Marcel Wanders launches Unseen Collection for Safilo
”On the inside of the glasses we created delicate artwork
as a reflection of our most beautiful self” – Marcel Wanders
Discover the new collection of eyewear by Safilo & Marcel Wanders at Salone del Mobile 2016!
Amsterdam, 11 April, 2016 – At Salone del Mobile 2016 in Milan (April 12-16), Safilo, the internationally renowned designer Marcel Wanders launches his new eyewear collection in partnership with leading optical frames and homonymous brand Safilo Group. Marcel Wanders’ distinctive Safilo frames will be on display at the Safilo showroom in Milano at Via Manzoni 38.
This special project evidences the importance and the enduring strong values of Safilo’s very own brand: highest levels of quality and technical innovation, comfort, reliability and durability, with premium design.
The collection is the result of a collaboration that combines meticulously detailed high-tech production, technological innovation and an elegant humanistic design aesthetic that is sure to surprise. “I want to make you wonder and bring a little excitement to your day”, says Marcel Wanders.
This smart eyewear is designed for both men and woman to enjoy. A choice of three sunglasses and six versions of optical glasses in different colour schemes ensures that the user can fully express his own style. The exceptionally comfortable and lightweight frames are available in a variation of colours, including royal blue, clover green, merlot red, midnight black and amethyst purple. These tones wonderfully contrast with the patterned engraved metal (in golden, champagne, gun or chrome) on the inside of the frame.
Intricate and beautiful artwork organically spreads throughout the inside of the frame. For women eyewear Marcel Wanders developed special floral and feminine engravings, while the unisex models have a more geometric and cosmopolitan design. These inscriptions act as a hidden and secretive reflection of one’s most beautiful self.
The collection will be released in Spring 2016.
