Take flight with Chanel’s new eyewear creations with aerospace-inspired styles
For the Chanel Fall 2017 Eyewear ad campaign, Karl Lagerfeld opted to take black and white photographs of the Dutch model Luna Bijl in an industrial-inspired metallic décor. The looks were first seen in the Fall 2017 Ready-to-Wear collection, spotted on the runway at the CHANEL AIRSPACE show.
Revisited classics, new shapes and unexpected lines define the season’s frames, which draw on a mix of styles from retro and futuristic to rock and faux-innocent. Sheathed in iridescent fabric, double-bridged neo-aviators hit the sweet spot between masculine and feminine, their arms entwined in a black nylon thread. Optical frames are minimalist, encircled simply with metal. A tweed motif embellishes the metal arms of bold and feminine square-shaped XL optical frames and crops up on the upper bridge of perfectly round, assertive sunglasses. A butterfly mask plays on duality by pairing optical lenses with mirrored clip-on sunglasses.
The Chanel Fall 2017 Eyewear campaign tells a story of modern elegance that merges seamlessly with any woman’s everyday life and style.
