Emilio Pucci Eyewear Collection Preview

Emilio Pucci Eyewear Collection Preview

Emilio Pucci presents its new eyewear collection for the fall-winter 2015/16 season, produced and distributed by the Marcolin Group following the new licensing agreement between the two organizations. Laudomia Pucci, CEO of Emilio Pucci, declares: “Two Italian success stories, Emilio Pucci and Marcolin, have partnered together, giving rise to a licensing agreement for Emilio Pucci sunwear and optical collections. Merging creativity and know-how, brand values and innovation, our shared passion has brought forth a collection with a strong character and a touch of irony. We consider eyewear a strategic part of our business and Marcolin is the ideal partner to help us strengthen and grow the business, not only on the stylistic side, but also in terms of production and worldwide distribution, whilst maintaining the high standards of “Made in Italy” excellence”. Giovanni Zoppas, CEO of Marcolin Group, says: ”We are very pleased and honored to start our collaboration with Emilio Pucci today. It’s a brand with a very unique position in the consumers’ mindset due to its extraordinary heritage, iconic and with a great and long-standing tradition. In common we have high affinity for the product’s design and for the brand codes and values, that’s the reason why including Emilio Pucci in our brands’ portfolio will definitely provide additional quality to the women’s universe that we address”. The new models perfectly interpret the aesthetic philosophy of the florentine brand, one that’s characterized by tradition, elegance and style offset with modern touches, celebrating a creative vision in continuous evolution. Refined materials, stunningly modern design, sophisticated production techniques, master craftsmanship, attractive construction and an unerring pursuit of quality are the defining features of these new creations: a classy reinterpretation of elegance and femininity. Brightly colored prints – a trademark of the fashion house – bring the eyewear models to life, exploring the possibilities of refined nuances and daring color contrasts. Take Butterfly, for example, a new print whose design evokes the movement of a butterfly against a stylized background. Or Zadig, from the fashion house archives, made up of irregular segments that come together to create a vortex. Then there’s Flower Power’s stylized flowers on a multicolor geometric background; Ribbons’ borders that move to form semi-circular shapes; the iconic Emilio Pucci print Vivara, from which the wave motifs have been borrowed, and finally Peonia, with its large, soft-lined flower set against a block-color background. The different types of prints are further enhanced by a mix of exciting materials, exclusive architectonic details and tinted or mirrored lenses. The result is one of absolute uniqueness. The eyewear collection, including sunglasses and optical frames, is a consummate reflection of the Emilio Pucci spirit: on-trend shapes and detailing are set within a sublime marriage of retro style and impeccable craftsmanship, striking a chord with the dynamic, style-sure modern woman. The gaze is enhanced through a perfect combination of differing volumes and proportions, ensuring that each and every model is utterly unique. The new collection, which will be distributed worldwide from March 2015, will be on sale at Emilio Pucci boutiques including online at emiliopucci.com, top department stores and selected opticians. SUNGLASSES COLLECTION: The new EP0009 retro-style sunglasses in acetate and metal exude a sense of simplicity and elegance, a charm only enhanced by their feminine architectonic structure and gently squared profiling. With lines and volumes in perfect harmony, the model invokes the elegance and femininity that is so indicative of the Emilio Pucci brand. The connection to the fashion house is reiterated through acetate detailing on the upper part of the front, available in the Butterfly or Ribbons patterns. Elements of transparency characterize the iconic rounded shape of the markedly feminine EP0012 model. The front is brought to life through the juxtaposition of two acetate rings that reveal the Zadig print, while the circular metal base lends a timeless elegance to the model. Subtle and discreet, the bridge complements the exquisite metal detailing between the front and stems, encapsulating the refined, exclusive feel of these glasses. The EP0030 model strikes a perfect balance between retro overtones and contemporary allure, celebrating feminine sensuality through soft forms and classic detailing. The sinuous, rounded lines of the front lead into linear stems, evoking the unmistakable elegance of the 1970s and paying tribute to the purest form of femininity. The curved frames create a sense of almost ethereal lightness, with the acetate body adorned with a single metal detail on the initial part of the stems, which themselves play host to the most discreet of PUCCI logos. A choice between colored or transparent lenses completes the model. OPTICAL COLLECTION: These EP5005 cat-eye glasses are full of sophisticated charm thanks to the contrast of materials linking front and stems. Acetate and metal alternate to give the frames an elegant, unusual feel, something further emphasized by the Vivara print embossed onto the metal part of the stems. Available in bright tones and more classic colors, this model is the embodiment of simple, understated femininity. The bold personality of the EP5007 model makes it an instant must-have of the season, with the glamorous charm of the cat-eye frames in acetate set off by innovative graphic effects. While color blocking characterizes the central part of the front, contrast shading or the Butterfly print adorns the edges, an effect enhanced by the cut-effect finish. A similar play on contrast is the driving force behind the stems. These frames are the perfect representation of the impeccable craftsmanship that has long been the brand’s watchword. ...

