Yet another use for leather: Gucci sunglasses. The luxury company's newest addition to its stable of eyewear is this 1970s-inspired aviator in square and drop-shaped models—made modern by covering the frames in leather. Available in tan, chocolate brown, blue, and black, the shades will be available November 10th, priced at $495 each.
