Capturing true style at first glance, the new X-IDE collection presented at Silmo 2013 is dedicated to those who want to express their unique personality. Silica, resin, or nylon stitching are used to create new frames and vibrant colours combined with a strong impact.
X-IDE continues to impress in the area of technical research and with work performed by skilled craftsmen who perpetuate the tradition of ‘Made in Italy’. The application of special acetate sheets over a steel frame for the model ‘Rear’ produces an unusual visual effect giving the impression of a plastic frame, while being made of light metal base.
The detailed study of chromatic colour gave life to the ‘Stem’ model, originally a limited edition. Through a special technique, a photographic image is transferred to the frame creating the Scottish tartan motif. Transparent resin that covers the glasses and adds a spark of originality emphasizes the pattern of the fabric. The sunglasses also have colourful lenses.
Some previous best sellers like ‘Factory and Urban’ are in this collection with new mirrored lenses and tri-layered acetate to create and define the rainbow-like X-IDE collection.
X-IDE frames are distributed by Mood Eyewear.
