The All Seeing Eye

Comment, Style & Design News from Mondottica


With vintage-inspired details and elaborate embellishments taken from the Maison’s archive, the Christian Lacroix SS21 optical collection exudes luxury.

CL1113 is a frame we adore. This acetate style features a slightly oversized front as well as a metal logo plaque embellishment on its temples. It is available in a striking Blue Tortoise hue with warm orange, yellow and royal sapphire navy nuances. In addition to that, the style also comes in a classic Black version and a vibrant Red Tortoise.

CL1117 is a model that perfectly captures the elements from the jewellery and sunglass ranges. This acetate style features a retro eye shape paired with beautiful gold detailing like, for example, the antique-looking circular logo plaque with encased ‘CL’ initials. Reminiscent of a vintage stamp seal, the round embellishment adorns each of the gold metal end pieces. Further to this, the iconic gold butterfly is placed delicately on the inside of the temple tips signing-off the style in true Lacroix fashion. Choose from colourways such as the warm tort hues of Ecallie Marine to the deep red of Rouge Cerise to the dark black of Jais to embody the beauty of craftsmanship whilst simultaneously exuding Parisian chic!
