“Stare At The Sun”
Los Angeles, CA – Los Angeles-based womens brand Wildfox Couture launches its premiere Wildfox Sun sunglass collection for Summer 2012. The range was designed and developed by eyewear designer Benjamin Montoya of Benjamin Eyewear, who was inspired to create “A classic, well thought out collection heavily influenced and balanced with the palette and energy of Wildfox.”
The frames are handmade using a mixture of both acetate and metal, the acetate pieces comprise approximately 70% of the collection while metal and metal-acetate combination pieces make up the balance. The primary lens materials used vary from solid to gradient color options in grey, rose, and brown, while some are either traditional mirror or multi colored mirror coated.
The “Classic Fox” is an oversized wayfarer-style frame made of heavy acetate and is offered in black, matte black, pink, and tortoise colors. A “Classic Mirror Fox” group offers a variety of Classic Fox frames with lenses in blue multi colored mirror, pink/purple or gold mirror choices. The “Juliet” is essentially the Classic Fox style, but with a miniature star pattern etched across the top of the frame and is offered in matte black, red, pink, tortoise, and cream. Both “Bel Air” and “Twiggy” styles feature a modern take on a retro design with round acetate frames in black, pink, or white. Each of the round metal “Starstruck” and “Winona” frames come in either gold or silver with or without a star design embedded in the lenses.
