SILHOUETTE // Wearable Butterfly
The reinterpretation of SILHOUETTE’s ‘Accent Shades’
For over 55 years, Austrian premium eyewear label SILHOUETTE has not only made a reputation for positioning eyewear as a fashion accessory, but also pursued the creation of the world’s most lightweight optical frames.
Especially known for its rimless models, the brand represents innovation, quality and timeless design. What’s more, SILHOUETTE is dedicated to a conscious and sustainable use of our planet’s resources. In a current countermovement to ‘fast fashion’, the brand is reinterpreting its line of ‘Accent Shades’ that have been inspired by the wings of the Peruvian butterfly known as morpho didius. The edgy new butterfly and panto shapes are prime examples of timeless style and real eye catchers thanks to their cut-out construction in full-rim silhouettes. They also prove once again that cosmopolitan chic and safety are not mutually exclusive, as the frames not only offer high-end design but also premium UV-protection. The best part: All sunglasses can be fitted with prescription strength lenses thanks to the company’s Lens Lab and Silhouette Vision Sensation technology. The process involves calculating the optimal lens measurements all the way to the very edges based on the customer’s chosen lens shape and prescription levels. What more could anyone ask for?
Our photographer Sacha Tassilo Höchstetter flew all the way to Sao Paulo to shoot the current ‘Accent Shades’ sunglasses collection with two models in provocative poses and extravagant styling. But you won’t have to travel such great lengths to experience SILHOUETTE, just ask your local optician.
