Chanel Bijou collections
Chanel Bijou eyewear collections get inspiration directly from the costume jewellery that was so characteristic of Coco Chanel's look. Haute couture designer and founder of the brand was passionate about baroque jewellery. That's the spirit Karl Lagerfeld -head designer and creative director of the fashion house- recovers in every Bijou (French word for "jewellery") collection. All designs look for inspiration in luxurious and glamourous jewellery. Bijou line has survived throughout different seasons, adding new designs and making more or less subtle changes.
Characteristics of Chanel Bijou
Each one of these eyeglasses and Chanel sunglasses belonging to the Bijou collection features exquisite inlaid work in the stems. They have ornaments as glittering strass of different shapes and sizes, creating genuine and chic pieces, such as model 5309B.
The brand's traditional feminine and sophisticated shapes -including butterfly and cat-eye designs- are still present. Anyway, a varied fresh colour's palette is introduced to offer an interesting contrast to the classic craftsmanship. This new style is clearly represented by models such as 5306B and 5307B. However, the elegant classic colour selection of chic black, tortoiseshell and deep brown play an important role as the brand's timeless colour's palette.
Likewise, the iconic double "C" signature is present once again in small or big size depending on the design. Mademoiselle Chanel adored extravagant jewellery so she would approve this lavish style and she would pull it off as only she knew. Since we are very concerned with visual health, all Chanel lenses have UVA, UVB and UVC coatings from factory. These coatings block 100% of damaging radiation.
