Blackfin – Cape May in Barcelona

Barcelona, a city of beautiful architecture and huge contradictions in style, where the historical buildings can go hand in hand with modern architecture, this Spanish city is constantly evolving. The same could be said about the latest styles of Blackfin. The constant evolution of the Italian brand could be clearly seen in “The Black Diamond”,  their new booth at Mido, but also in their new line of frames.

Today, Jasmin is wearing their model Cape May, a pure titanium frame with a colourful front that is made from a single block of titanium. As usual, this frame comes with their super flexible beta titanium temples. The cat-eye sunglass shape is given emphasis by a highly original choice of colours: black and gold, grey and pink, pink and two different shades of violet.

The Spring 2019 collection displays the total Blackfin aesthetic vision in which the sophisticated mood of the new communications campaign and the new stand for Mido are faithfully reflected in its design.

Such stylistic maturity is intended to mark an essential stage, rather than the finishing point, in the identity- building journey undertaken by the brand, in other words a milestone in its history. Titanium, always the distinctive feature of Blackfin eyewear, remains the element to be moulded and the page on which a new chapter in this authentic Italian story is written. New frames expressing the essence of Blackfin, free from the stereotypes of fashion and passing trends.

This natural consciousness translates into a collection with well-defined lines and original colour effects, a combination of hi-tech know-how and glamour, capable of celebrating every aspect of a piece of eyewear, the signature of this company’s sense of elegance and flair for innovation.
