Blackfin Style For A Truly Magnetic Look

The name says it all for this new sunglass model for women from the Blackfin Zero EDGE range. Model BF715 MAGNETIC perfectly encapsulates the very essence of this 100% Italian, titanium eyewear brand: style, design, research and innovation. The slim-line front frames the lenses that are the real stars of the show. The angular curves of the front stand in contrast to the taut arc that divides the massive lenses into two hemispheres each featuring a different mirror-finish. A design that is as bold as it is stylish, that attracts attention but without ostentation. “A magnetic contrast of lines and colours”, as designer Corrado Rosson defines it, yet designed for maximum lightness and comfort. The huge lenses ensure perfect all-round vision and sun-protection. The super-strong flexible beta-titanium frame has screw-free ATOM ZERO flexi-joints and patented Swordfish temple-tips that can be shortened at will for a perfect fit. Weighing in at a total of only 17.2g this is truly a triumph of design. Blackfin Zero EDGE MAGNETIC expresses all its personality in its three versions: opaque purple with multilayer purple/midnight blue mirrored lenses, opaque black with silver black/lemon...

Wisdom Is In The Eyewear

Wisdom Is In The Eyewear

Tangram is an age-old Chinese puzzle made up of a square divided into seven different geometrical shapes, each in one color. The art of the game lies in creating as many complete figures as possible, using combinations of these parts. “A Tangram champion is a champion of talent and wisdom”, runs the legend. VANNI’s Tangram glasses add a touch of stylish wisdom to the expression. Made from slab acetate devised by the VANNI style center, an exclusive product, the Tangram texture is all cubes split into irregular pyramids, alternating against a deep crystalline background which may be see-through or solid and one of many color options. Tangram acetate starts from different colors, largely black/crystal, but also brown/electric blue, light blue/violet, lime/grey, turquoise/orange, and maroon/purple. The color contrasts bring out the overall effect of the material and, seen against the light, generate a kaleidoscope of reflected color. For more information visit www.matcheyewear.com
