These CHANEL ski goggles were made in several colors and were part of CHANEL’s first ever skiwear collection, introduced in winter of the year 2000, designated by a double “C” framed within a square. This model does not have any code or product number printed on it as it was the first in a line of CHANEL ski eyewear that was yet to come. The same model was represented at the CHANEL fall/winter 2001 collection.
It is made of sturdy thick rosee pink rubber. It has two layers of visor lenses parallely placed at a distance of aprox. 1cm apart. The upper and lower parts of the frame have holes in them to allow air to filter through while skiing in order to prevent fogging. The holes are covered up with thin foamy plastic.
The strap headband carries the CHANEL brand name as well as the CHANEL double “C” logo on it. We believe this model to have been made in Italy but as there are other CHANEL ski goggles of newer production with the “made in France” logo printed on them, we cannot be sure.
These goggles are very small and only fit relatively thin faces. They are very comfortable to wear and do not leave noticeable marks on the wearer’s face after prolongued wear. The back of the frame has a thick layer of foam glued to the rubbery pink plastic.
These ski sun goggles were a CHANEL boutique exclusive and were not on sale in any eyewear retail stores.
This CHANEL model came in the typical sport pouch the brand used for all sorts of sports accessories.
From a pure aesthetical point of view these shades look very good as an object rather than a facial accessory.
