Christian Dior – Optyl sunglasses are always works of art and this model is no less impressive! These shades are made in Optyl patented material with a wooden pattern on the front of the frame and temples.
The lenses are framed with a golden metal screw frame which is attached to the plastic via screws in the nose area right under the bridge. This is clearly visible on the reverse side of the sunglasses because the back side does not carry the wooden pattern print and the plastic is yellowish transparent.
The Christian Dior “CD” logo is made of golden metal and is placed once on each outer front of the temples. The right temple carries the white Christian Dior inscription on it while the left temple carries the model number “2555”, color “47” and the “made in Germany” inscriptions on the inner part.
These shades are sturdy but the wooden pttern print on top of the frame and temples is very fragile and tends to peel especially after so many years so the wearers should be very careful as to how they store the shades after use as rubbing it against any materials may result in damaging to the print.
These sunglasses were available in several colorways. In addition to the version we have in our sunglassespreservation archives we know of an extra black Optyl version.
