The world’s most expensive sunglasses, made for Chopard by De Rigo Vision, are attracting the rich and famous shoppers to Paris Gallery outlets in Dubai. De Rigo Vision, the world leader in the design and production of high-end luxury glasses, has created for Chopard this unique pair of sunglasses. It was first introduced in the One and Only Royal Mirage.
The diamonds that adorn the glass frames were set by using a specific technique; and the stones were set closer together than the classic pavé setting. Being placed this way, the stones create a carpet that lets out a special light. A sunglass is not just a means to protect the eyes, but to showcase the richness and luxurious lifestyle of affluent customers, who don’t mind spending a fortune for the branded products.
The brand’s exclusive ‘C logo’ that decorates the sides of the temples is highlighted by hand-crafted stove enamel created by using coloured glass powder that is hand-grounded and placed in the oven four times. Resulting is a pair of irreplaceable jewel sunglasses – the ultimate accessory.
From Milan, the sunglasses, valued at Dh1.5 million came to Dubai in December 2012 and are being displayed at the Mall of Emirates, Dubai Mall and other locations of Paris Gallery. The glasses were presented to the world in Milan in March and are being showcased in Paris Gallery, Dubai Mall.
Dubai has been chosen to display the most expensive sunglass in the world because it is a shopping destination for the rich and famous from around the world. MS Reddy, General Manager, Derivision FZCO, which represents the brand in the UAE and the Middle East, said: “We have been delighted to market the exclusive collection of Chopard eyewear at Paris Gallery. The exclusive eyewear appeals to an explicit group of fashionistas and we are excited to see the response as it is a great addition to our collection.”
There are also expensive prescription glasses studded with gold and diamond frames. The jewel eyewear is one-of-a-kind accessory inspired from the extremely refined designs of Chopard’s classic collection. “Paris Gallery is leading as the region’s foremost luxury retailer and has maintained a strong market presence for more than four decades now. It is the first to deliver the best brands offering consumers with an opulent shopping environment, service standards and a definite luxury shopping experience,” added Reddy.
