With its swanky art deco hotels and sumptuous boutiques, the Boulevard de la Croisette in Cannes has gained an international reputation for its elegance, style, and luxury. This opulent promenade inspired Silhouette, the worldwide leader in rimless premium eyewear, to add a new model to its Elegance Collection. Introducing the exclusive Croisette Club sunglasses —the next generation of modern, luxury sunglasses.
Elegant, yet understated
With their 23-carat gold-plated arches, the sunglasses are made to resemble the gilded windows of the Croisette’s luxury boutiques, capturing that feeling of effortless glamor of cruising the boulevard’s hotspots. The look is elegant and sophisticated, yet understated. “These exclusive sunglasses maintain an aura of cool understatement,” says Roland Keplinger, Design Director at Silhouette. “The aviator shape and classic square look exude a laidback, sporty type of luxury. Meanwhile, the arches have been precision-lasered to deliver signature Silhouette lightness.”
Hand-finished with the finest Austrian craftsmanship
Inspired by the art of jewelry-making, the precious metal surfaces have been brushed and polished by hand, adding to the sense of tasteful exclusivity. The quality and attention to detail in the craftsmanship comes with Silhouette’s “made in Austria” seal of quality. With two different styles to choose from, the perfectly proportioned half-rim frame really lets the modern contouring shine through. Lastly, the masculine look of the glasses can work well as a unisex model too.
