The history of Dior is just as exciting as Christian Dior himself. As one of the first haute couture houses to design a collection of sunglasses, Dior has always been at the forefront of luxury eyewear. Combining creative and elegant designs with optimal protection, Dior sunglasses are the ultimate accessory all year round.
Christian Dior was the first to license the production of his perfumes and accessories to third-party companies. In the 1950s, the New York optician design house Tura signed the industry’s first designer brand license to produce high fashion eyewear. It marked the beginning of many iconic Christian Dior sunglasses for women. Among the earliest styles were the Gypsy frames and the Avant Garde frames. The styles were colorful and adorned with enamel and rhinestones. Other vintage styles include the plastic Hexagon and Diorissimo frames. Eventually, the German eyewear manufacturer Optyl International acquired a license. What beforehand was haute couture and only available to a few became more accessible everyday wear.
Dior eyewear has endured the test of time. Fast forward to today, the vintage styles are as fashionable as when they first debuted.
From metal to lightweight plastic frames, neutral to colorful hues, tinted to mirrored lenses, Dior has got you covered. Fly high with a pair of aviators, opt for cat-eye style for a retro vibe, or channel your inner Audrey Hepburn with oversized frames. Complete any outfit with a black pair of sunglasses, or add a feminine touch to your ensemble with a rose gold pair. Do you want one of the newest styles? Keep an eye out for the Technologic and So Real.
