The sunglasses of the season are everything: 1950s camp, 1980s electroclash, and nowness class. In Christian Dior’s S/S RTW ’13 runway show, we saw fashion transformed, as Raf Simons in known to accomplish, and part of the magic growing in that topiary maze was a perfect sunglass, over a rock-candy-thick glittered eye. Simons knows that the secret to creating the new shape is to finesse the old, and this sentiment is seen in the Dior Demoiselle. It's the classic cat-eye with a fresh, darkened or thickened eyebrow we can see on any pop star or fashion icon of today—cute as a kitten and cool as a Cadillac, top down.
