Stylish people who enjoy indulging in a luxury lifestyle may be sought-after customers, yet they’re not easy to inspire. That’s why Silhouette has come up with something really special: anyone who loves the look of wood-grain can now choose this look for their premium eyewear. The global market leader in premium rimless eyewear from Austria has developed an innovative, bionic, high-tech, laser finish. It has been applied to the SPX®+ temple of one of the models from the rimless Hinge C2 collection. The term ‘bionic’ is used here to encapsulate the beauty of nature combined with the power of Silhouette’s high-tech precision. The SPX®+, invented by Silhouette, is a lightweight, flexible and strong, premium plastic. When this material is treated with the innovative process, the result is a high-quality wood-grain or horn finish reminiscent of luxury interiors. A high-gloss surface is then applied to the laser finish for a completely new look and feel. Plus, the luxurious appearance is further refined with 23-carat gold-plated, decorative touches on the wood-grain effect on both sides and also adorning the temples.
Masculine design using an exciting combination of materials
Premium rimless eyewear is already extremely popular. Silhouette has now come up with a way to increase that popularity even further. The bestselling temples from the Elegance design family have been enhanced in the cheek area, giving the overall impression of being more dynamic, fresher and more minimalist. The result is a very stylish and resolutely masculine look, with clean lines and a striking profile. Bold curves, adjusted proportions and a sophisticated combination of materials convey masculine prowess. “This model is a nice addition to our Hinge C2 design family with its high-precision, cylindrical and maintenance-free hinge,” explains Roland Keplinger, Design Director at Silhouette. “By deliberately updating the trim, we’ve conveyed even more lightness and modernity, and have emphasized this with sophisticated designs.”
Two fresh, young designs
The Hinge C2 is extraordinarily light, beautifully made and also very durable. It’s made from hypoallergenic material. Now, two fresh, young designs demonstrate that the collection still has its finger on the pulse. The stand-out feature of the first design is the on-trend double bridge. This is unisex eyewear in luxurious black and gold. The second design is a modernized, rectangular shape in brown and gold. Both come with simple, standard glazing and are easy to wear. As a full-service provider, Silhouette has the ability to match lenses to frames perfectly. Like the rest of the production process, this work is also carried out entirely in Austria.
