Biscayne Bay, Fisher Island, Brickell and Aventura: The names of the new sunglass models from Silhouette are inspired by Miami - also known as the Sunshine City of the USA. The sun shines there for a remarkable 360 days a year and shapes everyday life in the vibrant city.
It’s no surprise that the new sunglasses by Silhouette reflect Miami’s sun’s rays, but this year’s SUN collection also reflects social trends. In fact, the color scheme of the SUN collection represents the polarization of attitudes we see in our society today. On one hand we have Lightness and Trust, represented by blue and green tones. These color palettes show the urge to seek out the familiar and find comfort there. By contrast, Independence and Courage signify the desire for change. Here, the pinks and contrasting blacks and whites stand for exploration—the desire to discover new things and leap into the unknown.
The SUN Collection of the world’s leading manufacturer of premium rimless glasses strikes a balance between comfort and a desire for exclusivity. They are ultralight and elegant, but always understated and tasteful. All models in the current SUN collection can be 1:1 optically glazed custom-made to their frames in the in-house Lens Lab with the expertise of Silhouette Vision Sensation®.
Biscayne Bay, Cape Florida and Bayside show dynamic elegance
The Streamline models are aimed at wearers who want to find that perfect combination of sleekness, elegance and style, and who want a versatile pair of glasses that works as well in the boardroom as on a golf course or in their sailing boats. These glasses “take the best features of Silhouette glasses and put them all into a single package”, explains Roland Keplinger, Design Director at the Austrian company. “Lightness. Perfect fit. And an aesthetically pleasing combination of materials.” The Streamline models also feature impressive technology. The new photochromic lenses automatically darken on brighter days, adjusting seamlessly to the prevailing light.
Fisher Island and Star Island: head-turning shades with a touch of understated glamor
Inspired by the curves of beautiful high-end lamps, Silhouette’s ultralight Rimless Shades models are the epitome of modern, feminine chic. They don’t just protect the eyes from the sun. They are graceful accessories that allow the wearer to showcase their exquisite taste and femininity. These are glasses that offer head-turning glamor combined with effortless minimalism.
Brickell: an evergreen with lightness
Sun Lite sunglasses aren’t just versatile. Think of them as an exclusive, fashion-forward accessory made from the ultralight material SPXⓇ+, which makes them the perfect choice for men who want an unfussy look that helps them stand out from the crowd. The new Sun Lite “Brickell” model matches any outfit and occasion. The exceptional Sun Lite Collection is proof that Silhouette, the world’s leading creator of premium rimless eyewear, is capable of producing some of the finest full-rim glasses too.
Aventura and Midtown: a dance of light and shade
A spectacle of light and shade occurs whenever sunshine falls upon the waves. Silhouette has taken inspiration from the water and let it flow into its EOS sunglasses. The transparent frame is made up of a series of wide and narrow sections, giving the glasses a “frame-in-frame” appearance. This allows it to function as a prism, causing light to refract into different colors and creating a brilliant display. In today’s market, modern full-rim glasses have to reconcile opposites and offer customers the best of all worlds: big, eye-catching frames that are featherlight; designs that feed off light and shade; retro 70s inspired looks with a contemporary twist; and luxury and understatement in all in one.
