Sold - CHRISTIAN DIOR Mod. D01 1970s Vintage Oversized Sunglasses
These iconic vintage Christian Dior D01 sunglasses from c. 1973 feature a bold oversized design with unusual side lenses. Green optyl frame. Original plastic lenses with a colour gradient from blue to yellow. CD logo on both arms. Lady Gaga wore a version of these sunglasses for a photo shoot with Craig Greenhill in July 2011.
Very good vintage condition with relatively minor signs of wear, especially given the fact that this model is prone to developing specific flaws, hence rare to find. Rather minor scratches to frame and lenses throughout. The lenses show rather small areas of rubbed off coating to the front and the side lenses where they meet with the arms when folded, and there is one hair crack to the upper edge of the left arm - both flaws are particular weak points of the D01. Please consult the images.
