Almost no one will argue with me otherwise when I say this. Dior has been releasing the most desirable of sunglasses of late, from the So-Real to the Split. And after trying them on at the store the other day, I know why. They look chic, are well made and they come in a large enough range of colours/styles, and while designed mainly for the ladies, there are also a number that boys can pull off as well.
And today I’m adding to our list of desirables the new Dior(E)volution collection, presented during Dior’s Spring-Summer 2017 show under the auspices of new Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri. Aviator inspired, the frames are made of a blend of materials such as acetate and metal, before being finished in distinct hues in Gold or Silver.
In the middle of each shade is a single star, which plays in nicely with the recurring themes of this collection, which centred around astrology, horoscopes and the stars. And in case you didn’t know, it was also something the late Christian Dior was passionate about, with the star believed to be one of his lucky charms. And with these Dior(E)volution sunglasses, it might very well be your lucky charm too.
