This season marks the launch of one of Haffmans & Neumeister’s most innovative and technically sophisticated eyewear lines to date, The Italic Collection. The Italic Collection introduces the brand’s newly developed 0.7 mm material thickness, thereby ushering in a milestone in the evolution of the flat sheet metal frame. Characterized not only by an improved fit and wearing comfort, the new Italic Collection will offer a carefully curated range of styles that are distinctive in their design language and execution.
Handcrafted from premium-quality stainless steel and Italian acetate, the soon-to-be-released Italic Collection is putting a fresh twist on the classic Windsor ring. For this explicitly feminine range, Haffmans & Neumeister has fused its signature minimalist aesthetic with playful accents of pastel-toned acetate. An expansion of the permanent product portfolio, the collection explores the brand’s overarching theme of typography further, this time introducing contours akin to those of italics. The collection launches with five scene-stealing Optical styles, all of which are adjustable and equipped with Haffmans & Neumeister’s proprietary rivet hinge. Here are three of the wonderful designs.
Twiggy – Upswept and out of this world, Twiggy is equal parts Grace Kelly glamor and atomic era aesthetics. Perfect for jetting around the Côte d’Azur in your flying convertible.
Coco – A 1960s secretary archetype playing with the carnal exuberance of the 1980s.
Coco is perfection paired with your favorite A-line dress, just as much as it is with Jean-Paul Gaultier’s conical bra corset, made famous by Madonna.
O- Aptly named, O, is based on that very letter, and italicized for emphasis. The frame features a unique line-weight that varies from thick–to–thin, similar to the delicate turn of brush in calligraphy, and equally elegant.
