If you watched Django Unchained (a Tarantino movie), you must have noticed Django’s sunglasses! They just look awesome and added this modern touch to his 19th-century look. That being said, according to Sharen Davis (stylist of the movie), this pair of sunglasses was made especially for this movie and actually inspired from Charles Bronson’s sunglasses in the White Buffalo (1977). It’s too bad it’s not available out there… Typically the kind of unique pairs you can find at Le Photon des Vosges (Marais in Paris).

From the uniquely imaginative mind of writer/producer/director Baz Luhrmann comes the new big screen adaptation of F. Scott Fitzgerald’s novel, The Great Gatsby. For those who don’t know the story, “The Great Gatsby” follows Fitzgerald-like, would-be writer Nick Carraway as he leaves the Midwest and comes to New York City in the spring of 1922, an era of loosening morals, glittering jazz and bootleg kings.
