Article One has announced its Autumn 2022 Optical offerings to include nine new styles featuring two materials. The eyewear company combined two juxtaposing aesthetics in its seasonal assortment – five minimalist stainless steel frames and four monochromatic, bold acetate frames. “We combined earthy autumnal acetate colorways with elegant minimalist metals to create a contrast between materials,” says founder West Stoody. “I am really excited about this release and to add these new styles to our core collection.” The brand’s collection is highlighted by its stainless steel frames that draw inspiration from two best-selling Article One collections – All-Metal and Windsor. Combining contemporary, metal silhouettes with playful, vintage influences produced five timelessly designed and interesting wraps. The five stainless steel models each feature two colorways with a thin reverse windsor wrap that adds a subtle detail of colour. Also in the collection are four eye-catching premium acetate frames ranging in shape from butterfly, square, rounded, and all featuring three-barrel hinges and OBE Injection Safety Screws. The four acetate models lean into thicker acetate to create the sense of weighty luxury. Each of the nine frames in the line are constructed from the high quality materials and are handmade in Italy.
