Blackfin – Sunset Reef

Blackfin is breaking new Ground

There are those who follow the paths traced by others and those who break new ground. Italian titanium eyewear brand BLACKFIN is most certainly one of the latter, as you can clearly see in this incredibly well sculpted frame model “Sunset Reef”, which Amy is wearing at todays TEF shoot.

Playing with layers

The design of this frame features a slab of material milled at two levels, creating a two-dimensional, bas-relief effect. The result is a highly original double-frame effect emphasized by the dual colour scheme with a cloud white/metallic light brown frame with pale gold mirrored lenses. The shape evolves in a retro yet futuristic dimension with strong urban connotations traced in the construction features of the frames.
