Sunglasses, Claudia Schiffer by Rodenstock
Bid on it now: StyleCycle Vestaire celebrity sale Claudia Schiffer
At the beginning of the year, Claudia Schiffer and Rodenstock went into partnership and presented their first eyewear collection. Following on from this success, the collection has been developed further with exciting new colours. Four selected models in the Vintage, Boyfriend and Oversized styles are getting a stylish colour update: ‘The beauty of sunglasses is that they are such an easy and inspiring way to build a look. Accessorized with the perfect coat, bag or jeans, a pair of sunglasses can make a strong statement” says Claudia, who loves to mix up her classic wardrobe essentials with fun accessories. Since the beginning of the working relationship with Rodenstock, Claudia, as the creative director of the collection, has integrated her inspirations and ideas into the design process. Her creativity as well as her style are reflected in all the frames - timeless, feminine and modern. The new colours complement the collection to perfectly fit into this concept.
The Willow sunglasses are already an undisputed fashion favourite, and are now available in a luxurious retro pink coloured layered acetate (C3007 E). In the Havana shade (C3007 F), they become the perfect must-have accessory for one of Claudia’s signature outfits of blue denim jeans and an elegant cashmere sweater. The gold-coloured temples of the frame also add a touch of glamour. It’s an effortlessly chic look which reflects Claudia’s relaxed style.
The Boyfriend Look
The Chestnut frame is updated with two new colour variations. A bright blue style with playful camouflage temples (C3003 E) which is sporty as well as chic. “I love colourful accessories with an element of fun. These frames are a perfect pop of colour for autumn. I’ll wear them with jeans, high boots and a statement cape” says Claudia. In addition, the rubber-coated surface adds a sporty high-quality feel. The combination of transparent grey and burgundy red are also very elegant (C3003 F). For fans of the Boyfriend style both variations are in keeping with this season’s trend for masculine tailoring.
In addition some of the over sized frames and modern shapes are unisex. “I’ve always loved the look of my husband’s glasses so I used these for inspiration for shapes and colours on the Boyfriend models” says Claudia. For minimalists, the Apple frame is a perfect choice and is now also available in a classic black (C3004 F). It is a timeless frame that belongs in every wardrobe as it can be casually chic or elegantly dressed up . Based on the colours of autumn and inspired by Claudia's passion for nature, this model is now also available with a Havana front and a contrast bright orange temple (C3004 E).
Oversized in 2 new colours
Previously only available in single colourways, the best-seller Birch has now been updated with a combination of different colours and prints. Claudia’s vintage inspiration from the 1960’ and 1970s is also reflected here. White oversized sunglasses are the ultimate retro fashion statement. The frames now have an elegant contrast temple in warm brown (C3006 E). The fashion-pack will also love Birch in a bold red with a contrast black-and-red marbled temples (C3006 F). “The oversized frames are one of my favourite styles because they add a vintage touch to an everyday outfit” says Claudia
The new models of the autumn/winter collection of "Claudia Schiffer by Rodenstock" will be available from selected opticians and retailers.
