This week saw the launch of the brand new Chanel Bijou Collection in the Grand Palais in Paris and we had the privilege of being invited along to this highly exclusive event! Of course we were there to see the new Chanel Sunglasses range, however it is worth pointing out the beautiful and down right glamorous clothing and location we were in. Undoubtedly, Chanel are the pinnacle of fashion brands and their lavish, decadent ethos spilled out into everything that went on over the course of the week including the brilliantly choreographed catwalk showcasing their latest lines (see exclusive footage of this in the video below).
Due for release this year, the new Chanel Bijou Sunglasses collection is quite simply exquisite with chic temple designs and lenses that would make even the sports specific brands jealous. A combination of acetate, metal and diamantes; the frames are magnificent and would fit perfectly on the face of any fashionista out there and the beautifully crafted arms taper over your ears for a comfortable and easy to wear fit. Chanel Sunglasses always feature fantastic lenses to complete the look and a range of colours will be available in the new range from Graduated Grey to Brown which accentuates the already striking frame colours. Your eyes are protected at all times with UVA, UVB and UVC filters on all lenses and this will block 100% of harmful rays; an invaluable asset should you want to wear them all day as a lifestyle piece.
As you can see in the image below, the release was also overlooked by world famous Chanel designer Karl Lagerfeld who cast a very approving eye over all proceedings and thanks to his endorsement, the Bijou Collection is set to be one of the most popular styles in the world! This collection will be hitting the shelves in 2013 and once we have a solid release date, we will be sure to keep you all informed. Follow us on Facebook and Twitter for daily updates and check out the exclusive images below!

When you think about beauty and high-end fashion, the first name that springs to mind is Chanel Sunglasses and this year they have given us the Chanel Pearl Sunglasses. Made with real pearls and in several different colours, this stunning collection is bound to take the industry by storm this year. Here at Shade Station we are one of the very first retailers to have exclusive access to these and in this blog we are going to take a more in depth look at what makes this collection so special.
Straight off the back of their tweed collection, the Pearl sunglasses are an absolute revolution in eyewear fashion and design; endowed with real pearls, amazing frame material and amazing lenses, this is quickly becoming a range that every fashionista is dying to get their hands on! Coco Chanel loved pearls, whether they were real or fake, and believed that they were the essence of femininity and it is this belief which has inspired the beautiful CH6038H and CH6040H Sunglasses. The frames are made of acetate; a lightweight and comfortable material which can easily be worn all day with comfort and the colours are taken from some of Chanel’s most striking sunglasses. Chanel have given them a slightly ‘cats-eye’ appearance which makes them fit in perfectly with the 2013 trend and the tapered arms make for a more interesting design.
Looking at the lenses, they must just appear to be the same as every other lens available on the market, but Chanel pride themselves on the optical correctness you get whilst wearing these. Made from a polycarbonate compound they are 100% UVA, UVB and UVC protective which will keep your eyes safe and sound at all times whilst giving you fantastic clarity of vision. Chanel are producing these in a range of colours from Graduated Grey to Brown to ensure that they fit in with any outfit you may choose to wear them with.
Take a look below at our video review of these sunglasses to see exactly what you are getting before you buy!

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!

