8 SHADE ICONS FROM 90'S FILM

OCTOBER 12, 2019 / DC

NEW YORK, America  It was long and tough but we finally managed to narrow down our 8 ultimate favourite Shade Icons from 90's film.

 

From coloured lenses to oval-shaped frames, we've rounded them up and paired them with their contemporaries available online today.

 

01

LÉON MONTANA

LEON THE PROFESSIONAL

1994

Nothing says killer shades quite like the perfect circles upon Léon Montana's pretty hitman face. 

We suggest trying the Madison by Komono here at Shade Files if you're moving over to the dark side.

02

CLUELESS

1995

Strike a semi-incest pose with these marbled acetate cats-eye babies.

 

You might not know how to drive but with shades like these who cares?

 

The closest match we found were the Lulu Giraffe by Kimono at Shadefiles.com.au

03

CASPER

1995

Dear lord how did we ever miss the most stylish scene of this ghost classic? 

Casper was head over heals for Kat and with shades like these I wouldn't blame the poor thing.

The ghostliest thing we found were the devilish Star Gazers by Emma Mulholland X Pared at Paredeyewear.com 

04

PULP FICTION

1994

Who you calling Marsellus? And where did you find these perfectly round shades?

For a perfectly stylised 90's round metal frame, try these babies from Le Specs Luxe at Lespecs.com

ROMY WHITE AND MICHELE WEINBER

ROMY AND MICHELES HIGHSCHOOL REUNION

1997

Style, glamour, success, money... OK two of these were true for Romy White and Michele Weinber of this 90's cult classmate classic...

Romy and Michele dish up more than just a few good lines to forever quote at dinner parties, like these fab slimline black shades, most similar to the Devon by Shevoke at Shadefiles.com.au 

06

RAOUL DUKE

FEAR AND LOATHING IN LAS VEGAS

1998

The shades every summer surfer is searching for; the Fear and Loathing orange lens sunglasses. 

Complete the look with Uncle Graham's white bucket and Aunt Charl's cigarette extender.

We found an affordably chic pair over at

07

BILLBOARD DAD

1998

So god damn cute they look like we squished them in photoshop.

The coloured lens to 90's fashion is what Mary-Kate is to Ashley; inseparable and slightly questionable. 

The internet is fluttered with cheap knock-offs so why not try these to be safe:Doris by Roberi Fraud at Roberiandfraud.com 

08

CRY BABY

1990

Such beauty, such form and perfect hair.

Wade 'Cry Baby' Walker had everyone guessing: Where did you steal those sweet sweet shades?

Well we have found an almost 1:1 version right here, try the Robotnik by Monokel Eyewear from Shadefiles.com.au 

What's there to cry about Wade?  / Source: Courtesy