Introducing the Aspire Eyewear Collection

Introducing the Aspire Eyewear Collection

Introducing the next generation in eyewear: Aspire Eyewear. Incorporating the latest in technology, advanced materials, and fashion, Aspire Eyewear is a colorfully captivating, aspirational collection for today’s men and women. Making its global debut at 100% Optical, London, and MIDO 2015, the Aspire brand is distributed exclusively through U.S.-based optical industry leader ClearVision Optical. Aspire Eyewear was created to provide today’s individualized consumers with the next generation accessory that addresses trends related to both innovative technology and materials. The entire Aspire collection was designed using 3D technology prior to prototype creation, significantly reducing sample development from 20 weeks to 20 minutes. Offering a “barely there” feel and fit, Aspire includes features that enhance comfort, wearability and adjustability. It is created with SDN-4, a specially designed nylon material proprietary to the brand. Designed for the manufacture of extremely lightweight eyewear with exceptional thinness, the incredibly strong, hypoallergenic SDN-4 material also offers shape memory, is heat resistant, and will not fade in UV exposure. Using customized SDN-4 sheet material, Aspire frames are not injected, but created with Computer Numerical Control (CNC) machinery to produce unique shapes and endless color possibilities. “Eyewear is an expression of the wearer in the most visible way, so we created Aspire Eyewear to connect with progressive, “aspirational” men and women who show their individuality through fashion and unique accessories; it allows them to show what they aspire to be,” says Peter Friedfeld, Aspire architect. “Utilizing the latest advances in materials, bespoke design and manufacturing techniques, Aspire eyewear was born—creating the next generation in eyewear. Eyewear that is transformational and transitional, that defines the personality of the wearer, and transcends the ordinary — and achieves this with an incredible ‘barely there’ weightlessness, comfort and wearability.” Aspire launches with 12 optical styles available in 3 colors each, including 6 styles for women and 6 styles for men that offer some crossover, feature five architecturally inspired temple designs in both stainless steel and TR-90. Three sun styles in traditional shapes including cat eye, aviator, and navigator, are also available in the launch collection. Models are named according to aspirational adjectives that express consumers’ unique style, or what they may “Aspire to be,” including Special, Stylish, and Independent. Key features and benefits of Aspire Eyewear: Almost 50% lighter than a regular plastic frame (weight = 14 g) 22% lighter than a typical titanium frame Almost 50% thinner than typical acetate frames (front = 2.25 mm thick) 3 colors for each model, including crisp translucents and on trend fades Proprietary adjustable nose pad system Screw less hinges Aspire frames will be available in the market in February 2015 in select optical specialty shops. A suite of merchandising materials will accompany the collection and includes a consumer-facing waiting room video, custom designed brand IDs, counter cards, and display.

This next generation of eyewear was made possible through the use of a proprietary SDN-4 material and advanced 3-D printing capabilities. The philosophy behind the branding for this label is based on the question: “What Do You Aspire To Be?” This message is carefully articulated in its personality-driven design for both men and women. The brand references popular trends, classic motifs, and advanced architectural aesthetics to express different personality types in its collection.

Chloris: Light and Depth

Chloris: Light and Depth

Morel releases Koali’s Chloris into the wild. Inspired by the movement made by the tangle of small fibers found at the end of the Chloris grass, this transparent acetate concept is based on the effects of light and depth. With the help of Mazzucchelli, we have created a material made up of acetate strands, in opaque colors, that are embedded in a translucent colored base. Playful fronts dance with light as the strands echo the movement of Chloris as it sways in a warm breeze. The Chloris concept is fitted with thin temples and a flex hinge. This unique product is driven by color and material both evoking the fluidity and delicacy of this tropical grass. Chloris is available in three models and in a color palette ranging from hues of purple and plum, to bright red, black, blue and hazelnut tones. For more information visit www.morel-france.com ...

