Silhouette 2021 Highlights
For the last few decades, SILHOUETTE has commanded a position among the world’s premium eyewear labels. Through it all, the Austrian company has delivered the constant level of quality and innovation to act as one of the main players among independent eyewear brands.
For a full showcase of excellence, we have hand-picked several standout models from four different SILHOUETTE collections. The level of design is always top-notch, the main differentiator is the range of materials employed by SILHOUETTE. What’s more, the frames all share the same longevity, high comfort of wear as well as amazing lightweight.
Let’s take a closer look: In the Momentum Select Collection, SILHOUETTE applies stylish touches of black and gold. Both of these colors, although from different ends of the spectrum, work in unison to create stylish accents. Elegance meets true luxury. The rimless models receive a true style upgrade through the ultra-thin black Accent Ring. Taking things over the top, the extraordinary lens shapes make a self-confident style statement.
The Greek goddess of the dawn served as the namesake to the Eos View Collection. These full-rim frames conjure images of first light in their translucent colorways and color accents. The shape-in-shape effect provides these models with a three-dimensional character that is enhanced by carefully appointed color nuances. The comfortable Eos View models not only make a great impression in the early morning hours when the sun rises but can be counted on 24/7 for overwhelming lightness and depth of color.
Transparency is the operative term in the Infinity View Collection. These models dazzle viewers with their lightness, translucency, and lofty appearance. From a design perspective, the one-piece look is the true standout: The lenses and frames seem to blend together without visible or noticeable transitions. The borderless polyamide shield is secured by titanium temples that allow for easy customization to individual wearers.
Finally, the models in the Lite Arcs Collection all share the signature cut-outs in the upper bridge above the lenses. The effect is created via delicate laser cuts. These titanium half-rim frames serve as a modern interpretation of Nylor frames and make a strong statement with their purist design and clean form language. Conformable for all-day wear. Stylish through day and night with that special SILHOUETTE design DNA.
Up to date in terms of fashion styles: rimless styles with ultrathin acetate rings in a premium black-gold colorway.
