Cazal Legends History
CAZAL is a legendary cult eyewear firm created by Austrian Carl Zalloni (CArl ZALloni) in 1979. Little did he imagine though that not long after his first creation, his brand would be synonymous with hip-hop, rap and break-dance. “Made in Germany” tag on sunglasses that we inevitably relate to New York boroughs like Harlem or the Bronx.
It was not until Darry McDaniels from Run-DMC was seen wearing the 607 model (one of the first pairs produced by Zalloni) around 1982 that Cazal’s name started to enjoy huge success among the hip-hop community in the States. In fact, it is said that to some extent Zalloni was one of the creators of this movement’s singular look.
Thus, CAZAL Legends have absolute cult status easily recognizable by hip-hop style of the 80s which is still up to date.
