SALT. // THE STAGING OF LIGHT
SALT. Optics is known for embracing the joy of travel, the need for escaping the big city to reconnect with nature again. It’s part of the brand’s nature-inspired DNA, also reflected in the name which is an acronym for Sea, Air, Land and Timeless. The company headquartered in Costa Mesa, California manufactures RX models as well as sunglasses with an eye for timeless style blended with the highest quality standards. The results truly stand out from other brands: SALT. delivers colorways, shades, materials and frame shapes that exude a certain playfulness and easily transition from summer to autumn into winter. Completing the package, SALT. lenses are hand-made in Japan with an array of soft color gradients and shades.
For this winter season, SALT. is bringing three new models to market that are strongly inspired by the mid-1970s, especially the bevel-detail; a slight slant on the titanium frames creating a strong reflective effect. Light hits the triangular bevel at a steeper angle, causing a more intense refraction especially around the top bar and nose bridge. Find this feature perfectly executed in models such as the »Donlan«, »Sherri-Ann« and »Stefan« that are now available in Gold, Silver, and Matted Black. These three new entries provide a dazzling blend of quality, savoir-faire, and elegance – not only on winter days. Let’s take a closer look:
Look no further for an angular unisex-frames that takes minimalism to the extreme. Inspired by eyewear styles of the 1980s, the »Stefan« is crafted from premium beta titanium with natural horn temples. The soft, rounded edges underline the natural beauty of male as well as female faces.
The ultra-light titanium »Sherri-Ann« sunglasses with a vintage touch offer a reinterpretation of classic butterfly shapes in signature SALT. style. The resulting frame is a streamlined butterfly model for women with nods to the oversized shapes of the 1970s. Available in four colorways with matching color gradient lenses.
This understated, masculine silhouette is a unisex model that also flatters female faces. SALT. bridges the gender gap with the stylish »Donlan« model. Crafted from titanium and beta titanium, it’s an everyday essential for every man and woman looking to make a strong appearance in monochromatic Black, Silver and Gold supplemented by natural horn temples.
The verdict: SALT. continues its winning streak with a solid winter season offering, replete with high-grade materials and stylish accents. The smart bevel-detail is something we can’t wait to see more of in the future as it achieves a harmonious union between sophistication and the beauty of natural light. These new frames are perfect for unplugging and reconnecting with nature, that’s the SALT. spirit.
