Silhouette, the Austrian-based global market leader in premium rimless eyewear, has once again pushed the envelope with their unique, innovative product category: Accent Rings. This design enables Silhouette to combine the best of both worlds: a distinctive, full-rim look with all the benefits of rimless eyewear. Ultra-sleek, beautifully colored Accent Rings give the lenses a punctuated contour so that wearers have more ways of expressing their style. This design masterpiece has already won four design awards, and Silhouette is now enhancing its often-copied Lite Spirit Accent Rings collection.
There’s something for everyone with this new collection: whether it’s modern performers interested in technology, architecture, art, and culture, or fashion enthusiasts who want to make a statement with a pair of unique and striking eyewear. Lite Spirit Accent Rings weigh in at just 0.08 ounces and is the epitome of lightness and minimalism. The flowing line at the front accentuates the shape of the lenses and continues seamlessly along the sides of the temples so that the front and temples form one cohesive design. The no-maintenance snap hinge, which is virtually invisible, is perfectly integrated into the design. “Our Lite Spirit Accent Rings represent pure lightness, offering a very unique eyewear look. A real Silhouette love story” says Design Director Roland Keplinger, when summing up the concept.
The many different combinations of shapes and colors is a true highlight of this collection. Eyecare Professionals can select their perfect set from a large assortment of options, tailoring it to their consumers. Eight shapes and eight color combinations can be mixed and matched to create 64 options that cover virtually every variation imaginable. The different lens shapes allow you to choose between bold, contrasting colors and contours or opt for softer, balanced versions. The eye-catching combination of navy blue and gold is a standout of the collection that plays up fashion and jewelry trends that are very of the moment.
Founded in 1964, Silhouette is the global leader in premium rimless eyewear. In 1999, the family-operated company revolutionized the glasses industry with an innovative screwless, hingeless, and rimless model called Titan Minimal Art. This innovative design – made from start to finish in Austria and weighing only 1.8 grams – was unlike anything the world had ever seen. All Silhouette glasses are made from the highest quality materials using cutting-edge technology and the finest handcraftsmanship. In fact, around 80% of the build is carried out by hand. This ensures the glasses deliver best-in-class comfort to a global market of more than 100 countries on five continents and in space. With 50 patents and over 100 design awards under its belt, Silhouette has a relentless commitment to quality: Over 100 quality control checks must be carried out before a single pair of glasses leaves its headquarters in Linz, Austria.
Headquartered in Linz, Austria, Silhouette International Schmied AG is the world’s leading manufacturer of premium eyewear, with over 1,400 employees worldwide. With 13 international subsidiaries, the family-owned company is the market leader in rimless eyewear, which has brought it acclaim and success around the world. Exports account for 95% of its production. Silhouette eyewear is available in over 100 countries. Since 2017, the company has been a full-service provider of frames and lenses – made in Austria.
