Dior Creates New Sunglasses Styles for Christmas Season

Dior Sunglasses are always been a great Christmas gift idea. Not only becuase Dior is a big brand name, but also because they are truly beautiful. Dior sunglasses also have good fitting, a bit conservative and a bit fashionable. Fashion is not something Dior cares about to follow. Dior is a huge brand that creates fashion. Yes, they rarely copy or follow other ideas, they stick to their own and eventually others pick up and go with. For example cat eye sunglasses. No one knows if they were the first to bring the cat eye sunglasses back from 50s to modern age, but they were the most consistent brand to keep these sunglasses going for so many years now. Same goes about geeky ophthalmic frames. Dior was the first to recover the style from 60’s  by putting the glasses on Gisele Bundchen in their 2008 ad.

So, you will never go wrong with buying Dior sunglasses as a gift for your lady. Your girlfriend, your mom, your business partner – anyone really. Any age and any style will pull off these Diors:

Roberto Cavalli – A Designer Who Is Inspired By Women

Roberto Cavalli is one of the makers of what we call Italian fashion. Excessive decorations with stones, prints, feathers and colorful patches is what makes Italian style. Roberto Cavalli spent over 50 years proving the world that a style should be consistent, but it does not have to be monotone.

When asked what inspires him, he gladly says “I am inspired by women”. Woman lover, woman mother or woman wife – he had them all and says that studied their psychology and body needs as if he studied science. This helped to develop ultra feminine style with accent on sexiness and aggressiveness. Hence is the animal prints that became signature for every collection.

In one of his interviews for NewStyle, Roberto elaborates that the best compliment he received for his designs was from a woman who said “I tried everything from Ives Saint Laurent to Chanel, but when put on your clothing realized that suddenly all men are looking at me. You changed my life”. He is inspired by women who are desired. While press and media is picking on minimalism and architectural designs in women fashion, Cavalli is not getting much appraisal from big Vogue and Elle. In fact there was only one interview with the designer for the past 10 years! He however is getting enough attention from such women, who keep coming back for clothes that make them sexy and beautiful.

When asked what makes his designs so true to his style he said “The secret lies in deep knowledge of women body proportions and fearless attitude to their femininity. I don’t change my designs in favor of monochrome, I use chic silks, reptile skins and furs. Anything that makes woman look like Goddess.” Goddess will not only wear dresses, but also accessorize to the max, Roberto Cavalli sunglasses became an attribute of a true fashionista.

His Goddess of two decades is Eva Cavalli, his wife who was able to tame the gypsy soul and create a family with playful designer. Roberto admires his wife. He says that the secret to their long marriage is that she is not just beautiful, she is a strong personality with similar life values and ideas. According to maestro, to keep a good men on a short leash for many years, beauty is not enough. Woman has to carry a mystery. So in styles, he does not like anything too short or too open. Super mini skirt or very open shirt will not make a woman sexy. What will is a mystery that she hides behind her leopard coat or snake skinny pants.

Roberto admits that his muse is Jennifer Lopez. A true Italian does not hide the fact that he was once madly in love with Latino legend. She inspired him on many new designs. Her love of her own body led him to create more designs for women of similar proportions.

Roberto Cavalli also has a men line. American Aerosmith lead singer Steve Tyler is one of the biggest admirers of Cavalli style. However there is not much for men other than a small selection of jeans and shirts. Roberto admits that it’s not his goal to create competitors among men by dressing them well.

Dior 2011 Collection – New Additions

Dior eyewear team must be the hardest working from all. This year they have released over 40 new styles in various categories: trendy, retro and classic. The company has taken a utility approach to release many models to appeal to people of different styles, ages and even budgets. We can’t pass on mentioning the color versatility of the brand. Some models come in as many as 6-7 colors such as Dior Paname or Dior Ladycat 1/S. We talked earlier about eyewear industry trends and how companies are not following two seasons Fall/Winter and Spring/Summer- they are releasing new models few at a time adding them to the year collection. This makes sense because glasses don’t have a season – you wear them all year long every day and sun is shining no matter what. In line with this strategy please, enjoy a few new additions to Dior 2011 eyewear collection:

Sunglasses Trends 2011

Following the overview of ophthalmic frame trends for 2011, we can’t wait to tell you what’s new for sunglasses. Unlike prescription glasses, that still in the bottom of mind are considered health items by many, sunglasses are all about fashion. General fashion trends are often passed on to sunglasses with each season. Sunglasses are also often worn by models during the runway shows. Here are some notable similarities for Spring 2011.

Cat Eye


Cat Eye is super big this season. There were few first movers last year testing the market. This year almost every fashion forward brand name has their version of cat eye. These shapes have a potential of becoming all time classic and we feel will stay current for the next 5 years at the very least. Presently you will find many variations of cat eye, more balanced and fitted for different face types. Some sunglasses models are even made with catty color to emphasize the idea – this for real fashionistas.

Dior Myladydior5/S Dior Panther 1/S Prada PR 19MS

 

Unisex Rocks


This year we noticed that there are much more unisex options than before. It is possible that the trend got influenced by slowing economy where ladies had to say no to many luxuries. Also, with continuous increase of woman joining men at work and putting on pant suits, more sunglasses are made to compliment this style.

Gucci 1951/S Prada PS 50MS Dior Havane/S

 

Printed Patterns


You already have a black pair of sunglasses, a tortoise and even white. Now is time to get something less conservative. Get printed pattern. Your favourite square or rectangular shape is still on, but with a stripy or animal print pattern it will look updated and so Spring 2011.

