David Gandy X Aspinal Collaboration
FINLAY London has collaborated with Aspinal of London and David Gandy to create a bespoke pair of square aviators as part of Aspinal's Aerodrome collection of travel accessories.
Aspinal of London has joined forces with iconic British supermodel, David Gandy, to launch an exclusive design collaboration capsule that takes its inspiration from the skies of Great Britain's heroic aviatic history. The Aerodrome Collaboration sees David's well-known sense of style meet Aspinal's trademark quality and craftsmanship across a collection of gentleman's accessories, including backpacks, business bags and travel accessories, taking creative inspiration from that knight of the skies: The legendary Spitfire.
We have created two pairs of Aerodrome Aviators for the capsule collection inspired by the quintessential style worn by WWII fighter pilots.
The square lenses round-off at the edges, while a distinctive top bar sits proudly on the face of the design and slender arms with tortoiseshell temple tips ensure the frames sit comfortably all day.
Meticulously designed to present a refined twist on a classic aesthetic, they are hand-crafted in Italy from fine quality, gold-brushed metal or brushed silver and Mazzucchelli acetate, combined with Carl Zeiss polarised lenses, to provide 100% UVA/B protection.
Sunglasses are protected with the sublimely smooth Italian calf leather sunglasses case; the envelope shape is lined in soft espresso suede. You can even make your case bespoke by personalising with up to four initials above the signature Aerodrome rivet. To order and for more on the collection, click here.
