A FEAST FOR THE EYES: CHRISTIAN LACROIX’S SUN21 EYEWEAR COLLECTION

Celebrated as a unique, exuberant and vibrant brand, Christian Lacroix and its SUN21 collection is a feast for the eyes. Showcasing bold and playful silhouettes and embodying a creative eclecticism, you’ll look classic as well as experimental with a pair of Lacroix sunnies when soaking up the sun this season.

See, for example, the delicate yet flamboyant look of CL5086. This model artfully plays with patterns and an oversized, slightly cat-eye shape for a touch of Parisian glamour. Its textured front features the original Christian Lacroix Prête-moi ta plume print, further embellished by a crystal coloured layer for a frame-in-frame effect. To complete the style, the pattern is also encased in a metal plaque on the upper part of the temples which narrow as they extend towards the end tips.

Another style that oozes sophistication is CL5087, a combined acetate and metal model. Warm flashes of red and yellow decorate its vibrant front paired with matching acetate end tips. Adding a baroque feel is the thin cord-like metal temples that connect the front with the tips in a knurling effect. Adorning the temples are coin-like embellishments bearing Mr. Lacroix’s signature initials for a final dose of finesse.
