So where did the Chanel eyewear revolution begin?

The iconic brand grew from the revolutionary talents of one ambitious woman – Gabrielle Bonheur “Coco” Chanel.  Born in 1883, Mademoiselle Chanel was raised in an orphanage and spent her childhood perfecting her needlework.  After a brief stint as a singer, at the age of 27 she opened a small shop in Paris specializing in hats.  Her work began to attract the devout attention of France’s fashionable and famous, and by 1915 Gabrielle was able to expand her business into a couture fashion house in Biarritz.

Having established a reputation for simple, yet elegant style for women, the Chanel brand went from strength to strength.  Over the next decade the fashion house unveiled the iconic No. 5 fragrance, invented the groundbreaking ‘little black dress’ and was invited to clothe Hollywood’s silver screen elite, winning the hearts and wardrobes of stars including Elizabeth Taylor, Jane Fonda, Jackie Kennedy, Grace Kelly and Jean Moreau.

Gabrielle Chanel passed away in 1971, but her innovative spirit remained firm at the core of the fashion house’s ethos, and in 1999 Chanel partnered with eyewear manufacturing giant Luxxotica to launch its first collection of luxury branded glasses and Chanel sunglasses in the UK.

Crafted with sophistication and simplicity in mind, Chanel fashion eyewear has become almost as iconic as the No. 5 perfume itself, and with Optix UK you can try and buy a pair of these glamorous spectacles for yourself.
