Dio(R)evolution sunglasses bringing a lucky charm
Presented at the ready-to-wear spring-summer 2017 show, this new pair of sunglasses offers a modern take on some of the house of Dior’s iconic codes.
The Dio(r)evolution sunglasses revisit the pilot shape with a frame composed of a resolutely contemporary mix of materials – acetate and metal, in a gold or silver finish. They look chic, are well made, and while designed mainly for the ladies, there is also a number that boys can pull off as well. In addition, the gray lenses ensure 100% UV protection.
In the middle of each shade is a single star, which plays in nicely with the recurring themes of this collection, which was related to astrology, horoscopes and the stars. Recalling the outline of a mask, a small star replaced over the gray lenses symbolizes one of Christian Dior’s lucky charms. Having been hugely superstitious the couturier always kept a number of talismanic objects in his pockets with a star being among them.