Silhouette Introduces Radiance

Silhouette Introduces Radiance

The new rimless luxury eyewear collection, Radiance by Silhouette, spells out spectacular splendor with the tiniest of crystals set into an extraordinary bouquet. Elegant contemporary design, quality materials, and that special Silhouette know-how create a luxurious harmony. “Inspiration from the sparkling world of crystals has resulted in a design that is minimalistic yet sophisticated,” says designer Sonia Serlenga. She notes, “The asymmetrical design of the crystal decoration brings to mind organic shapes in nature.” The contemporary cut of the temple provides the perfect backdrop for the crystals. A straight line and the openness of the temple contribute to harmonious lightness and clean elegance. Extraordinary craftsmanship is of special importance and a tradition at Silhouette. The fascinating sparkle of the Radiance Collection is perfected with the elaborate crystal appliqué technique. With precise craftsmanship, the crystals are set using an in-house technique by which each piece of eyewear becomes something distinct. The perfectly cut crystals are individually applied to the temples by hand with the aid of a magnifier. The result is a glamorous crystal firework that radiates perfection and timeless beauty. A steady hand, a good eye, and great powers of concentration are the prerequisites of crystal appliqué. This is a technique that has been mastered worldwide, and used only by specially trained experts in Silhouette’s production department. For each of these models, the designer has created a matching crystal design. All variants share in common a clean, timeless look. Elaborate crystal applications flatter the wearer with a radiant appearance. The hand-polished eyewear becomes a real jewel with the application of 23-carat gold plating. The gold plating is multilayered, for a corrosion-resistant, nickel-free, hypoallergenic finish. This limited release has been especially designed for select locations.

Crystal Diva, Sparkling Beauty and Lightness

Crystal Diva, Sparkling Beauty and Lightness

Soft lines, precision, and an intricate manufacturing technique make the feminine Crystal Diva models by Silhouette, truly unique. The perfect detail of the softly waved glamorous hairstyles of the early Hollywood movie stars, served as inspiration for the elegant women’s eyewear collection.

The Silhouette Crystal Diva is a multifaceted, softly sparkling piece of jewelry for the eyes, which is crafted by hand in Austria. Crystal Appliqué is a unique technique that creates luminous brilliance. Silhouette crystal setters are specially trained to apply 300 finely cut crystals, with a diameter of barely a millimeter, to the temples. This process is done by hand with the utmost precision. As a result, each crystal truly sparkles where it is meant to. Thanks to an adhesive specially developed by Silhouette, the crystals gleam in supreme splendor.

Smith Introduces XL Options for Lowdown and Outlier Sunglass Models

Smith Introduces XL Options for Lowdown and Outlier Sunglass Models

Bigger and bolder, Smith is launching XL size offerings this January for its popular Lowdown and Outlier sunglass models. Widely seen in the optical market, customers can now select styles based on design rather than be constrained by frame size. After releasing the popular Lowdown Slim last year for smaller face fits, the five-piece Lowdown Family now has a large coverage frame with the new Lowdown XL. The oversized eye wire, with traditional square lens shape, has been carefully considered to balance its scale with pantoscopic angle to ensure a superior fit for a broad range of faces. The lifestyle-driven design is style appropriate for large face shapes and equally as wearable as an oversized frame for fashion-conscious customers. Comprised of feather-light yet durable 53% bio-based Evolve™ frame material, the Lowdown XL is part of the largest eco-friendly sunglass collection in the world. The Lowdown XL also features anti-lock hinges and hydrophilic megol nose pads to keep the frame in place when introduced to sweat or moisture. Available in eight colorways with non-polarized and polarized Carbonic TLT lens options. Inspired by our best-selling Outlier sunglass, the new Outlier XL brings all the features one should expect from Smith performance-driven sunglasses into a larger frame style perfect for medium and large heads alike. Designed for the thrill seeker, the larger rectangular shaped lenses, with distinct keyhole nose detailing, is offered in non-polarized, polarized and ChromaPop™ polarized lens options for the largest level of enhanced color and visual clarity. The addition of megol nose and temple pads create a comfortable and secure fit during any outdoor adventure. Both models, also RX compatible, are available at retail and online at smithoptics.com in January 2015.
