Karl Lagerfeld Bet on the Baroque

Coco Chanel makes history even without being present: an important part of this fashion designer’s life has inspired the new collection of designer sunglasses. The person in charge is Karl Lagerfeld, who revisited in the lush designs an era in which all the brilliance was little: the Baroque. Nowadays, where the “clean” reigns, the composition in sunglassesauthored by Karl Lagerfeld gets even more prominent.

Coco Chanel makes history even without being present: an important part of this fashion designer‘s life has inspired the new collection of designer sunglasses. The person in charge is Karl Lagerfeld, who revisited in the lush designs an era in which all the brilliance was little: the Baroque. Nowadays, where the “clean” reigns, the composition in sunglasses authored by Karl Lagerfeld gets even more prominent.

The period in question can be found in the details: the stems are decorated in gold, well in the style of the interiors of churches built in this period so vast and rich in its cultural heritage. For Karl Lagerfeld, the biggest inspiration was the jewelry, which is not surprising: for some time the sunglasses have been increasing its value as an accessory in the fashion market. The frame colors also resemble floating dress fabrics: the Bijou Collection comes in shades of pink, red, lilac, blue and black. For each color, a decoration: stronger tones with thicker golden stems, more delicate colors, like lilac, with corresponding stems.

The acetate frames of the new Chanel sunglasses collection give the modern touch and perfect for those looking for a striking style model. The Wayfarer model speaks for itself.

The partnership Karl Lagerfeld and Chanel comes from 1983, when the stylist took over the creative direction of the prèt-a-porter collection. His role in the maison is considered important, as he is more concerned with realizing the ideas of founder Coco Chanel than imposing his own pen on designs.
