Wes Gordon Debuts SS2016 Collection
A new perspective on eyewear debuted during this New York Fashion Week at Milk Studios. Wes Gordon, one of the brightest young designers in the fashion scenario, has joined Silhouette to create a special edition of the iconic Titan Minimal Art frame that went down the runway along with the designer’s latest women’s wear collection today.
The collection, inspired by a modern romantic sensibility, was infused with movement, energy and Victorian detailing, embodying demure strength. The clothes were perfectly complemented by the star accessory; the Special Edition Wes Gordon for Silhouette features one signature style in four colorways: nude brown and classic grey, classic green and – Wes’s favorite hue – ocean blue.
Each circular lens is meticulously crafted from a single piece of glass that is hand-sanded around the perimeter, then needle-painted with a contrast color – a new technique that Silhouette is debuting with this collection. The result is a beautiful pair of sunglasses combining retro glamour and expressive futurism. Designed to amplify a woman’s personal style and sense of confidence, these ultra-light frames do not mask the wearer but rather serve as a stylish adornment. The versatile eyewear is equally at home on the runway, the red carpet or for everyday, and can also be worn by sartorially savvy men.
The Special Edition Wes Gordon for Silhouette will be available in selected shops worldwide from January 2016. Stay tuned for more information on silhouette.com.
