Chanel – The classic brand, made famous by its creator, the sultry and stylish Coco Chanel, has never gone out of fashion. In fact, Chanel sunglasses are now more popular than ever, thanks in part to the slew of celebrities who are frequently photographed wearing the classic shades. The Chanel brand has been around since 1914, when Coco opened two small boutiques in France. As the years passed, the name became synonymous with style and quality, as the brand brought us such fashion classics as the little black dress, the quilted handbag, the Chanel suit, and the famous line of perfumes.
Although Chanel has manufactured a wide range of sunglasses over the years, the basic style associated with the brand remains the same. The Chanel look is both classic and dramatic. Sunglasses tend to be black (both the frame and the lenses), with large lenses and silver hardware. Of course, all feature the Chanel logo.
Some styles are more glamorous, with diamante logos, and some have different coloured lenses and frames, but a pair of Chanel sunglasses are always recognisable by their sheer style and quality.
