True story, I grabbed a bunch of Chanel shopping bags from the recycling in my basement. When I went to unfold them and put them away, I found these sunglasses in their case in a Chanel bag (inside another Chanel shopping bag.) There were a few other ‘corporate gift’ things as well, so I’m guessing a jaded fashionista neighbor couldn’t be bothered. A similar pair sells at Bergdorf Goodman for $695. These are made in Italy and are marked with CHANEL logos everywhere including the lenses. I believe the pearls are cultured pearls – they have a nice range of different colors. The case is also marked MADE IN ITALY.
One of the shopping bags had a mailing label from Chanel addressed to an editor at a major fashion magazine, so I’m guessing this was a corporate gift or leftover from a photoshoot.
I live in a large apartment complex in Manhattan and former neighbors include Tim Gunn, Andre Leon Talley and Taylor Momsen.
