SPRING-SUMMER 2021 EYEWEAR COLLECTION
Like the CHANEL Spring-Summer 2021 Ready-to-Wear show, the sunglasses in the collection are inspired by the world of cinema. From Hollywood to the New Wave, from black and white to camera flashes on the red carpets, these designs are writing the script for a season of contemporary glamour.
Seen at the show, one pair of sunglasses in metal revisits the cat eye style with a minimalist spirit. Intensely black, the lenses reveal a gold insert. A detail that is both discreet and sophisticated, reminiscent of Gabrielle Chanel’s taste for gold, which she would use in particular to illuminate the radical black of her creations.
Tweed, leather or denim… CHANEL’s glasses often come dressed in materials from the House’s Ready-to-Wear collections. This season, the sequins from the Spring-Summer 2021 Ready-to-Wear collection appear on two black acetate frames, in a nod to the flash bulbs on the red carpet. The temples of the first one, an XL square, are swathed in black micro-sequins revealing the letters “CHANEL” in silver metal. The second design, a butterfly frame with softened angles, is almost entirely covered with sequins and is decorated with a double C in gold metal at the start of the temples.
Finally, CHANEL’s black and white two-tone features on a square frame with rounded edges in black acetate hemmed in white and signed with the letters “CHANEL”. This graphic design is also available in negative, as a white version highlighted with black. Two other pairs of glasses complete this line: one with a black front, adorned with white temples, while the other, entirely black, is illuminated with white strass forming the name “CHANEL” along the temples. An elegant ode to cinema and its eternal magic.
The Spring-Summer 2021 eyewear collection will be available exclusively in CHANEL boutiques from March 2021.
