Chanel Frames | Chanel Spectacles

The famous couturier Gabrielle ‘Coco’ Chanel is the founder of the French fashion house Chanel. The company started up in 1909 and has ever since been the leading brand in fashionable clothing, accessories, perfumery and cosmetics.

Gabrielle’s elegant and classic designs were adorned and admired by a majority of people and became the basics to their wardrobes. Her astounding accessories, including the uniquely designed Chanel spectacles, are now celebrated and appreciated all over the world. Several high profile celebrities brought Chanel’s produce to fame. Marilyn Monroe passionately supported the perfumery and appeared in advertisements with her “splashing herself with Chanel No. 5”. Other celebrities promoting Chanel products, were; Nicole Kidman, Keira Knightley, Catherine Deneuve and Audrey Tautou.

The first few Chanel frames stores to open were in Paris. The designs and production of the clothing were heavily affected by World War One and were hence made to be simplistic, durable and warm. With the growth of the successful company, Gabrielle began to expand her expertise into accessories and other fashionable items. One fashion accessory that has truly made a difference to the world was her eyewear collection.

Keeping her simplistic approach to design, she created what is now some of the most elegant and attractive Chanel varifocals and sunglasses lines. Most of them embellished with the reverted C’s on the sides, the beauty of the frames are undoubtedly impressive. The frames are strong, durable, suited to all occasions of the day and are perfect for anyone to wear.
