MARIA Grazia Chiuri, artistic director of Dior and veteran designer of fashion accessories, has unveiled an ultra-desirable new eyewear line as part of her AW21 collection for the storied French House.
Dipping into the House archives with a particular focus on the 1970s – a recurrent theme in Chiuri’s collections for Dior – the new Dior Signature sunglasses line is defined by clever referencing and unparalleled craftsmanship.
Each frame’s acetate temples are adorned with two metal lines highlighting the glittering Christian Dior logo and elegantly evoking the iconic Dior Book Tote bag – the beloved model first introduced by Chuiri as part of the brand’s SS18 collection.
In the video below, discover more about the extraordinary savoir-faire behind the new Dior Signature sunglasses line, from the design to each model’s careful assembly by hand.
