The Mustang

Renauld's best-known sunglass is the Mustang. Immortalized in the opening scenes of 'The Italian Job' (1969). They were actually manufactured between 1964 and 1969 and are extremely rare today. They were made with gold, silver, white and aluminium frames and were notoriously fragile, probably explaining their scarcity. Not surprisingly, they are much coveted and exceptionally expensive.

The first photographs here are from the Renauld Collection, and below, further images come from a collector in Scotland, (note the pristine condition and a welcome sight of the original box they came in).
