MADE IN GERMANY IN THE 1980S BY EYEWEAR DESIGNER, "CAZAL." THESE FRAMES HAVE A PEARL-ESQUE FEEL TO THEM IN THEIR RECTANGULAR SHAPE PAIRED WITH LIGHT BLUE LENSES.

THEIR FOCUS ON QUALITY IS KEY, WITH EVERY PAIR GOING THROUGH 35 DIFFERENT PROCESSES AND EVERY HINGE UNDERGOING 50,000 DIFFERENT MOTIONS TO ENSURE QUALITY AND DURABILITY SINCE THE VERY BEGINNING.

CAZAL WAS FIRST CREATED IN 1979 BY AUSTRIAN CARI ZALLONI, WHO SAW HIS FRAMES DISTRIBUTED FIRST IN GERMANY. DESPITE HIS EARLY DESIGNS BEING VERY STYLISH AND BOASTING HIGH QUALITY MATERIALS, THEY REMAINED A LONG WAY FROM THE GLOBAL MAINSTREAM.

THINGS STARTED TO CHANGE IN THE EARLY 80’S HOWEVER, AS THE ICONIC 607S WERE PICKED UP BY MORE AND MORE DISTRIBUTORS ACROSS EUROPE AND FURTHER AFIELD. ONCE DARRYL MCDANIELS OF RUN D.M.C WAS SEEN ROCKING A PAIR OF 607S, THE US MARKET BEGAN TO CLAMOUR FOR THEM, AND POPULARITY SOARED ALL OVER AMERICA.

CAZAL SPECS BECAME AN INSTANT HIT IN AMERICA, WHERE EYEWEAR WAS STARTING TO BE USED FOR FASHION RATHER THAN FOR A PURELY FUNCTIONAL BASIS FOR THE FIRST TIME EVER. [1980S]
