METROPOLITAN // Block Titanium from Bavaria
Metropolitan launches first Titanium frames
Starting this season, the optical industry is welcoming titanium eyewear ‘Made in Bavaria’. That’s because German label METROPOLITAN is releasing its first collection crafted from the ‘material of the gods’. In the process, the design-driven label once again proves that clean design and striking form language are no longer exclusive. The frames are machined from block titanium and feature subtle facets. Also geometric cuts and edges, as demonstrated by the feminine »8105« style and its male counterpart, the »8106«.
As for the perfect wearer for these design highlights, the women’s model does require some degree of self-confidence. The lens shape offers a creative take on basic cat eye spectacles, yet without appearing overbearingly playful, but rather modern and avant-garde. The 3D-indentions in the bridge and temples also add to the overall depth of detail, alongside the embossed METROPOLITAN logo. In the same vein, the men’s style impresses with a modern and unique form language that is far from conventional.
But what about recognizable METROPOLITAN features? Look no further than the brand’s understated one-piece temples featured prominently in these two styles. In terms of color palette, these new titanium beauties walk the line between black, lavender, mint and gray for a look that is bound to appeal to today’s urbanites who appreciate design and quality. Solid!
