Clear Your State of Mind this Summer with Crystal Acetates
This summer, it's all about the clear acetate frames for a modern, fun and sophisticated styling option.
Luckily, we have a great selection to choose from in the SOLBOU collection... here are 5 of some of our favourites to help you decide:
1. HAN KJØBENHAVN // TIMELESS
These 'Timeless' frames from Han Kjøbenhavn combine a crystal clear acetate on the body with arms crafted in their signature 'Amber' Tortoiseshell for extra intrigue and effortless urban flair. Not only do they look awesome, all HAN frames are finished with lenses from legendary optics manufacturer Carl Zeiss for full UV protection and superb vision clarity.
2. SUNDAY SOMEWHERE // KITEYS
Our Aussie friends at Sunday Somewhere are the go-to designer for relaxed Summer style. This standout version of their best-selling Kiteys frame combines their crystal acetate with eye-catching Pink-Revo Mirror lenses. The effect the lenses has when reflecting within the frames is quite mesmerising & screams to us: Buy these; give up everything; win big in Vegas...
3. Finlay & Co. // Hudson
These elegant and sleek 'Hudson' frames from our fellow Londoners at Finlay & Co. are a perfect unisex option for those looking to add some minimalist style to their wardrobe. This version features a 'Champagne' tinted clear acetate and also comes with a pair of optional clip-on / clip-off gold mirror lenses- the perfect way to change up styles in an instant and contend with the highest levels of sunlight.
4. R.T.CO // IORA
Berlin based, R.T.CO have added a great selection of vivid acetates to their SS16 collection. We love this 'Straw Clear' version of their best selling unisex frame, Iora. This pair is finished off perfectly with a completely flat, zero-base lens for a subtle nod to early 20th century eyewear production. In short, they are a modern, ultra-cool and perfectly crafted piece of eyewear.
5. Taylor Morris // RollRight
The Taylor Morris 'RollRight' is fast becoming on of the most popular frames on SOLBOU for both men and women. This bold colourway combines a matte crystal acetate, with gold metal detailing and an instantly cooling blue lens. Add to this the on-trend, gold double nose bridge and you've got one of the best looking & glamorous pieces of eyewear for the summer.... Makes us dream of long weekends in Santorini and cooling off in an ocean-view infinity pool... (please)
