Although Chanel has manufactured a wide range of sunglasses over the years, the basic style associated with the brand remains the same. The Chanel look is both classic and dramatic. Sunglasses tend to be black (both the frame and the lenses), with large lenses and silver hardware. Of course, all feature the Chanel logo.
Some styles are more glamorous, with diamonte logos, and some have different colored lenses and frames, but a pair of Chanel designer sunglasses are always recognizable by their sheer style and quality.
This season, oversized sunglasses have been very much in fashion, and Chanel has found itself once again leading the way with a selection of styles which are up to the minute while still retaining the classic and elegant feel first worn by Coco Chanel herself.
How to Spot Fakes and Replicas
The high price of the glasses has led to a large number of replicas and fakes being available on the market. While replica Chanel sunglasses — glasses which are designed in a similar style to Chanel’s, but without attempting to pass the product off as genuine — are perfectly legal, fake sunglasses are not. If you do decide to buy a pair of bargain Chanel’s, you should be careful to make sure that you’re not buying illegal fakes. Poor Workmanship
Designer sunglasses have high price tags for a reason — and that reason isn’t simply the name. Chanel glasses are made of high quality materials with no obvious flaws.
- Missing or Misspelled Logos
Do your Chanel sunglasses have two interlinking C’s on the side? If not, they may not be authentic. Another common trick used by counterfeiters is to misspell the logo, or to use a name similar to the real brand name.
- Poor or Missing Packaging
As with any high quality item, sunglasses made by Chanel are expensively packaged. A “real” pair should come with a Chanel sunglass case, box, and tags. Many also come with certificates of authenticity. If these are missing, or of dubious quality, think carefully before buying.
