This line of eyewear was not your basic, run of the mill, mass produced sunglass collection. It is so much more then that! This line was produced by Optyl in the '70s & '80s. Optyl is a super cool material invented by Wilhelm Anger from Austria. It's a resin based plastic and you will find many Optyl frames from the '70s and '80s will bear the made in Austria trademark. Optyl also made frames for Dior, Dunhill, Carrera and P.Picasso in the same era.
With the use of the miracle material Optyl combined with a '80s fashion style, the Playboy Eyewear collection is retro chic, made for the bold and beautifull.
Nowadays these sunglasses have become an iconic statement and both very hard to find, especially in new condition!!
