There’s always one special event that everyone looks forward to, not only to get an exclusive look at a top designer’s latest collection, but to mark the beginning of yet another beautiful spring. Our annual CHANEL eyewear event signals the start of a fabulous new season, and as always, we had a wonderful time on the 13th checking out the brand’s latest colors, temple designs, and elegant silhouettes.
The most popular frame at the event was CHANEL CH3234 eyeglasses in color 714, tortoise, a classic rectangular design with a metallic CC logo inlaid into the temples. This style is also available in red and black. Styles like this one are always well-received, as the color and shape are quite flattering on most faces, and the thin acetate rims offer a sophisticated look without the overwhelming design that chunky geek-chic frames tend to have.
Also a big hit was the Camellia frame, style CH3255, which is new for spring/summer 2013. This square-shaped frame has a feminine touch with the pretty camellia that has become a signature of CHANEL’s eyewear line lately, with last season’s ad campaign centered around Linda Evangelista and her white flower. The 3255 is available in the above green, as well as blue, tortoise, brown, and black.
Last year’s spring lambskin leather temples maintained its popularity this season as well.
