Southern California-Style Frames in Tortoiseshell and Gold!
Capistranos – Tortoiseshell with Gold Plated Temples
These honey colored tortoise shell oval frames, combined with gleaming gold plated temples are named after the 1940s hit song When the Swallows Come Back to Capistrano. In fact, these quintessential Southern California frames have a bird-like lightness to them, forming a curvy streamlined arc from the tortoise shell rims all the way to ball-tips of the stainless steel temples.
Capistranos were first seen on the faces of California girls as they roamed the streets of Hollywood Boulevard and shopped Rodeo Drive. If you find yourself cruising around Melrose Avenue in your '56 T-Bird, or standing in line to buy a ticket at your local cinema, wearing these gold and honey caramel tortoiseshell gems will likely cause strangers to stop and ask for your autograph. And Capistranos make striking sunglasses. Simply select the tint color of your choice, and let the mating-games begin! But beware the paparazzi!
