Dior sunglasses

brand information

Born in Normandy, France, in 1905, Christian Dior's first career began in 1928 when, backed financially by his father, he opened small art gallery selling art by the likes of Pablo Picasso. However, a family financial disaster meant he had to close the gallery, and Dior spent the 1930s making a living by doing sketches for haute couture houses. In 1945 he went into business for himself, backed by Marcel Boussac, the cotton-fabric magnate. Dior's fashion house opened in December 1946, and the following February, he presented his first fashion show.

Christian Dior eyewear follows the same themes as his couture wear: futuristic and sophisticated cutting edge style, maintaining an eminent wearability.

Iris Optical has carried Christian Dior sunglasses since May 2005.

For customers in the UK, these frames are stocked in our Richmond TW9 and London E1 (City, close to Spitalfields Market) stores. For customers outside of London England, these sunglasses can also be ordered by phone, and we can also repair your own Dior sunglasses.

Prescription lenses can be fitted to many Dior sunglass models: please contact our Richmond or London City stores for more information.
