If you’re already looking for the most fashionable sunglasses for this summer, DiorSoReal can be the stylish answer you need.
Much like our earlier topic, it’s more a question of dare to wear as this particular design is very avant-garde and unique but also very retro.
A rather interesting approach of the classic silhouette, something I hadn’t seen on a Dior Lady before!
Stella Tennant brought the SoReal news all the way to my Inbox and from there on, I’m delivering it to you as well, asking you if you could wear such sunglasses…
Described as vintage in ‘inspiration’ , with architectural lines, the black mirrored sunglasses are hardly something to look forward on the stylish sidewalks outside fashion week locations. A weird mix of avant-garde and out of this time, the DiorSoReal sunglasses unveils yet another dimension of the new femininity at the Dior maison.
One that is no longer self fueled and sustained by the simple worth of a woman’s natural charm and inclination towards traditional enchantment. An architectural frame in black acetate with black metal finish sustains the 100% UV protective two-toned lenses, a throwback at the pantoscopic glasses of long-gone-eras eyewear (a particular concept in eyewear which enabled the two-in-one corrective vision by adding a lower segment for near objects while the upper segment was conceived for distant objects)
The music from the video commercial itself is aligned with the product concept, pantoscopic tilt eyewear being introduced in the 19th century, just as the Czech composer Antonin Dvorak was releasing his Symphonies to the world (of which the Symphony No. 9, also called the New World Symphony, was sampled for the commercial).
