Christian Dior Glasses
The Story Behind The Brand
The French designer was born in Normandy, 1905. He had a passion was for fashion and the arts. During the World War II, Dior dressed for military wives and other government spouses. He wanted to preserve the French fashion industry for economic and artistic reasons. His designs revolutionised post-war fashion. In 1946, he started his haute couture empire, House of Dior. Christian Dior Couture stayed away from restricting, boxy designs that hid a woman’s shape.
Instead, fashion house created beautiful flowing garments that enhanced a woman’s curvaceous form. This fashion reform became historically recognised as the ‘new look’. The brand became well known for its haute couture and beautiful luxurious creations since the empire launch. It also expanded into menswear, perfumery, accessories, jewellery and cosmetics. Like its haute couture collections, the eyewear collection follows suit.
Most of the brand’s models have a vintage yet glamorous appearance. The optical collection offers a wide range of frame settings. Whether you like chunky full rimmed frames or sleek semi-rimless frames, there’s a perfect pair for you. The majority of frames for men and women have a rectangle frame shape. Not only is this a classic shape, it’s also a shape that suits all. If you prefer other vintage shapes, the latest designs take your style into consideration; offering a range of frame styles from aviator and square, to cat eye.
