True to their innovative spirit and specialist techniques to create refined surfaces and finishes, Tree Spectacles present optical models Malia, Dite and Ada, a series distinguished by technical precision and mastery of Italian artisan style.
Lightweight yet bold in structure, the new frames reinvent the concept of 3 dimensionality with playful contrasts in texture and surface and elegant interpretations of the transparency trend. The fronts of the frames have a refined sculptural quality, and the intriguing two-tone effects create a play of light. A natural colour palette with tones of amber, dark green and dark grey is punctuated by bright translucent red and a magnificent delicate tone of lilac.
The three new styles in the Acetate Bold Series have the distinctive 5mm thick fronts – a signature feature of the TREE label.
Model MALIA in the BOLD SERIES has a striking square eye shape with an architectural construction. Parts of the frame front (red and lilac colorways) have undergone a very skillful laser technique to create the opaque surface of the inner rim. The frame also comes in transparent amber and a solid classic black.
The strong square statement profile of the men’s model DITE in the BOLD SERIES offers a fine example of the trend for thick-rimmed acetates this season. The frame comes in solid black, translucent dark green, and the beautifully crafted two-tone shiny/opaque contrast in dark grey/light grey and black/light grey.
The third frame in the series – model ADA – has a confident, rectangular eye shape with a flattened brow line. The frame comes in the two-tone shiny/opaque contrast in black/grey, and green/grey as well as transparent red and transparent amber.
Marco Barp, Co-Founder of TREE SPECTACLES, has grown up in a family of eyewear producers in Belluno, Italy. His first collection launched at MIDO in 2012, the result of intense R&D to create niche ‘Made in Italy’ products in layers of wood ‘sandwiched’ with carbon fiber – a design innovation that was quickly praised (and patented) for its lightness, comfort, flexibility, and unique beauty.
Today the company produces a wide variety of collections including luxury and design series in wood/carbon fiber, buffalo horn, titanium, and bio acetate.
