The All Seeing Eye

Comment, Style & Design News from Mondottica


Christian Lacroix has a beautiful eye for optical designs. The brand effortlessly marries classic, timeless elegance with contemporary and fantastical vision as seen, once again, in the new SS19 optical range. As well as featuring new fashion statements, this collection by Lacroix brings joie de vivre with original charm.

Inspired by the brand’s Histoires Naturelle lifestyle collection is the iconic and exclusive green Bosquet pattern of CL1040. Its emerald front contrasts with chic temples in striking white holding a metal plaque engraved with the brand’s logo. The style is available in two additional patterns. The constellation version displays lavish crystal dots, while the babylonia version features bright flashes of yellow, green and cherry red.

Another highlight from the collection, CL1095 features the iconic Cassata pattern on the top brow line of the frame and along the temples with raspberry pink/brown tutti-frutti or midnight blue/aqua colourations. For a luxurious touch of glamour, the style comes also in a new chevron acetate by Mazzucchelli inspired by the famous pattern of the main collection and re-imagined in black with a gold glitter motive. Garnished with opulent tones, CL1096 playfully continues the Cassata story in blue and bordeaux. The style is available also in Berlingot, a modish zebra-print lamination.
