The new Céline Sunglasses collection for Spring Summer 2017 has just been announced. We got a sneak peak of the new styles at the Beverly Hills Hotel and were lucky to have our friend Jasmine there to model the new styles.
The Céline SS17 sunglasses release includes 9 new styles as well as new colorways for existing styles.
Three dimensional cuts play a key role in the collection. The Céline 41449/S (larger) and 41450/S Kate (smaller) are based on squared shapes with beveled acetate that turns the eyewear into a stunning boxes of light. These styles are both instant classics.
The rounded Céline 41448/S Ava is part of the same design family. Particularly noteworthy is the jeweled-toned Beige colorway that catches the light in a spectacular way.
In formal contrast, there is the Céline 41445/S, launching in the strong shades of black, white and the very characteristic, blushy Céline colorway Pink. Calling to mind the curves of a pair of lips, the outward facing contour on the browline is and feminine and dramatic.
Frames Within Frames
Two frames which bring a new aesthetic to the Celine line, the Céline 41446/S Zoe and Céline 41447/S Petra, reflect the idea of a “frame within a frame.” A thin, luminous outer layer is just translucent enough to reveal a slightly more defined peek-a-boo frame beneath. The play of light gives new meaning to core colors gray and petroleum blue, while each style comes in one additional colorway for the more adventurous: Fuchsia (41446/S) and Orange (41447/S).
Céline has stepped into a new arena with the release of two new frames constructed with a titanium sheet front. Although this may seem like a radical departure, the Céline 41451/S Ed and Céline 41452/S Mila are very much in the Céline sunglass tradition with respect to clean lines, distinctive shapes and house palette.
On the Edge
The runway piece for this season is extremely sharp. With a flat top, severe pantoscopic tilt and acutely angular corners, the Céline 41468/S Edge is poised to cut a unique position in the fashion world. Available exclusively in black or blue, this piece isn’t expected to ship until the first week in March, but order now and we will send it out immediately upon release. Keep an eye out for the Céline Edge on the runway and in ads.
The Céline SS17 Sunglass release also includes new colorways for existing favorites, including Baby Audrey, Thin Shadow, Lea and Marta. Baby Audrey and Lea have been both updated with stunning whites, and Baby Audrey also now comes in Transparent Brown. Both the Marta and Thin Shadow has been released in two of this seasons knockout candy colors: Teal and Transparent Fuchsia.
