Just Arrived: Balenciaga Eyewear

Launched in Spain in 1919 and moved to Paris in 1937, Cristobal Balenciaga’s House of Balenciaga embodied the essence of Parisian elegance, counting some of Europe’s most influential women among its customers before the designer shuttered the label in 1968. Balenciaga was relaunched nearly twenty years later, in 1986, as a ready-to-wear collection, but it wasn’t until Nicolas Ghesquiere took the helm in 1997 that the brand was revitalized to the creative force it once was.

Balenciaga sunglasses retain the brand’s sophisticated and unique spirit, drawing inspiration from design and architecture, modern elements, and a passion for shape and construction. The frames are bold and elegant, an urbane statement in graceful lines.
