Chanel: Tweed and Carbon Fibre Collections
The 2012/13 Autumn/Winter season is going to be rife with new releases from many different brands, however one collection has caught the eye of many for it’s ingenious and ground breaking production process – the Chanel Tweed and Carbon Fibre Collections!
Let’s take a look at Tweed; rubber is injected at high temperatures with real tweed fabric and the temples’ steel core wire is placed in the mould on the tweed fabric. The resulting temples are thinner, lighter and more easily adjustable than acetate temples. No glue is used and the fabric maintains its original aspect and touch which means that the tweed threads are actually visible on the arms. This highly precise process incorporating Tweed is exclusive to Chanel Sunglasses and the signatures are engraved in the mould to guarantee a flawlessly perfect design.
Chanel’s Carbon Fibre Collection is a revolution in eyewear technology, embracing the inherent durability of Carbon Fibre with the beautiful styling and lines of Chanel Sunglasses. They are available in three styles; a classic teardrop shaped lens, a retro squared off lens effect and a fantastically out there circular sunglass!
