CHANEL model 08841, color 90405 is another example of extreme fashion sunglasses modelling. These shades are very editorial and so oversized that they can almost pass as a mask.
Made of very sturdy, heavy metal and satin painted in black, these shades are fragile as the paintjob can chip and scratch easily. The frame is made of two big round circles containing a lens each. The front of each circular frame has additional four double “C” logo silver metal plate circles added to them. Each double “C” logo is painted in black. This addition to the front of the frame is what makes these shades particularly editorial and extremly outgoing.
The temples are played out, in contrast, as an understatement. They are made of metal, painted in black and have very small “CHANEL” inscription logos, one on each temple. These logos are almost invisible and kept black, in the same shade as the temples.
These sunglasses are another example of exceptional CHANEL know-how when it comes to making a classy and yet twisted bold statement with something as volatile as a pair of shades! They were sold only in CHANEL boutiques as in the nineties there was no distribution of CHANEL sunglasses in any eyewear retailer as CHANEL had then not yet granted any permission to sell their eyewear outside of the CHANEL boutiques.
