My Chanel eyeglasses barely lasted 1 month before i started noticing nicks in the frame and the hardware was becoming tarnished.
I wouldn't recommend Chanel eyeglasses. Go with a brand that specializes in eyeglasses.
My sister got a pair a few years ago, it had crystals on the side and now most of them fell off :/ but other than that they're still usable
Does the acetate dry out if I sweat or something? Does the dryness happen alot? Do you have to constantly add oil to the acetate? :wonderingI have them and really love them! I have owned 3 pairs to date (2 all acetate and one wire rim with acetate sides) and find that they are beautiful and durable BUT the acetate on them does dry out. So, if you by chance do get them wet, when they dry the acetate will appear "white or dry". The dryness can be fixed by applying oil or moisture to the acetate though. HTH!
That's so sad to hear that Chanel glasses aren't that great. Do you know if Lulu Guinness glasses are durable? I'm debating between this and the Chanel pair. Also how would you know if a pair of Chanel glasses are authentic? Does it come with a authenticity card?I would get a pair of lindberg glasses. They look amazing and the lenses are customized to suit you best, and you can get whatever colour you want, and they don't break for the most part. Mykita also makes great glasses. You can step on them and they go back into place. Mine broke after a year and the company replaced the lenses for free.
The optometrist that I went to talked me out of getting Chanel eyeglasses because they said their customer service wasn't very good (i.e. long waits, etc).. and they make great bags as that's their specialty but in the eyeglass department they are lacking. Also, he told me the company that Chanel uses to produce their glasses but I can't remember now but it wasn't a brand that you'd pay very much for. I would suggest getting glasses from a company whose main focus is making glasses.
Also if you do decide to go with Chanel after all, I would advise against Lenscrafters as they are overpriced.
Also, I might add that if the glasses do last a while, they won't be in style forever even though they have the CC logo.
Hope this helps.
OMG!! That's the pair I'm interested in with the Black Camellia flower. What color is yours? Did you ever have the acetate "dry out" as mentioned in one of the earlier posts? How much did you pay for your frame and lenses? Does it come with an authenticity card?Mine (3131 model) were just over 1 year old & it's as good as new.
I believe each pair comes with 2 years warranty.
