A channel of self-expression for the contemporary woman, Dior sunglasses exude a bold elegance balanced with the House's timeless elegance.
Creative Director Maria Grazia Chiuri's eyewear collections are designed to encourage freedom of expression in contemporary women. Designer sunglasses to complement sophisticated styles as well as casual outfits, there is a pair to fit every face shape. Expression is further encouraged by the variety of shapes and styles from which to choose. From the bold, oversized women's sunglasses, statement styles designed to empower a gaze, to the classically elegant butterfly models, a more mellow means to express passion. Rectangular and square women's sunglasses are complementary to a myriad of looks, while retro feels come from designs paying homage to vintage 70s sunglasses. Women's sunglasses from these collections also extend to chic visors, offering a sporty look for summer outfits. All of these elegant creations are offered in various colors: red, pink, blue, ivory or transparent models bring graphic originality for spring or summer. Black, brown tortoiseshell effect, silver and gold all exude a classic, timeless style for eyewear. The choice continues for expressive women. Designer sunglasses from Maria Grazia Chiuri's collections have frames of great contrast, from ultra-thin to thick, made in metal or acetate, epitomizing the traditional and exceptional savoir-faire of the Christian Dior workshops. Lenses come in plain, mirror-effect or shaded variations, with some even compatible with corrective lenses for increased visual comfort for women. Designer sunglasses, however much emphasis is put on style, still need to function as products to protect the eyes. Every House pair safeguards the eyes against the harmful effects of UVA and UVB, thanks to effective filters with various category ratings. Category 1 filters are most suitable for low light levels common to the winter months. Category 2 filters are more general, corresponding to medium luminosity. Category 3 is ideal for the high-light levels of summer, the styles best suited to the beach or the poolside. Paying homage to the founder of the House while echoing its emblematic line of leather goods, each style of sunglasses boasts a 'Dior', 'Christian Dior', 'CD' or 'Christian Dior Paris' signature. Effortlessly paring with the House's clothing and accessory lines, each pair of these sunglasses is presented in an elegant protective case.
