Luxe Italian label, Fendi presents Iridia, a new range of sunglasses that breathe a strong and sophisticated personality. This new collection celebrates the Maison’s timeless elegance with a burst of creative designs that speaks of the brand’s vaunted DNA.
Different materials are melted together in a modern architectural shape: the feeling of lightness is conveyed by the free lenses and the slim metal temples with their surprising geometric and flat design, beautifully underlined by refined enamel colours.
More than the eyewear models that appeared on the runway, Fendi also has a dedicated eyewear collection, showcasing exclusive sunglasses and optical frames every season. For Spring/Summer 2014, it features unique shapes and iconic detailing, such as the label;s monogram, the legendary striped “PEQUIN” motif and the celebrated 2Jours decoration. The color palette consists of refined shades and edgy colour contrasts highlighted by an alluring interplay of materials, jewel-like details and shaded or mirrored lenses.
The new collection is now available in stores now.
Here are the some of Men’s Folio’s picks:
FROM THE RUNWAY
The cat-eye and retro-inspired shape frame in Optyl – a registered trademark for an ultra-lightweight plastic material with unparalleled colour effects – is highlighted by soft and round lines, enhanced by pyramidal oversize crystals surrounding the lenses, for a truly magnetic effect.
These large, butterfly-shaped flat metal sunglasses flaunt an ultra-lightweight, essential feel and smooth silhouette.
These acetate sunglasses and this optical frame have softly rounded cat-eye and square shapes decorated with the brand’s iconic black/tobacco striped “PEQUIN” motif on the initial part of the temples, perfectly combined with a precious metal hinge detail.
