For a while now I really wanted a cool pair of round sunglasses. I already have an impressive collection of round sunnies: Miu Miu, Ray-Ban and Prada.
So it begs the question: Why would I want another pair? Well when you love a style you stick to it. Let's face it, being a woman it would be a crime to have an unhealthy sunglasses collection.
Enter the Dior So-Real sunglasses AKA- Love at first sight.
Birthed from the Spring Summer 2014 runway show, it was inevitable that they would be an absolute cult hit amongst the fashionista and the blogosphere. I love the ad campaign with Stella Tenant, I think she's the perfect ambassador for the new shades.
It was also Rihanna, Eva Herzigova and Olivia Palermo who debuted them during the AW14/15 Dior show in February.
The sunglasses are a touch of vintage meets futuristic, the echoes of Raf Simons image for Dior. As described by Dior:
"Vintage in inspiration and yet totally futuristic with their architectural lines and black mirrored lenses, The DiorSoReal sunglasses are the light and elegant promise of a couture summer."
The frames come in 4 ways:
1- Quarter Mirrored Tortoiseshell. (Havana- £325)
2- Fully Silver Mirrored. (Crystal Black- £290)
3- Black Quarter Mirrored. (£325)
4- Classic Black with Silver Bridge. (£325)
I settled on the Havana pair as I always think the tortoiseshell effect compliments my skin tone.
The DiorSoReal are available in the Boutiques and online Here.
Here are some lovely alternatives to the Dior ones:
