Silhouette presents The Wave, its new, premium rimless collection designed to embody that carefree feeling of lightness. The Wave pulls influences from the joyous feeling of being on a boat with a gentle breeze on your face, and the sun on your skin. The horizon lies ahead and your mind is full of ideas; this is what being relaxed and carefree is all about. The feeling that anything is possible and life is a breeze is embodied in the minimalistic and sleek design of The Wave. With this new model, the market leader in premium rimless eyewear from Austria is targeting consumers who appreciate casual, stylish, and exceptionally lightweight eyewear for work or leisure, and those who enjoy subtle details too. The Wave has four stunning, highlight models with tinted lenses and an impressive new multicolor-gradient effect that lends character to the design.
Sophisticated and distinguished details
The gradient effect of the lenses is complimented by a multicolored finish on the ultra-light temples. These are also given a special, metallic-looking color gradient that is reminiscent of the foamy crest of a wave or a ray of sunshine running along the temples. The highlight of each temple is an exquisite titanium ring. Sophisticated and elegantly designed details like these make The Wave stand out in a whole sea of eyewear. The temples come in four on-trend colors for 2023: Lightness in a shade of lavender, Trust in a shade of orange, Courage in a blue shade and Independence in a shade of green. Fresh colors and new, exciting shapes make Silhouette’s rimless eyewear irresistible and an absolute must-have.
Timeless appeal and harmonious design
“The stylish design builds on the successful Silhouette design families, emphasizing distinctive elements,” says Design Director Roland Keplinger. “Clean lines and a sleek profile make for timeless appeal. And when combined with finely balanced styling, we have a creative winner that is comfortable to wear.” Maintenance-free, snap hinges make the eyewear user-friendly, and easily adjustable temples ensure a perfect fit. With The Wave, you can experience the feeling of weightlessness anytime, anywhere.
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.