Gucci 3190/S Roberto Cavalli RC587S

 

Oversized Minimalism


Sunglasses have been getting bigger every year in the past few years. You hardly can even find narrow rectangular shapes and even those are kept mainly to fit prescription lenses. Anything fashion is now big. Big rounds, big squares, big aviators, big shields. What is notable this year is the minimal decor. Many models of 2011 are kept simple, with little decoration and narrow temples.

Gucci 3162/S Prada PR 17MS Dior Mitza 3/S

 

Something for Men – Heavy Bridge


Heavy bridge is big for men frames in 2011. This is probably one of distinguishing elements on homme-only frames. And even with unisex being so big this year, these frames won’t look good on many women, so men got something for themselves. Look for heavy bridge when shopping for men sunglasses this year.

Gucci Sunglasses Spring 2011 Collection

Following a very successful 2010 year, Gucci is continuing to do designs that are both suitable for many people and fashionable. In 2011 Gucci took a safe path in choosing colors. Black and their best seller Tortoise, make most of their collection color tone and will suit people of any skin and hair color. Logo design has not changed since last year, and bright gold or gunmetal silver is still a signature on most of the frames.

Here are some 2011 frames that you should have a look at before shopping for any other brand.

Cat EyeCat Eye Gucci 2891 and Gucci 3162. These are the only cat eye frames from Gucci this year. Again, Gucci tries to remain conservative catering to majority, but as a fashionable brand they did follow the 2011 cat eye mania and released their version of it, one metal and one plastic.

Gucci 2891/S Gucci 3162/S

Bold Square Shapes are dominant. We already see that ladies enjoy what was supposed to be men models, among them Gucci 1648, Gucci 1945, Gucci 1641 and Gucci 1943. These models come in a variety of colors and will look amazing on both guys and girls.

Gucci 1648/S Gucci 1945/S

Feminine Bold Squares. Of course, ladies first… so Gucci, understanding that ladies love big logos and wrapped around fitting, released these models to satisfy beauties that want latest 2011 square trend. Gucci 3170/S, Gucci 3170/N/S, Gucci 3169/S and Gucci 2892/S.

Gucci 3170/S Gucci 3170/N/S
Gucci 3169/S Gucci 2892/S

Bold Aviator. This is not a sweet, classic aviator any more. It is a military inspired, wide, thick aviator that is covering bigger part of your face. Gucci, along with Dior and Prada are setting this trend for 2011. If you want something new, here your go: Gucci 1639, Gucci 1944, Gucci 1566 and Gucci 1889.

Gucci 1639/S Gucci 1944/S
Gucci 1566/S Gucci 1889/S

Updated 2010 models include Gucci 3159, Gucci 3161, Gucci 3163, Gucci 3164. Last year Gucci totally rocked outselling big brand names such as Chanel. This year they are clearly set to win and instead of reinventing the wheel they updated a number of models without any trend following, just keeping their main colors and shapes that sold well.

The History of New Look From Dior

Christian Dior had an incredible intuition that led him to ultimate success. His first couture house opened in 1946, after the WWII. He was able to capitalize on a depressed mood of post war France and give women a new image. His friend back in childhood once said “The magic name consists of words God and Gold”.

The Parisian elite was simply stunned when the 90 models started to defile the runway decorated with pale gray and white stucco in the style of Louis XVI. Rumours of this collection  swell quickly throughout France. Christian Dior at the time was an ordinary tailor in a model  house Lucien Lelong.

Sculpted shoulders,  thin waist, rounded hips, developing long skirts, a veil that hides your eyes, gloves and a light step – conveyed the image of the femininity, which was lacking during the war. Almighty editor in chief of Harper’s Bazar Caramel Snow enthusiastically declared: “Dear Christian, this is totally new look!” That was enough to ensure that expression was used throughout the world.

Although Christian Dior died soon of a heart attack at age of 52, he died as famous as Ghandi. He was an admired “boss”, generous and happy. He led a quiet life trying to keep his private life away from the public. He had many friends and had tight relationships with many of them. “Women will help you succeed” one friend once said. Christian Dior learnt to listen to what people say and analyze. He tried to be ahead of the others.

Christian Dior, born in 1905 in Normandy, was a son of a rich chemical fertilizer factory owner. His mother, a woman of very strict traditional  background, didn’t get along with her son very well. When she ordered to grow a garden around their family mansion, Christian volunteered to help or order to find a common interest with her. Gardening turned into a lifelong love of flowers. He used flowers in his designs and lily, his favourite, to pluck the buttonhole instead of an ordinary button.

Since that time he became interested in the style of Louis XVI, light and bright, which made decorations in a private hotel on the Dior Montaigne Avenue. Because of his disapproving mother who wanted him to be an architect or a diplomat, Dior lived in the shadow of his creative friends, even after opening his own art gallery sponsored by his father. A  present came with one condition – the designer was not allowed to hang out the name of Dior on the facade, because Christian’s mother was ashamed of his son.

After 1929, when his family lost their wealth, a hard time began for Christian Dior – a life in the house without electricity, running water and a leaking roof. Freed, to some extent from the power of the  controlling personality of his mother, he finally decided to take up design.

So he lived, working hard until age of 40 when Marcel Boussac knocked as his door offering a position in his company. Dior’s talents shined to their fullest and his genius design skills got combined with his business ego. Today, sixty years later, Christian Dior is a leading fashion house, now part of Mot Hennessy Louis Vuitton. Cocteau was right, Dior name is worth a name of Gold.

Today John Galliano is a lead designer of Haute D’Dior. He has been working in this position for 20 years. Energetic Galliano, just like Christian Dior, came out by surprise and has proven to be worthy of continuing Dior tradition. Both Dior Sunglasses and John Galliano Sunglasses are available in our store along with prescription Dior Eyeglasses frames. Some of the most beautiful are for preview below.

Sunglasses by Color
