CELINE SUNGLASSES – SQUARE ACETATE – MADE IN FRANCE
Celine’s glossy black sunglasses are designed with dark to clear gradient lenses for an intriguing note. They’re crafted in Italy from acetate with a geometric aesthetic in mind – evident by the square profile and silver-tone circular inlays – then finished with wide arms tapering to a slender tip featuring inlaid gold logos. Try teaming them with all-black ensembles to continue the sleek mood.
- Celine was founded by Céline Vipiana and her husband Richard in 1945 as a made-to-measure children͛s shoe boutique that was located in Paris at 52 rue Malte. The shop was denoted by a highly distinct red elephant logo created by cartoonist Raymont Peynet. Finding success, the duo expanded and opened three more stores by 1948.
More than a decade later, Vipiana used her success as a launch pad to branch out into ready-to-wear, with the goal to deliver fashion to the everyday woman. On a platform that advocated for practical clothing over frivolity, she launched a sportswear-driven line that revolved around wool skirt suits, fitted shirts, leather vests, and pastel-colored denim.
