Dior Launches New Cannage Sunglasses, by Brand Heritage

1 min read

Dior has unveiled its latest eyewear creation: the Cannage sunglasses. This new release pays homage to one of Dior’s defining codes, the iconic cannage pattern, which has become synonymous with the Parisian brand’s heritage.

The inspiration behind the Cannage sunglasses dates back to the founding of the house in 1947, coinciding with Christian Dior’s groundbreaking New Look collection. The design draws its inspiration from the graphic pattern of cannage, which was prominently featured on Napoleon III chairs that adorned Dior’s haute couture salons at 30 Montaigne.

The intricate cannage pattern, with its harmonious mesh, has since become an iconic emblem of Dior’s couture heritage. In recent seasons, the design has been prominently featured in collections by both Maria Grazia Chiuri, Dior’s women’s creative director, and Kim Jones, Dior’s men’s creative director.

This season, the refined lines of the cannage pattern are subtly engraved on the arms of the Dior Cannage sunglasses, intertwined with the initials CD, representing Monsieur Dior’s enduring legacy.

Available in a variety of shapes, including rectangular and pilot styles, the new Cannage sunglasses offer tinted lenses that promise sophisticated femininity. The digital campaign for these stylish shades was captured by Sasha Marro.

Priced at €430, the new Dior Cannage sunglasses are now available for purchase online, offering fashion enthusiasts a chance to own a piece of Dior’s iconic heritage.
