Foster Grant Celebrates Now + Then

As an ode to a whopping 85 years in the eyewear biz, Foster Grant has crafted a seriously chic collection of sunnies that truly signify the brand’s legendary roots. Believe it or not, Foster Grant’s rich history dates back to 1929, when Sam Foster introduced sunglasses to America by selling the very first pair on the Atlantic City boardwalk. Just a few decades later, in the 1960s, it catapulted to fame with its infamous and ever-present advertising campaign “Who’s That Behind Those Foster Grants?” showcasing iconic Hollywood celebs—it’s not surprising that soon after, other stars and peeps alike caught on, rocking frames as a fashion statement. Fast forward and Foster Grant shades still reign supreme. Just check out the sunglasses in its latest vintage-inspired line—from classic silhouettes, to traditional hues, to minimal yet eye-catching detailing, these sunnies are the perfect tribute to Foster Grant’s presence now and then.
