Silhouette 2012: Celebrate the Sun
Silhouette’s 2012 sunglasses collection consists of 16 models - mainly rimless designs -that were created to meet all the requirements of sun protection, high design standards, comfort, lightness and state-of-the-art processing.
Silhouette Co-owner and Chairman Arnold Schmied said: “The demands of the wearers of sunglasses are becoming more and more individual. Our challenge is to anticipate and recognize this. With the new 2012 sunglasses collection we are not following a trend but making statements.”
The trendsetting Lifestyle by Design range includes models such as the ultra light Silhouette Icon, which has no screws or hinges, available in seven colours with polarized or prescription lenses.
Silhouette’s Aviator Shapes, which are extremely popular among Raleigh Silhouette patrons, have been reinterpreted in the Silhouette Adventurer, a robust, flexible model in hi-tech titanium. It is available in four different lens shapes, three colors and in two different styles.
The rimless Silhouette Class, incorporating some elements from watch design, is also available with polarized sun protection lenses in two different models.
The Action by Design collection includes the Silhouette Pro with strong color accents and sporty wrap around design and the classically sporty Silhouette Trophy.
Klaus Schmied, Co-owner of Silhouette and the Director responsible for Technology, Research and Production, commented: “Sunglasses are now one of the most important accessories all year round. Not only are they decorative, though, but more and more people are becoming aware of the real function of sunglasses. ”
“We want to meet these ever higher expectations – paired with lifestyle and design – so we offer many additional features such as polarized sun protection lenses, a sophisticated lens system, the option of prescription lenses and much more.”
Triangle EyeCare is Raleigh’s premier location for quality eyeglasses and carries Silhouette designer frames and can order any piece in their new sunglasses collection.
