Know-how and all-Italian taste are at the basis of the new X-IDE collection presented by Immagine98 at MIDO14
With colour combinations and the continued use of avant-garde materials, the new collection includes 13 vision models in plastic, metal or combinations, 2 kids’ models and 5 models with sun lenses. For a year, the brand’s stylistic and technological research has focused on the development of temples with a special sheath in silicone. In this respect, a step ahead was taken this year with the decision to apply to the temples not just one sheath but three different silicone coatings so that user could play with the resulting colour effects.
Stitching with nylon thread on a steel front is back: a style and colour choice in two variants – tone-on-tone for a softer effect or high impact contrasting colours! This hand-stitched eyewear totally conveys a capacity for absolutely unique craftsmanship and the combination of technical ability with artistic talent. Some models incorporate important technology that includes covering metal parts with transparent resin. This completely innovative technique gives the visual effect of metal but the comfort and feel of plastic.
Maximum creative expression – a cross between cubism and design – is found in two new models with several levels of milled plastic that is laminated specifically to obtain the desired colour. Unusual and amusing effects are created by this play of levels and colours. The X-IDE collection also makes room for a small series of models dedicated to teens – eye-wear in sizes and with calibers that are suitable for smaller faces and in the colours and materials that are most suitable for this age group. The collection is completed with a capsule collection of 5 sun models with strong personalities. Bright colours and details of exceptionally high quality are combined with mirrored or graduated sun lenses that are either tone-on-tone with the frame or in a contrasting colour. There’s no longer any need to show the logo: X-IDE is instantly recognisable because of its signature details that don’t go unnoticed.
