Chanel released it spring-summer 2012 eyewear collection to much fanfare with ad campaign images featuring Linda Evangelista and with photos by Karl Lagerfeld. For the past few years, Karl Lagerfeld has relied on the Code of Chanel such as pearls, matelassé (quilting) and chains woven with leather. For spring-summer 2012, rather than relying on a signature Chanel code, Karl Lagerfeld put together a strong collection of glasses with pops of color. Bright reds, yellows, turquoise and pale pink lighten up an otherwise traditional palette of black and tortoise shell. View the new collection, including boutique exclusives in the gallery below.
