Austrian eyewear designer, Silhouette, has widened its well-loved Illusion Nylor collection, with a light and modern taken on the half-rim design. Executing a minimalist, chic style, the new styles are perfect for those looking to subtly inject elegant refinement into their everyday lives.
Inspired by the graceful subtlety of minimalist design, Silhouette combines sophisticated details with its panache for expertly crafting lightweight eyewear. This weightless feeling is embodied at the heart of its manufacturing; the glasses are made from SPX®+, Silhouette’s unique durable, ultra-lightweight material, making the frames extremely light and flexible.
Silhouette’s focus on minimalism, however, doesn’t minimize its commitment to an eye-catching aesthetic. Wearers can choose between two distinct lens shapes, with glasses coming in either clean-cut rectangular or more delicate oval butterfly shapes. Both styles use precise lines that seamlessly merge the frames with rimless bottoms – a style that has defined the Illusion Nylor collection for decades. The bridge of the nose also features two double lines emphasizing this feeling that the lens line merges seamlessly into the frame. Available in a range of finishes and colors, wearers can choose from either a glossy or matte style which comes in traditional colors such as gold and silver or bolder options such as an eye-catching blue.
Each model can be custom-fitted at Silhouette’s in-house lens lab with lenses from Silhouette Vision Sensation®. Silhouette’s Vision Sensation® lenses are crafted specifically to complement its frames, adopting the same level of dedication to high-quality design and manufacturing it does with its frames. SVS® means Silhouette is able to produce lenses that are tailor-made to fit flawlessly with its frames. Taking Silhouette’s bespoke frames to the next level, SVS® enables Silhouette to provide premium comfort and vision for the wearer from one single source.
SVS® helps opticians to provide an extraordinarily individual consultation experience as the corresponding app allows partners to choose from hundreds of different lens shapes at the touch of a button, allowing customers to see how the lenses will look in their personal prescription.
