Safilo, Designer Marcel Wanders Collaborate on New Collection


(Press Release) Italian eyewear manufacturer Safilo will announce an exclusive eyewear collection created by designer Marcel Wanders at the upcoming Salone del Mobile 2016 in Milan, April 12-16. The collection will be on display at the Safilo Showroom in Milano, at Via Manzoni 38.

The collection combines high-tech production, technological innovation and a humanistic design aesthetic. “I want to make you wonder and bring a little excitement to your day,” says Marcel Wanders. The collection will be released in the spring of 2016.

“Marcel Wanders’ creativity brings Safilo's historical product design leadership to life with an inquisitive touch on the present day," says Luisa Delgado, CEO of Safilo Group. "The result is an invitation to explore, with your eyes, the wonders of sensitivity and technique."

This collection is designed for both men and women. Six versions of optical glasses in different color schemes are available. The lightweight metal frames are available in a variety of colors, including royal blue, clover green, merlot red, midnight black and amethyst purple. These tones contrast with the patterned engraved metal (in golden, champagne, gun or chrome) on the inside of the frame. For women’s eyewear, Wanders developed special floral and feminine engravings, while the unisex models have a more geometric and cosmopolitan design.
