The new optical frames in the Blackfin One collection for the Fall-Winter 22-23 season embody the company’s quintessential production philosophy that has made titanium its core style element. The design is uncluttered, in an interplay of elegant proportions and bi-layer thicknesses accentuated by vivid colors or softer gradients that highlight the fine technical skills of artisan production carried out inside its own building in the Dolomite Mountains of Italy.
Both Green Hill, a unisex panto, and Ellis Beach, with its slightly elongated cat-eye top rim, reveal timeless shapes. Audacious thicknesses and bi-layers light up with new colors – like mint green, lilac, or shades of blue from sky to turquoise.
Contrasting gradient colorways and metallics lend importance to the fronts of two more slender styles: Crystal Cove, with rims slightly flattened in the lower part, and the hexagonal Dana Point. Here, too, the blue/pink, purple/lilac or light blue/blue pairings play up the silhouettes of the frames.
The concept of color – a common thread throughout the entire collection, in its gradient and contrasting interpretations – is alive and well in Westhampton and Swan Point. The former, a square men’s frame, glows with hints of orange, red and green; the latter, an elongated oval, is a classic shape upgraded with an array of lilacs, reds, pinks, lavenders, and greens.
All of the styles in the Blackfin One line – hypoallergenic, 100% bio-compatible and nickel-free – come with Tilting nose pads in medical-grade PVC and adjustable, ergonomically designed Swordfish temple tips.
