Silhouette has just launched 3 new luxurious collections of ophthalmic frames
The three collections Nuance, Riviera and Radiance reflect the move from premium to luxury eyewear
With timeless elegance applied to each of the ranges, the new collections offer bejeweled decadence for women, and lacquered colour for men.
Inspired by nature, graceful floral arrangements and the aesthetics of botany, the range delivers a special something to the rimless collection, a certain Nuance to the range. Showcasing a combination of innovation and consistency, technology and tradition, the feminine flourish with a floral focus is introduced to Silhouette.
Martin Preuer-Lackner was inspired by nature to create the ¡°Nuance¡± collection. Combining superior craftsmanship with elegant design, the Nuance frames are perfect for the woman with a flair for style. Available in three different dazzling colour-ways, the Nuance range features a Swarovski Xilion Chaton, a crystal of unique luminance and brilliance set in the 23-carat gold-plated frames, featuring a minimal 3.2 ¦Ìm. Unique multi-layered plating gives a corrosion- resistant, nickel-free and anti-allergenic finish. Nuance is available in a variety of shades: polished gold with a matte finish and a sparkling Xilion Chaton coloured in Golden Shadow, a polished gold with pink tip and a ros¨¦-coloured crystal or the white gold with a matte finish, the Xilion Chaton in pure, classic Clear Crystal and black tips.
The new rimless luxury eyewear collection Radiance by Silhouette spells out spectacular splendour with the tiniest of crystals set into an extraordinary firework burst bouquet. The elegant contemporary design and quality materials make an everyday frame something special.
Sonia Serlenga describes her Radiance creation as inspired by natural shapes: ¡°the asymmetrical design of the crystal decoration brings to mind organic shapes in nature.¡± The sparkle of the Radiance Collection is created through the elaborate crystal appliqu¨¦ technique and hand-craftsmanship used to set the crystals, which in turn ensures each piece of eyewear is unique. The result is a glamorous crystal firework radiating perfection and timeless beauty.
The crystals are set in gradients, growing gradually from dark to light, to create a three-dimensional effect. For each of these models, the designer has created a matching crystal design available in Ros¨¦ with polished yellow gold, Topaz with yellow gold and refined matte-satin finish, or Blue with blue crystals and polished white gold. Again, set in special 23-carat gold-plating the gold-plating is multilayered resulting in a corrosion-resistant, nickel-free, antiallergenic finish.
For the cosmopolitan lifestyle that oozes style, confidence and a love for vibrancy, the Riviera portrays a finish for men that interplays technology and aesthetics.
Employing the best materials, clean lines and screwless hinges for minimal maintenance, the luxury framework is enhanced by embossed Chinese lacquering.
