Ribera and Sant Martí are trendy districts of Barcelona. Inspired by their stylish cafés, chic bars and trendy clubs, Silhouette has created women’s sunglasses to match their vibe. The two new models of Accent Shades from the SUN collection, Ribera and Sant Martí, add two new, large, contemporary lens shapes to the Silhouette SUN designs. The fine Accent Rings around the shapes create a striking, full-rim look. This particular Silhouette innovation is made using high-tech SPX®+ plastic, which is lightweight, flexible and warp-resistant. The plastic itself was invented by Silhouette too. It makes the Accent Shades ultra-lightweight, whilst still achieving a full-rim look.
Fine Accent Rings emphasize the modern shapes
The Sant-Marti model comes in a modern, octagonal shape. The Accent Rings around the lens create a subtle outline, accentuating the shape. Sophisticated cut-outs on the sides leading to the temples, provide the optimum fit and comfort. On the Ribera cat-eye model, the Accent Rings also serve to emphasize the lens shape. Soft, accentuated lines create a striking design. The contour makes for an additional dynamic, like an elegant brushstroke that begins finely, then widens, before ending delicately again. This timeless cat-eye has been updated with its soft, almond shape.
Balance between the familiar and the new
Both shapes appear timelessly elegant, yet strikingly eye-catching at the same time. The Ribera and Sant Marti both come in four exciting color highlights that Silhouette has developed for 2023: Trust - with its warm, earthy tones, Lightness - with a refreshing and light shade of lavender, Independence - in an energizing shade of strong, petrol green, and finally, Courage - in a bold, high-contrast, blue-red combination. The temples can be individually adjusted and the ends can be easily shortened. As a full-service provider, Silhouette also supplies customized prescription lenses for the Accent Shades, which are produced in their in-house lens lab in Linz using Silhouette Vision Sensation®. With the two new models, Silhouette has struck a perfect balance between the familiar and the desire for new ideas and embellishments. Innovative Light Management Technology® also offers unprecedented protection against harmful UV rays. The specially developed transmittance ranges of Silhouette’s lenses provide a pleasant, brightening effect and brilliant, high-contrast colors, along with perfect anti-glare protection. Thanks to Light Management Technology®, the lenses are also more receptive to yellow tones, which have a color-intensifying and positive, mood-enhancing effect.
