These goggle-looking sunglasses come from a time when CHANEL (the brand) made more daring choices and used bold geometric shapes to define their fashion collections as well as eyewear. The sunglasses from the nineties were available only in CHANEL boutiques so there was definitely a shortage in the quantity these pieces were produced in hence increasing their postumous value on secondary markets.
These shades come from a decade when some of the most amazing CHANEL sunglasses, like model 0027 , were produced.
We remember model 05976 being presented on the catwalk while the female models wore tight leather skirts and jackets. The sturdy black acetate covers the face like goggle’s would a fancy mad scientist or some fashion mutated aviator. But all jokes aside. These sunglasses are special as their frames extend and protrude to the sides, expanding the feel that the frame is thicker then it really is.
The double “C” logos are both screwed to the sides of the frame and are made of golden metal. The temples contrast the thick appearance of the frame with a thinner and elongated shape. The temples are made of acetate and are screwed via hinges to the frame.
The lenses are a dark black/bluish shade as usual for CHANEL sunglasses from the nineties.
