BLACKFIN // IDENTITY – SAME SAME
SPECTR Issue #26 is published this week and carries the motto “Identity”. In many of our shootings we have played with this theme, but most consistently in our cover shoot, in which four couples reflect each other. With SPECTR #26 we also want to mirror ourselves. The new magazine is readable from one side as well as from the other – there is no front and back. In order to push it even further, we’re releasing the new magazine with four different covers.
In the shoot we stage some of the BLACKFIN 2019 highlights. The label from the southern Dolomites is almost predestined for the title theme, because BLACKFIN carves its own path. On one hand, BLACKFIN is breaking free from fashion and trend stereotypes. On the other, the brand is making clear and fashion-forward statements with its clean lines and special color effects. Through the blend of high-quality Italian eyewear manufacturing expertise with modern, ambitious designs, BLACKFIN is finding its own style – and identity.
What all their diverse glasses have in common is a high level of quality in terms of materials and construction. Most frames are crafted with one-piece titanium fronts and ultra-flexible temples from beta titanium. This makes the entire collection entirely nickel-free, bio-compatible and hypoallergenic. When it comes to sunnies, they all feature anti-reflective lenses.
The label from the Agordino region excels at blending a high fashion appeal with technical finesse in its Black Edition. This unique combination of tech and glamour showcases titanium frames at the highest level. Ten best-selling BLACKFIN models receive their high-gloss finishing via a coating with the patented Blackfin Nano Plating method. The understated frames in base colors such as black, navy and brown receive an extra layer of detail through colored accents. These colors are applied atom-by-atom in a vacuum vaporization technique, resulting in extraordinary color effects and beautiful colors guaranteed to last. The Black Edition models are far from the only eyecatchers in the line-up. The original BLACKFIN collection also stuns with self-confident styles and high-end finishes.
