Control pays tribute to the history of aviator sunglasses. Aviators were designed to protect pilots’ eyes from glare in the late 30s, which gave the shape its name. Mystic Vintage revisits the aviator with a 70s aesthetics approach, paying attention to its military roots and issuing a lightning bolt monogram to compliment the metal surface.
Control features different lines from aviation movies which are subtly engraved on its right temples. On the black edition it says “I’m not a stuntman, I’m a flier” from the cult classic movie, Spirit of St Louis. The other lines are from movies The Aviator and Top Gun, “I feel like a little adventure” and “I feel the need, the need for speed”, on the cream and tortoise shell edition respectively.
