Dior

Sophie's Choice: Dior

Here at Eyesite we love diversity. We love everyone's different style, fashion insight and interpretations of what's on trend. Our Senior Eyewear Stylist Sophie had to share her love of this season's Dior with you all:

The Rise & Rise of Dior.

SO REAL

Since Rihanna made the ‘So Real’ the eyewear piece to be seen in, Dior has been our go to brand. Now available in over 32 different colour combinations and variations we’ve seen it go from strength to strength. Those floating lenses, that distinctive shape, the metal/acetate mix, those colours! It is a must have staple piece for any sunglasses enthusiast- undoubtedly a true icon in the fashion world.

However, my personal favourite, is one of the original colours. The navy and rose with a flash of pink. (pictured below) But I’m a sucker for anything rose gold! I just can’t help it, I’m like a magpie. Is it rose? Is it shiny? Is it mirrored? Then sign me up!

SO REAL 'POP'

Dior then brought out the ‘Pop’. It was a new take on the original “So Real”, unmistakebly the piece of the summer, full metal front, no detailing on the lenses apart from the new iconic pale hue, blue, purple, pink or yellow. Choose your weapon, or take them all!

STELLAIRE

Which leads me nicely to my must have buy this season. I just have to have it. The Stellaire. Like most of my collection (or you could say obsession) it ticks all the boxes rose, shiny AND mirrored but with a super flat over sized lens that’s made of fine ultra thin lightweight metal. Its super cool! They even do an optical version, and yes, it is rose. I’ll take two!

Dior - Keeping it 'SoReal'

What began as a finely calculated fashion 'experiment', is snowballing into perhaps THE biggest eyewear revelation witnessed in recent times. Enter the "So Real" Effect..

Like a No.1 hit single, hot for a minute, forgotten the next.. It's hard to nail down the key to achieving legendary status. Not since Ray Bans hat trick of the Clubmaster, Aviator and Wayfarer, have we discovered an icon fit for sun blocking duty for years to come. 

Here's our 3 reasons why the Dior So Real is THE must have staple in your wardrobe:

1) It's a risk, but with the least risk. On paper, this style suggests a tricky wear (unconventional round/hexagonal shape,  split / two tone lens etc). It totally isn't - just try these on for size and tell us the combination isn't perfect! The most timid of fashionistas can push the boat out without getting stranded at sea.

2) So the shape is a big hit - cue the influx of new colours & materials! We have already seen the introduction of leather and a mix of colour within the collection, so we're sure Dior will give you plenty of reasons to keep coming back for more. 

3) It's staple, but still very much a luxury staple. Yes we have categorized this as a 'one for all occasions', but this is a GOOD thing! The so real is a piece you can wear equally with sweat pants, as you can at the next wedding. It will sprinkle fairy dust on the dullest of outfits, without ever letting down your best.
