Premium Austrian eyewear manufacturer, Silhouette, combines two of its innovations for the first time ever to create new shapes that are as stunning as they are unmistakably Silhouette. Designed to make a statement, the New York Sky collection features a 23-carat gold-plated metal frame that artfully mirrors the curve of the lenses, attached to the frame at the end piece. Positioned behind the frame are Silhouette’s hallmark Accent Rings. Made from wafer-thin SPX®+, an ultralight yet extremely durable high-tech material, these multi-color rings appear to float in mid-air around the lenses, while adding contour to the shapes, creating a striking 3D look. “These sunglasses are all about elegance, boldness, and urban cool,” explains Roland Keplinger, Design Director at Silhouette. Meanwhile, new hinge technology that is fully integrated into the lens makes the glasses extremely easy to handle.
Inspired by New York
The name New York Sky says it all: the collection features a 3D layered look with contrasting luxurious matte and shiny surfaces. Inspired by the seamless transitions between the stone, glass, and steel that make up New York City’s infamous skyline, these exclusive, elegant glasses offer the same wow factor that you get from taking a helicopter ride over the Big Apple. The New York Sky collection’s oversized, glam frames offer a head-turning appearance while delivering Silhouette’s signature lightness.
The perfect lenses to lift your mood
Silhouette’s patented Light Management Technology® offers clearer contrasts, 100% UV protection, and a pleasant brightening effect. With an increased transmittance of yellow tones, the wearer experiences a warmer image and more vivid colors, causing less strain on the eyes. Connoisseurs take note: the New York Sky collection sees Silhouette strive for the highest quality in every respect and every single detail. The sky really is the limit.
