Never worn 1970s by CHRISTIAN DIOR (AUSTRIA) KlasikVintageEyewearKlasikVintageEyewear KlasikVintageEyewearKlasikVintageEyewearKlasikVintageEyewear


Made by Optyl who also made many other

top brands under licence including Dunhill,

Carrera and Paloma Picasso, this pair is

late 1970's and is one of the earliest Diors

we've had to offer. Looks to be same period

as this Dior ad from 1977, where they talk

about the Optyl being in, "...frosted tones.".

This material lends itself to smooth, organic

shapes and sinuous slots and slices in frames.

Dior probably used Optyl to its best advantage

and the elevated CD logo on each arm adds

an appropriately subtle touch. And if you are

interested, we've written more about the devel-

opment of the optyl material and brand here.
