Nothing is a shade too big for Silhouette – 28/01/05

The Ocean Blue collection aims to enhance the “dramatic chic and avant-garde appeal” of the upcoming Spring/Summer collections while the Golf Collection 2005 combines practicality and top styling qualities

AUSTRIA. Ocean Blue, the latest sunwear collection from Silhouette, aims to enhance the “dramatic chic and avant-garde appeal” of the Spring/Summer 2005 fashion collections.

Size – and more of it – is de rigueur for the coming season’s accessories. Like most of the jewellery and leathergoods previewed so far, Ocean Blue offers huge, bold models in a variety of shades to complement the overall look of confidence, femininity and sophistication.

There are a number of models to choose from.

Model 4050, showcased at the Los Angeles Fashion Week in October, is a pair of super-lightweight full-rim sunglasses in the colour of lava stone. The white line print on the black eye rims and temple sets off the shape and the contrasting base colour.

The TMA Sunwear Model 8572 with oversized lenses and Model 3175 go together with skimpy beach outfits and also with urbanwear.

As big but more conservative is the Model 3181 Elegance Diva in rose – sunglasses which Silhouette says exude “smart chic and timeless elegance”. Smaller but no less daring is the modern Model 4049 in shades such as sea grass and kiwi green.

Futura 1378, “the most progressive model of the current collection”, makes no apologies for its oversized lenses and bright colouring. Equally, the Model 1375, with its big eye rims and new bridge design, guarantees the wearer a look that is more than an eyeful.

Also new from Silhouette is the Golf Collection 2005 which comprises the Titan line. The Light Stabilising Technology (LST) featured in the sunglasses makes them ideal for outdoor leisure pursuits. The Titan Translucent Model 6498 recently won the iF product design award from the Industrie Forum Design Hanover for its top styling qualities and eyewear technology.
