CAZAL Legends – a collection of CAZAL models created in the 80s. At a time when CAZAL fan Usher was just about starting to walk, Chief Designer Cari Zalloni gave the first rappers their look with his striking eyewear: a style that has defined the New York hip-hop scene to this day. 1982 saw the launch of the 607 – a design icon that gave CAZAL its world breakthrough.
The first fans affectionately called it “Cazzy”, now it’s known as “Run-DMC glasses”. It made massive acetate frames the style and status symbol of rappers and break-dancers. The bold design and extravagant shapes are uncompromising in their look and speak a language that is foreign to design-doubters. Insiders, on the other hand, understand the high-quality “made in Germany” eyewear as a statement of individuality and luxury.
Today you see CAZAL Legends as much in the Bronx as on glossy magazine covers. Musicians and stars wear them as an accessory – in films as well as in real life. From Jay Z and Rick Ross through Lady Gaga to Brad Pitt: they all adore the authentic unisex glasses. One thing is clear to them all: a CAZAL Legend is not only loyal to you, you have to be loyal to it! With each new edition of a CAZAL icon model CAZAL shows its fans that cult always stays cult and “authentic” vintage is always in fashion. A Legend never dies!
