The Chanel Butterfly Sunglasses is the latest addition to my sunglasses collection. I’ve preferred metal-framed sunglasses for the past few years, but I felt like I missed acetate-based sunglasses… So here I am, going back to the cat-eyed design.
The Chanel Beauty boutique carries sunglasses, select small leather goods, and beauty-specific vanity bags from time to time. I fell in love when I saw the Chanel Butterfly Sunglasses because of the cat-eye design and the CUTE Chanel label on top. It has a unique and fashionable feel and goes well for many occasions!
The Chanel Butterfly Sunglasses come with a soft-shell fabric case with the Chanel “CC” logo. I guess this is a new design in 2023 because sunglasses used to come with a hard-shell leather case. I like the soft-shell case because you have some flexibility if you want to store it in a small bag.
I absolutely adore the Chanel Butterfly Sunglasses! It fits my face really well and is secure enough to play golf in. The last thing anybody wants is to have their sunglasses fly off when they tee off. At first, I wasn’t feeling the beige lettering because I am used to sunglasses frames being all black. It grew to me, especially with the Chanel logo on the sides being silver. The sunglasses feel high-key, extra, and I love it!
This is definitely something you wouldn’t rock to a Las Vegas day club. Instead, rock them at a rooftop restaurant for lunch.
