if the more advanced sunglasses are starting to look like serious design statements, that is because they are: with the latest designs, aerodynamics, fit and comfort, the strength-to-lightness ratio, anti-fogging coatings, venting, lens properties, and protection against flying debris even to ballistic standards are all among possible characteristics, leading to an aesthetic that is more tomorrow’s world than yesteryear vintage.

the sunglasses industry has become frantic with research and development, with a new frame taking up to one year of lab work, lenses anything up to three years, but with any new idea filtering down into the mainstream within five years, according to Pierre Burgelin, international sales director for the French brand Julbo.
