Raf Simons has left his position of Creative Director of La Maison Dior, perhaps the overwhelming nature of the position became too much for the talented Belgian.. However, his final catwalk collection was a piece de resistance, a fitting legacy of his short lived tenure at Dior. In terms of our focus, the eyewear collections have been injected with life, passion and an electric vitality.
The Dior So Real has been a great success as have the Technologic and Reflected. The courageous shapes and lens treatments, flat lenses, mirrored stripes were confidently presented and went on to be must haves amongst A list, it girls and the bloggerati. The catwalk sunglass from February 2016 is no different. In 5 colours, each reinvented aviator 'Split sunglass' has solid metal thirds, top and bottom with a rectangular lens aperture coated in elegant yet modern mirrored hues including soft pin, sky blue and green. This Split geometric lens design will become an iconic accessory of 2016 and we consider this sunglass to be an iconic hero for Dior in the making, a fit successor to the ubiquitous So Real. Already seen on Rihanna at Spring/Summer show, watch the Dior Split become the sunglass of 2016... #dior
