What are Steampunk Sunglasses?
The steampunk sunglasses are quite distinct from the majority of the sunglasses, indeed their style, color and shape differ enormously from the majority of the glasses. They take their inspiration from the 20th century, when sunglasses became fashionable.
We find in archive photos men wearing sunglasses from 1930, it is during this year that these glasses became extremely popular. However, they did not appear during this period but during the 15th century in China, where Chinese craftsmen made for the first time glasses that softened the impact of UV on the eyes.
At the time of the Victorian time it thus existed many models of sunglasses, although little carried during this time, one noted a strong development of the models and forms in the sunglasses.
At that time the sunglasses were generally round, then during the 19th century, the oval, rectangular glasses then in the shape of diamond this succeeded one another. The steampunk glasses draw their inspirations from these models, a little vintage, but delivering a great dose of class and confidence.

Do steampunk sunglasses look goods and still up-to-date?
As we have seen, most of the products in our collection of steampunk sunglasses are inspired by the models of the 19th century, the Victorian era par excellence, the question we must ask ourselves is: are these glasses still relevant or not?
The answer is yes, indeed the style affixed on this type of glasses is a vintage style, dandy and refined, a style increasingly sought after in recent years, and for good reason, whether for everyday life or costume events, sunglasses are excellent accessories that will bring out your confidence and beauty.
The steampunk glasses are therefore from a Victorian heritage, however they have been updated to respect the codes of the 21st century.
Steampunk Sunglasses for men and women, what are the differences?
There are a lot of differences between men's steampunk sunglasses and women's frames. Commonly, men's sunglasses are more rectangular or square in shape than women's. The materials used are often metal or acetate. In terms of lenses, men are fitted with gradient lenses or mirrored lenses that reflect a manly image. Women's sunglasses generally have round lenses and wider shapes to cover the eyes, their contours and sometimes even the top of the face (these models are called mask glasses). Regarding the lenses, for women, we find the gradient lenses that allow to protect from the sun but also to see his phone or read his book in the sun.
