Combining superior craftsmanship and bold character, the two initial Linda Farrow x Paco Rabanne styles convey relaxed luxury, defining the face with striking shapes and color.
Donyale is an oversized, ultra-curvy, silhouette composed of two tonal frames layered back-to-back for an arty, sophisticated look. Colorways include black and white; ocean and sky blue; and burgundy and red. An eyelet in 22 carat, gold-plated titanium adorns the temple as signature hardware.
Moe, meanwhile, comes across with unisex allure; its thick frame hand-polished for a high-shine effect. Once again, a large, monogrammed eyelet accents the temple to signal the collaboration; this model comes in black, white and pale pink – each pair transmitting a nonchalant rock attitude.
Handmade in Japan, both styles are sculpted in Italian cellulose acetate – plant fibers derived from renewable resources. Moreover, the black acetate consists of recycled material. Lenses made from nylon offer 100% UVA and UVB protection and include an anti-glare coating.
This exciting launch finds expression in a campaign by Quentin Saunier that winks at the classic film, Thelma & Louise. Driving through Mexico in a vintage convertible, three friends savour the freedom of the open road and the empowerment that results from trusting their instincts. Sunglasses on and celebrating their womanhood, they encounter each day with a stronger sense of self.
