Southern California-Style Frames Seen on the Streets of Hollywood
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.
Cruising around Hollywood in your '56 T-Bird, or standing in line to buy a ticket at your local cinema, if you are wearing Capistranos shades it is not unlikely that someone will stop and ask for your autograph. Select the tint color of your choice, and let the mating- games begin!
