Silhouette’s Clubmaster design, part of the Urban Fusion collection, has always been minimalistic and ultra-light. For years, this full-rim frame has inspired city dwellers all over the world, becoming their go-to eyewear. Now, the Austrian premium eyewear manufacturer is thrilled to expand this multi-award-winning and very successful design. The sophisticated mix of materials at the front makes the collection even more unique: the striking brow line at the top is made of colorful SPX®+, a durable, ultra-light, high-tech material developed by Silhouette. The SPX®+ seamlessly connects to high-quality titanium rims. Sleek, titanium temples connect harmoniously to the front, where the color of the lower contour is reflected in the titanium.
The full-rim Urban Fusion collection is contemporary yet with an exciting, retro feel. The design at the sides is characterized by a modern, dynamic flow. Easily adjustable, shortened temples provide a perfect fit, while the maintenance-free, screwless snap hinges allow for easy handling. “What makes the Urban Fusion stand out is its unique mix of materials and harmonious design that plays with proportions,” explains Design Director Roland Keplinger. “It’s a well-balanced product with contemporary shapes and matching colors.”
Silhouette has brought out four new lens shapes for the Clubmaster style: two for men and two for women. The shapes are timeless, complement a variety of faces, and are combined with exciting color effects on the front. Today’s modern consumer can opt for a slightly deeper, cooler, and more casual lens shape with stronger contours for added character.
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.
