop's got Cazal's recently dropped retro-vintage line, featuring five extremely limited editions -- between rehab and recession, maybe 80s 2.0 is a safer bet.