With all the hype surrounding the Royal nuptials of Prince William and Kate Middleton this week, we thought it would be interesting to throw some light on the sunglasses the Royal family favour.
On the whole the young royals are a fairly sporty and active lot, especially Zara Phillips who represents Great Britain in showjumping and is of course engaged to England rugby player, Mike Tindall. Both Princes are keen footballers, skiers and fine polo players and Kate Middleton is well known for her love of sport, whilst Princess Beatrice became the first member of the royal family to run the London marathon last year.
Naturally active types gravitate towards sunglasses designed for optimum sports performance, so it’s no surprise that the Royals are often seen wearing Oakley sunglasses. Prince Harry is frequently photographed with a pair of Oakley sunglasses either on his face or perched on his cap and Prince William has been snapped skiing in Cloisters with Kate Middleton, wearing Oakley Straight Jacket sunglasses.
The blue-blooded girls tend to mix and match, favouring oversized sporty wrap around shades for casual and then large glamorous sunglasses for best. Zara Phillips is particularly fond of wrap around sunglasses and Oakley do a similar style to the ones Zara wears, called ‘Miss Conduct’ in their Active range. Kate Middleton is a fan of black oversized shades, any of which can be found amongst the designer ranges on Shade Station. Chanel and Dolce & Gabbana both design great sunglasses that Kate would love…. Rumour has it that Miss Middleton may be opting for an Alexander McQueen wedding dress for her big day, so fans of the Princess-to-be, may like to check out the Alexander McQueen sunglasses range too!
Prince Andrews daughters, Beatrice and Eugenie are also conscientious style setters, both preferring classic, but oh so stylish Ray Ban Aviator sunglasses.
With the Met Office forecasting rain in London this Friday, it’s doubtful we’ll see any Royals wearing sunglasses… however we’ll be equally happy checking out the fabulous outfits on display and Kate’s amazing wedding dress!

The arms also incorporate a textured metal section and display the distinctive double C Chanel logo on the hinge.

An amazing pair of sunglasses can make an incredible fashion statement and the ultimate classic label which depicts style, sophistication and timeless appeal is none other than Chanel.
Founded in 1914, by the originally stylish Coco Chanel, the designer primarily started the label having opened two small boutiques in France. As time went on, the Chanel name became synonymous with style and quality and the brand brought us such fashion classics as the little black dress, the quilted handbag, the Chanel suit, and the famous line of perfumes. Before her immense success, Coco Chanel was considered rebellious with her sense of fashion but her label has become possibly the most sought after in the world.
Chanel products now include clothing, fragrances, accessories, make up and of course, sunglasses. In 1999, in partnership with Italian eyewear producer Luxottica, the House of Chanel introduced its first line of sunglasses despite Coco Chanel passing away twenty-eight years previous. Her influence on style and fashion remains one of the most prominent and heavily inspired by her own creations, Karl Lagerfeld of Fendi (who is now the Creative Director of Chanel) decided to launch a line of Chanel sunglasses which first became largely popular after been seen on the ladies Sex and the City.
One of the most attractive factors of Chanel sunglasses (aside from the beautiful designs!) is that they allow you to enjoy a part of the label at a smaller price – many of Chanel’s products are priced way out of the league of the majority of consumers, and therefore the glamorous sunglasses allow you to enjoy the glamour of Chanel and become part of the brand.
Over the years, Chanel has designed a large range of sunglasses but the brand likes to keep its styles typically oversized, classic and dramatic. These elements are synonymous with the Chanel brand in general and it is what makes the products distinctive and unique. The CH5076H Chanel sunglasses for example are oversized with thick translucent brown lenses and definitely inject an element of drama and Chanel glamour into your look. For something a little classic, the CH5149B sunglasses with oversized black frames are perfect and the jet black quilted patterned arms make these sunglasses incredibly Chanel. The Chanel quilted bag is one of the most sought after and desired accessory in the world and these sunglasses incorporate the style. For something even more overstated, the CH5146 Chanel sunglasses with a black and white crystal patterned frame are the perfect option. All the sunglasses within the Chanel collection feature the classic double C Chanel logo upon the arm hinge and some also incorporate diamante detailing. Whatever the features, Chanel sunglasses are instantly recognisable by the timeless, dramatic style and exceptional high quality.
Oversized sunglasses are a huge style trend and are very much synonymous with the ultimate fashionista! Chanel is very much a trend leader that others try to emulate and the range of sunglasses are trendy and stylish but remain classic and elegant which is ultimately what the brand is all about. Chanel sunglasses will complete and compliment a refined, polite and sophisticated look in true A List style and celebrity fans of the brand who are regularly seen wearing their Chanel sunglasses include Mary Kate and Ashley Olsen, Nicole Ritchie and of course, American Vogue Editor Anna Wintour.
Coco Chanel once said that luxury was “the necessity where necessity ends”. Even if you are unable to afford other products in the Chanel collection, a pair of the brand’s sunglasses will definitely allow you to experience a little bit of that necessary luxury!
