For this new collection, CHANEL presents three minimalist pairs of sunglasses with a masculine/feminine spirit: a cat eye, an aviator and a round frame in gold, silver, ruthenium or matt black metal. The purity of these designs is enhanced by metal inserts integrated into the glass, emphasising the curve of the cat eye and aviator frames and drawing two double Cs on the round design. A technical innovation, imperceptible to the touch, which subtly enhances the brown, light grey and anthracite tinted lenses.
Introduced with the Spring-Summer 2021 collection, CHANEL continues its sequin theme this fall on three sunglasses and two opticals.
A very feminine, large hexagonal frame in black or tortoiseshell acetate with a double C is embellished with micro-sequins. This sophisticated, textured material, shimmering or matt depending on the version, is also used on the top and the temples of sunglasses with a round or an oversized square frame, both in metal. The sparkle of the sequins reflects in the grey, green, brown or amber lenses.
Two optical designs complete this line. In harmony with the colours of the frames, micro-sequins adorn the temples of a hexagonal shape in gold, matt black or ruthenium metal, and a graphic square in black, grey tortoiseshell or brown acetate. Certain versions of these opticals come with UV and blue light blocking lenses.
Another Ready-to-Wear-inspired detail, the double C takes the form of a woven patch in autumnal tones. It appears on the temples of two pairs of sunglasses – a rectangular shield and a large oval frame in black, tortoiseshell or green acetate – as well as those of two optical frames – pantos and rectangular shaped – also in acetate. The CHANEL Fall 2021 Eyewear collection will be available in boutiques from June 2021.
