The classic brand, made famous by its creator, the sultry and stylish Coco Chanel, has never gone out of fashion. In fact, Chanel sunglasses are now more popular than ever, thanks in part to the slew of celebrities who are frequently photographed wearing the classic shades. The Chanel brand has been present since 1914, when Coco opened two small boutiques in France. As the years passed, the Chanel brand became synonymous with style and quality, and it brought us such fashion classics as the little black dress, the quilted handbag, the Chanel suit, and the famous line of perfumes.
The Ultimate Fashion AccessoryAlthough Chanel has manufactured a wide range of sunglasses over the years, the basic style associated with the brand remains the same. The Chanel look is both classic and dramatic. Sunglasses tend to be black (both the frame and the lenses), with large lenses accompanied with silver hardware. Of course, all feature the distinctive Chanel logo.
Some styles are more glamorous--having diamonte logos, some with different coloured lenses and frames--but a pair of Chanel sunglasses are always recognisable by their sheer style and quality.
This season, oversized sunglasses have been very much in fashion, and Chanel has found itself once again leading the way with a selection of styles which are up to the minute while still retaining the classic and elegant feel first worn by Coco Chanel herself. The glasses look great worn with that other Chanel standby, the little black dress, or Audrey Hepburn style, with black Capri pants and a simple sweater.
All of our Chanel frames come with a Chanel hard case, Chanel cleaning cloth and Chanel draw string case.
