The Unboxing of our Dior parcel created a reverent hush instore. We have been eagerly counting down the days to its arrival since being chosen to be Dior eyewear specialists in Auckland (ok, a little humble brag). Already knowing these sunglasses and opticals are really something special, we were still blown away by the innovative designs and the exquisite house detailing.
Designed in Paris and manufactured in Italy, these collections for both men and women combine minimalist metal frames with bold acetates and oversized shapes. The details are to die for; incorporating cues from the fashion house’s ready-to-wear collections, such as the CD logo on the ’30 Montaigne bag, and the signatureChristian Dior from the Book Tote. The new womens' collection of 10 models includes the Ultradior, 30Montaigne, EverDior and Wildior will have heads turning – we promise!
We can share with you the myriad of ways these will truly take any look from good to great; but first, let us walk you through some of the key styles…
