Celine is the 76-year-old French fashion house, associated with Parisian chic and timeless elegance. Founded in 1945 by the married Vipiana couple, Céline and Richard, who had no professional design experience, the brand has quickly grown from a made-to-measure children’s shoe boutique into one of the most famous luxury fashion houses in the world. The Celine of today epitomizes effortless, sophisticated French fashion, creating wonderfully minimalistic pieces appreciated by millions of modern-day working men and women. Combining timeless styles with contemporary sportswear, the brand offers nothing but ultimate comfort and unbeatable style.
Paying homage to Parisian chic and utilizing premium quality materials, Celine creates outstanding products with artistic director Hedi Slimane at the helm. The same values are translated into the brand’s eyewear collections, which are a perfect mix of classic and modish frames depicting a refined and contemporary silhouette. Nowadays, the Celine sunglasses and optical frames are created by Thélios, the joint venture between LVMH and Marcolin Group, which also designs and manufactures eyewear for such world- renowned brands as Loewe, Kenzo, Berluti, Louis Vuitton and Fenty. The latest eyewear collection from Celine is a fashion-forward assortment of ultra-modern shades and prescription glasses.
Celine glasses bring French luxury to the forefront, mixing vintage styles with modern, ground-breaking designs. A classic pair of Celine glasses is a sleek and chic silhouette that makes a posh, polished statement. Crafted in Italy, these high fashion frames come in an array of lens shapes, from timeless aviators and rounds to ultra-modern square and geometric frames. Constructed with a combination of top-grade acetates, metals, and Barberini glass, Celine eyewear pieces are lightweight yet durable accessories that are guaranteed to serve the wearer’s needs for years to come. The iconic three-dot logo finishes the look, giving a touch of Louvre-worthy luxury to any outfit.
A symbol of Parisian elegance, Celine’s 2021 eyewear collection offers new optical and sunglass styles, designed for men and women who opt for timeless and elegant designs with a modern twist. Sleek and minimal, Celine glasses are perfect accessories for a special occasion, a simple night out or for everyday wear. 100% produced in Italy and crafted in iconic and essential designs, the collection creates a sophisticated, understated look that is also distinctly unique. The lineup includes evergreen, timeless silhouettes revisited in new, modern versions with updated shapes that range from sensuous cat eye to innovative geometric designs.
Celine was established by Céline Vipiana and her husband Richard in 1945, when the Second World War had just drawn to a close. Initially, it was a children’s shoe boutique that offered ‘haute couture’ shoes for kids. Shortly after, the brand had spread across Paris and extended to include a women’s clothing line. Céline’s main idea was to create comfortable everyday clothes, elegant and stylish, yet without any irrelevant polish. To make it come true, she used at first such fabrics like leather, denim and wool. In the 1960s, the designer created her first line of leather goods and accessories, before a natural progression to design the ‘sportswear’ collection in 1968. Shortly afterwards, the brand expanded its lines to fragrances and jewelry.
Today, that same ‘haute couture’ spirit is reinforced by artistic director Hedi Slimane through the ateliers at 16 Rue Vivienne. From outstanding ready-to-wear outfits and handbags to shoes and eyewear, his elegant and chic designs showcase the meticulous possibilities of French craft within the Celine wardrobe. To pay homage to the heritage, the ‘triomphe’ monogram was restored – a symbol of the house of Celine since 1971. We, at EuroOptica, are very pleased and proud to be an authorized distributor for sophisticated Celine sunglasses and optical frames. We’re waiting for you at 280 Columbus Ave, New York to show you all the beautiful pieces we got in.
