Today, the fashion house Chanel is headed up by German designer Karl Lagerfield and holds a reputation for its use of monochrome palettes to create premium collections adorned with its Founder, Coco Chanel’s love for pearls and diamonds. Coco Chanel's vision was to replace such opulent, sexy pieces with items which conveyed casual elegance but still kept their high-end value for timeless elegance. Spokeswomen for the brand have included Nicole Kidman, Vanessa Paradis, Marilyn Monroe, Audrey Tautou and Kiera Knightley.
The ultimate in effortless style and sophistication, Chanel eyewear is recognised across the globe as impossibly chic and opulent, merging their trademark branding of quilting and pearls embellished on the framework and arms, with directional and innovative design features that are coveted by other designers, worldwide. Monochrome styles are accompanied and contrasted by vibrant brights, as well a muted tones, tortoiseshell and even denim. The iconic branding of the two ‘C’s, varies from being subtly placed on the arms and embossed within the lens, to screaming VIP across the framework.
