Blackfin launches AURA, the new collection of beta titanium frames with acetate rims. The Blackfin core material interacts with and is illuminated by a powerful perimeter of light and color crafted in Italian cellulose acetate. The summer release presents five new styles with acetate rims that contrast brilliantly with the beta titanium structure, achieving the perfect balance of techno-glamour that breathes life into true objects of design, in authentic Blackfin style.
It includes one men’s squared style Dunkirk, and Palos, a more unisex pantos-inspired round frame. The range of colors for both styles includes light tobacco, honey, army green, glossy black, dark tobacco and transparent, paired with the structural frame in black, gun metal gray, olive green or metallic blue. Palos also comes in a distinctly feminine pink with dark tobacco/pink rims. The ladies’ frames are graceful, with rims that shape-shift from the soft silhouette of Glace Bay into a rounder feline (Florida Bay) or more squared (Port Elizabeth) cat-eye. Here too, the color palette tends toward warm, sophisticated colors, with everything from transparent acetates to florals, solid colors or gradient shadings paired with beta titanium in black, champagne gold, dark blue, brown, powder pink, burgundy red and bright silver. All the Blackfin AURA frames are fitted with the new tilting nose pads and latest-gen ergonomic-design Swordfish temple tips.
