There are so many sunglasses out there, endless shapes for everyone, we chose a few that have caught FR’s attention in terms of uniqueness, concept and style.
Chloe Carlina Gets a Makeover with a Twist
Continuing the success of one of Chloe‘s most coveted styles, the iconic “Carlina” sunglasses are reinterpreted with a fresh creative touch that adds instant flair to this already magnetic style.
The newly designed frame is encircled with an unconventional twist motif upon intertwining metal filaments, creating a three-dimensional effect around the seemingly floating lenses. The slender, gently curved temples are adorned with a droplet-shaped cut-out – the brand’s new signature detail, which serves as an embellishment as well as a functional element to attach the jewelry-inspired chain accessory.
Simultaneously ultra-feminine and alluring, the lightweight, metallic sunglass features dynamic, colored lenses which evoke shades of nature, including a playful rainbow option and a flash effect.
The new “Carlina” style is offered in Gold with Peach lenses, Gold with Rainbow lenses, and Gold with Flash Brown lenses.
Giorgio Armani D’ARTISTE Balances Elegance and Greativity
The Giorgio Armani D’ARTISTE sunglasses are inspired by a strong and free artistic spirit. Presented during the Giorgio Armani Spring/Summer 2018 women’s fashion show, these feminine frames express a stylistic language that is constantly evolving while balancing creativity, pure elegance and modernity.
With a foundation of a classic round shape, the sunglasses feature an ultra-light metal frame. Their design is linear and geometrical, a rigorous approach that contrasts with the eccentric oversized floral-patterned mirrored lenses.
The D’Artiste sunglasses are available in three colours: shiny pale gold frame with brown gradient floral lenses and polished black temples; shiny gunmetal frame with navy floral lenses and polished black temples; and shiny rose gold frame with pink floral lenses and polished black temples.
Ferragamo Rainbow Celebrates History of the Brand
Innovation and tradition unite amid a bold and stunning spectrum: Ferragamo Eyewear presents “Rainbow,” a special eyewear introduction inspired by one of the most celebrated creations in the Ferragamo archive.
The patent for the original, iconic Rainbow shoe dates back to 1938, with its cork wedge covered with multi-color suede. Innovative in both material and shape, it was designed by Salvatore Ferragamo for American actress Judy Garland in a bold array of colors. Although it was a far cry from the linear style of the 1940s, the shoe quickly became a must-have which encapsulated Ferragamo’s extraordinary talent for combining color and cutting-edge design.
The new “Rainbow” sunglasses draw on graphic design and extensive production techniques, pairing an aviator frame with bold, special “tattoo” style lenses which feature a digitally printed, full-color horizontal design.
The rich color palette includes four variations in daring tones, featuring different patterns, taking the design to the next level. The Shiny Silver/Mint and Shiny Gold/ Antique Rose versions have stripes on both the upper and lower parts of the lenses, while the Shiny Silver/Azure and Shiny Gold/Petrol versions only have stripes on the upper part – with a special lens gradient treatment applied back to front, from dark at the bottom to light at the top.With “Rainbow,” Ferragamo Eyewear is writing the next chapter in a unique story that merges expertise, creativity and memory.
