With #DENIMEYE and a beguiling mix of different materials and colours, Diesel’s new optical collection for the autumn-winter season is modern with an unconventional appeal to each eyewear
For the Autumn-Winter 2015/16 collection, Diesel converges denim into eyewear with the #DENIMEYE collection along with new shapes that are extended and enriched via innovative techniques and taken to the next level with materials and colours. The collection seems to have an unconventional appeal that is distinctive, perfect for urban fashion disciples who love to freshen up their style with renewed personality.
These new optical frames, with their easy-to-wear, rectangular shape, draw heavily on the sunglass collection. The frames are available in black, Havana or blue with Diesel’s signature treated denim detailing for a result that expertly marries the concepts of design and practicality. Available in a number of colour combinations: denim embellished by flecks of coloured paint with black acetate; dark blue denim with vintage Havana acetate; light blue denim with semi-transparent blue acetate and green camouflage denim with blue acetate.
The broad, pilot shape and minimalistic profile of the men’s frame strikes a perfect balance between vintage style and contemporary influences. The acetate used is subjected to state-of-the-art processing techniques to give the entire model the appearance of wood, thus accentuating the retro appeal of the front section and iconic double bridge. A fine metal insert rests on either temple, giving pride of place to the brand’s logo, completing a model available in the classic colour options of black, Havana or military green.
These optical frames are characterised by their seductive cat-eye shape and brilliant pop-art detailing – perfect for contemporary women who know how to apply a sense of humour to their own femininity. The light-weight structure is characterised by an unusual vintage-style wood effect and further enhanced by shiny metal interests positioned on the temples. The wide range of colours available oscillates from traditional black to fresh aquamarine, red, purple and
This #DENIMEYE model brings a feminine interpretation to the squared shape with these more close-fitting frames. The denim coating of the front section combines with acetates in a number of different colours, such as Havana with black denim, semi-transparent crystal with blue or red denim, black acetate with dark blue, grey camouflage or paint-flecked denim. An insert on the temples bears the brand’s logo, further underlining the frames’ affinity with the inimitable Diesel identity.
Materials are combined expertly and volumes contrast to captivating effect here, lending a truly retro appeal to the #DENIMEYE unisex frames. The rounded shape of the front section is enhanced by the perfect marriage of denim-coated acetate top section and sleek metal bottom section, while fine, shiny detailing draws the eye to the temples where a denim insert bears the brand’s logo. Available in total black, dark blue denim, Havana or light blue and black acetate.
Pared-down shaping and faded nuances define the look of these broad, feminine frames. The squared silhouette is made from sleek, matte metal and is available in total black or in gradient versions of blue, bronze or military green where the colour fades to black towards the sides of the front section and parts of the temple where the brand’s logo holds pride of place. The sense of belonging to the Diesel brand identity is emphasised by the D initial which is printed onto the eminently wearable temples in acetate.
The broad, squared shape and casual appeal of these frames is once again rendered unique by the fusion of denim and acetate. The sleek temples are enhanced by the addition of metal inserts, into which the brand’s name is engraved. A smorgasbord of colour combinations complete the model with black and black, dark blue denim with dark Havana, light blue paired with vintage Havana, red with black acetate and green or grey camouflage paired with dark grey or black respectively.
