CHANEL PRESENTS SUMMER 2022 EYEWEAR COLLECTION
The CHANEL Summer 2022 Eyewear collection brings together three themes: 90s-inspired shields, sunglasses punctuated with charms and sparkling frames with a glamorous spirit, plus a series of new timeless optical frames.
In the spirit of the Spring-Summer 2022 Ready-to-Wear show, CHANEL reinterprets a sunglasses frame symbolic of the 1990s: the shield, available this season in two graphic versions with masculine/feminine accents. These designs come in black acetate or two-tone black and white, navy blue and fuchsia or emerald green. Each one is adorned with wide temples, enhanced by quilting punctuated with mini double Cs or an oversize double C. All details that render these sunglasses a veritable fashion accessory.
“Charms” also feature on a line of sunglasses and opticals. Whether worn singular or as a trio, a camellia, pearl, heart and hexagon inspired by the stopper of the CHANEL N°5 perfume bottle adorn the temples like a playful signature. Three acetate opticals and three pairs of sunglasses make up this line: round, wide square and cat eye for the first, graphic butterfly, cat eye and oversized square for the second. All adopt the classic colours of black, tortoiseshell, navy and burgundy.
A third line includes four pairs of sunglasses in oval, rectangular, aviator and shield shapes in black and burgundy, brown khaki or deep green acetate imbued with a subtle sparkle. Two double Cs combining strass and metal are overlaid on the temples of the oval and rectangular designs, while the temples of the aviator and shield designs feature a single double C in metal, set on a square of micro-strass. The same colours, plus a tortoiseshell, are used for the pantos and round optical frames.
A variation on the metal glasses completes the Summer 2022 collection. Devoted to the theme of light, they focus on delicate lines of strass: one covers the bridge of an aviator, available in two sizes; another surrounds the lenses of a graphic square or rounded frame, available as both sunglasses and opticals.
In parallel, CHANEL is unveiling new optical frames with blue-light lenses, in timeless shapes and colours. Imagined as a wardrobe of essentials, they feature neat, easy-to-wear lines with a discreet signature. The chromatic range illuminates every skin tone; an aviator and a round frame come in burgundy, honey, amber, black, light or dark tortoiseshell acetate, while another round frame is highlighted by pale gold, marron glacé, silver, black or ruthenium metal. The designs are available in three different sizes to suit all faces and styles.
These glasses will be available in boutiques from March, and from April for the frames embellished with charms.
