Birth of a new eyewear era,CAZAL
Flipping through the pages of hip hop’s history, CAZAL was first embraced and popularized by the trio Run-D.M.C.’s Darryl McDaniels. The trailblazer who defined the look of the 80s hip hop. He was especially fond of the legendary 607s sunglasses, one of the very first pairs ever released by CAZAL eyewear.
Other than McDaniels, the pioneers of west coast hip hop, the duo, Rodney-O, and Joe Cooley were often spotted wearing CAZAL 951s and 955s.
Not just the men, the women artists loved CAZAL just as much. CAZAL sunglasses were seen first in the music video “Wind It Up” by Gwen Stefani for her first single The Sweet Escape.
The rest, as they say, is history.
