Silhouette Eyewear has announced its 2018 limited edition designer sunglass collaboration with the German design duo, Perret Schaad. Johanna Perret and Tutia Schaad, the pair behind the cult fashion label, are known for their understated cool designs. Their use of beautifully contrasted materials, playfulness with shapes and contemporary colours made them the perfect partner for Silhouette, according to the eyewear producer.
The Perret Schaad for Silhouette collaboration is a unique trendsetting frame. The design takes inspiration from the vibrancy of the modern urban environment and offer a strikingly angular, hexagonal design which embodies clear influences of architectural and geometric styling. The dramatic angles of the frame are combined with Silhouette’s passion for a weightless and minimalist style.
Employing an inimitable cut-out and print lens technology, the exclusive frame comes in a series of dynamic colour contrasts: an on- trend metallic copper is paired with a summery orange hue, a warm magenta is boldly merged with a sophisticated grey shade, a neutral frame with perfectly mixed gold and caramel hues, while the final design features a vibrant brass rim outline with a cool, minty lens. The collection was launched on the catwalk at Berlin Fashion Week in January.
