New Dior icons (I): Dior Chromic
Let’s be honest: it’s going to be really difficult for any other model enjoy to the same colossal success as Dior So Real, but all Dior sunglasses are so chic and so special that no matter how many units they sell, Dior are always the shades to wear. And since Dior is launching some amazing models this season, we want to dedicate a post to each of them. Stay tuned to find out when they arrive at our store.
The brand defines Dior Chromic as “avant-garde femininity” and we couldn’t agree more. These shades are inspired by the Esprit Dior Tokyo 2015 fashion show, where Raf Simons presented his pre-fall collection for this year. He explained that part of his inspiration came from the free way of dressing in certain areas of Tokyo, so maybe the futuristic flair of these sunnies comes from boroughs like Shibuya or Shinjuku.
The temples in matt acetate combine perfectly with the metallic front and lenses as well as with the “pantos” shape. This name comes from the word pantoscopic, which means “wide view” or “seeing everything”. It refers to a particular shape that was very popular during the 1950s and 1960s: round/oval with a high hinge. The front of Dior Chromic is created from very fine gold-tone metal, underlined with metal lens rims.
These lenses guarantee 100% UV protection and you can choose between gold-blue, and silver-white models.
