Every accessory has it’s don, the public face of it’s devoted collector/consumer community: jewelry has Ben Baller, watches have Ben Clymer, and vintage shades, well, vintages shades have Corey Shapiro and his Vintage Frames Company.

No one else has spent 2013 spreading the eyewear gospel like Corey Shapiro and you could spend half-a-day listing off his celebrity clientele and collaboration partners. But instead of doing that, take a look at Corey’s picks for the Top 10 iconic frames that made 2013 the year of the Sunglasses.

1. Céline Gold Chain

Rick Ross and will.i.am‘s apparent go-to pair of frame, the Celine Gold Chain sunglasses are a power-move on their own, but even more powerful a move when you pair them with a matching Celine gold cuban link chain around you neck.

2. Cazal 616

Spike Lee, Meek Mill, Diddy, Rick Ross again, the list of fans goes on, Cazal is a classic.

3. Ultra Goliath II
