The All Seeing Eye

Comment, Style & Design News from Mondottica


Capturing the vibrancy of natural elements, Christian Lacroix’s new sunglass edit includes a variety of eye-catching colours and patterns.

Amongst the collection is CL5084, a petite cat-eye frame with stunning patterns built on a clear acetate base. Instantly exuding Parisian decor, the style takes iconic prints found across Lacroix’s ready-to-wear and interior offerings. This stylish model is unique from the colourful opulence of gemstones of Pietra Dura to the new Vichy check pattern. The cut-out details on the temples resemble needles used by designers in Fashion House, leaving for an overall vintage feel.

Last but not least, the tastefully oversized CL5083 draws inspiration from two of the most visually striking animal creatures, the leopard and the peacock. As seen on @tiah_bee above, the sunglasses feature gorgeous laminated prints that elegantly accent the bottom of the frame and continue in a swoosh upon the temple. The temple is finished off with a sleek gold metal logo in typical Lacroix style. The frame also comes in a chic, zebra-like pattern combined with flattering shiny black temples.
