Innovation and Technology: Meet the Newest and the Timeless Dior Collections

Posted on the 17 June 2015 by Opticalh @OpticalH


How it all started…

The beginning of one of the most renowned and exclusive fashion houses took place when fashion designer Christian Dior was born in a small village in France in 1905.

In 1935, he began his career as a professional fashion designer. But with his mother’s and brother’s deaths, he was temporarily separated from his true passion. During the Second World War, Christian Dior served in the military but he finally moved back to France again in 1941.

At first, his designs were not supported by the audience because of his exaggerated style and the expensive materials he used in the production process. However, his feminine designs soon earned the audience’s support, especially from customers fond of the excess.

Later, John Galliano’s vision revolutionised the legendary Parisian house, one of the finest couture label that has created 60 years of extravagance and glamour.

Dior eyewear is known for its high-quality craftsmanship. Dior sunglasses and eyeglasses are crafted from the most innovative and best raw materials. Their results are exclusive creations that guarantee contemporary elegance.

New collections

Dior So Real, the futuristic aviator style

Dior So Real design rewrites the rules of the timeless aviator style introducing round shapes.

A destructured pantos shape and semi-mirrored lenses make these unisex sunglasses so appealing. Their single bridge gives these chic spectacles a very futuristic look. Every model comes with an original color-pop (blue, green, yellow…) set of nose pads.

Dior Technologic, a futuristic reflection

Another extremely bold and perhaps more daring design is the Dior Technologic model, made of the most cutting-edge materials to get the result of a very exclusive style, with futuristic features.

These unisex aviator sunglasses feature a very thin metallic frame that goes from side to side of the s face, connecting both edges of their lenses, getting the technologic and timeless touch that defines this model.

The same as with Dior So Real, Dior Technologic mirrored lenses are key to this patternBut in this case they are ultraflat lenses, an impressive style choice that definitely provides the final touch to this design.
