Astonishingly, the human eye can distinguish more than 200 different hues. So, it’s hardly surprising that color is central to our experience of the world. It often defines us: the color of our eyes, our hair, what we’re wearing – these are the first things that people notice about us.

And now, Silhouette celebrates the power of color in all its variety with the Dynamics Colorwave. Accent Rings collection.

“You don’t even notice you’re wearing them”
Anja Van Der Borght, from Holsbeek in Belgium, is co-founder of WOWtrendmag.com and founder of WOWwatchers.com and a big fan of Silhouette eyewear. Anja first fell in love with the brand when her mother got her first pair of reading glasses from Silhouette in 1990 – an oversized golden Art Deco style. When Anja needed reading glasses herself, there was no doubt in her mind about what to choose: “Needless to say, I also went for Silhouette. They are light and comfortable to wear. What’s more, they’re classy and elegant too. You don’t even notice that you have glasses on and yet they give your face just that little extra something.”
Lightness and character now take an innovative new form with these rimless design icons by the House of Silhouette. We are talking with Roland Keplinger, Head of Design, about this evolution of rimless.
