What inspired the Gemma sunglasses by Chloé? Well, we’re so glad you asked. The French house took cues from ornate stained glass and are defined by the patchwork of pastel hues that work their way around the butterfly lenses. Dipped in a rose-gold hue, the arms are signed with its maker’s moniker not once but twice while the temple tips are fitted with drop-shaped openings – take them as your cue to style them with one of the label’s retro chains.
Founded in 1952 by Gaby Aghion, the original Chloé girl, the label is regarded as one of the essential postwar brands, alongside Yves Saint Laurent and Christian Dior. With icons like Karl Lagerfeld as former head designers, Chloé continues to draw upon its rich heritage of beautifully designed pieces, widely featured in publications such as Grazia and Harper’s Bazaar.
