Ad Lib Eyewear // Live in Colour

Ad Lib light titanium glasses, for the young and young at heart, deliver an outstanding level of style, quality and comfort. Japanese technology meets European design and the latest colour trends in understated, urban looks that men and women will love to be seen in.

New Ad Lib glasses catch all eyes with their fashion-forward design aesthetic. Sporty men’s frames feature simple fronts and distinctive, contrasting 3-D temples with athletic and geometric influences. Contrasts inspire feminine women’s frames too, with shiny matt pairings or elegant fronts with bold geometric and Art Deco temples. The hip, all-titanium Ad Lib collection offers a variety of modern shapes to suit every face and style.

Women’s styles:

Shiny matt contrasts team up with iconic 3d temples

Women’s Ad Lib glasses delight with their contrasting finishes and iconic temples. Gorgeous new colours on simple frame fronts stand out in shiny metallic expressions. Matt or shiny surfaces with geometric 3D structures add volume and provide a counterbalance to the otherwise clean lines (AB3284 and AB3285). All women’s models are made of pure titanium with beta-titanium hinges or temples.


Sleek art deco style inspires decorative temples

Art Deco, popularised in architecture and furniture in the 1920s and 1930s, influences two new women’s frames (AB3286 and AB3287). This classy style’s streamlined sophistication is found in embellished temples with sandblasted parts as well as in geometric forms and matted fronts, which add volume to the pared-back frame lines.


Men’s styles:

Sporty glasses frames display vivid contrasts

Men’s Ad Lib frames are all about energy. Firstly, square, rectangular, aviator and pantos shapes are made of high-quality titanium, ensuring more vitality through lightweight and flexible wearing comfort.
Then, athletic design influences are found in dynamic 3D frame forms and vivid colour accents and contrasts. All men’s models are made of pure titanium with beta-titanium hinges or temples.


Forest green: Restores vitality & style

Growth, freshness, harmony: that’s the spirit of forest green, the celebrated colour trend of the new season. Each Ad Lib men’s style features a model that picks up on this cool shade in handsome temple expressions.


About Ad Lib Eyewear
