Cover Adam Driver as Maurizio Gucci (Photo: Instagram @houseofgucci)

Ever since the stills from ‘House of Gucci’ came out, we’ve had our eye on Adam Driver’s aviator glasses, and here are the pieces you can shop if you want to recreate his look

Aviator glasses aren’t new, but they’re back in a big way this year. Developed in 1939 for military wear—specifically for fighter pilots to wear under their helmets—the style became commercially popular and were a hit in the ’50s, ’70s and ’80s.
 
Adam Driver sporting aviator eyeglasses in House of Gucci has not only transformed him into Maurizio Gucci—the Italian fashion house’s boss during the ’70s—but also made the actor look so cool that we want a pair, stat.

Ray-Ban

This is the brand responsible for the very first aviators, and Ray-Ban’s still producing them today. We like this pair with the gold frame accented by tortoiseshell, although these glasses come in other finishes too.

Gucci

These Gucci acetate glasses are the closest match to what Driver is wearing in the film. Simple, thick black frames have a retro feel to them and will suit just about everyone.

Dunhill

For those with more futuristic tastes, this silver rectangular take on aviators from Dunhill will appeal. Made from titanium, these are light and durable for everyday wear.

Montblanc

Perhaps you prefer a more rounded frame, in which case these Montblanc glasses are a better match. With design adjustments, the aviator can be adapted to meet different preferences.

Cartier

Go for gold with these similarly rounded frames. The slight teardrop shape is more reminiscent of the traditional aviator design, and these glasses also incorporate screws similar to those on Cartier’s Santos timepieces.

Fendi

Fendi does a totally modern iteration of the aviator, which feature a single (rather than a double) bar across the nose bridge, creating negative space. This is further emphasised with half transparent frames.
