Material Mix in Its Most Beautiful Form

At this year's opti, Rodenstock is presenting an expansion to the successful BALDESSARINI spectacles collection, which will include 15 new models. The eight sunglasses and seven correction frames will thrill with exciting colour and material combinations, innovative designs and high-quality workmanship. Hence, the latest spectacles are completely in the spirit of the brand’s philosophy: style with substance, a desire for individuality, a passion for quality and a love of detail.

Glamour with Metal and Leather
In this season, BALDESSARINI Eyewear is showing a very special reinterpretation of the timeless pilot sunglasses. The frames are made of metal, and the sides are completely covered with the finest sheep leather. Exquisite colour combinations like light-gold with copper, dark-blue with black and palladium with white leather sides – the highlight of the collection – and also colour-matched graduated tint lenses emphasise the exclusivity of the spectacles and make them into an extravagant eye-catcher. For enthusiasts of classical designs, there is a model with a rounded lens shape. Spectacles wearers with a preference for a more angular silhouette can choose a sporty Carré shape.

High-Contrast Symbiosis of Metal and Acetate

The new additions to the sunglasses from BALDESSARINI include both simple as well as striking models made of acetate and metal. Stylish details are primarily highlighted by the progressive material mix, and all attention is drawn to them. A true statement are frames made with an elegant acetate front and a contrasting, shiny metal insert on the top bar, that flows smoothly into the sides. Small, decorative rivets on the middle section or discrete branding on the sides create fine accents. This luxurious appearance of the modern yet still timeless spectacles is completed by interesting colour variations – partly in a two-layer look – such as dark brown with orange, dark grey with black or light-gold with Havana.

Titanium and Acetate between Austerity and Coolness

Two sunglasses and three correction frames made of titanium with acetate elements complete the BALDESSARINI collection. The models convince everyone through a modern design, partly with explicit, purist lines, and partly in a casual retro look. The fronts of the spectacles are made of high-quality, ultralight titanium sheet or titanium. The acetate spectacles create an interesting contrast to this. With acetate in a two-layer or textured look in a contrasting colour, they ensure a modern and smart look.

Casual stylistic confidence in colour: Correction frames made of acetate

The acetate correction frames are surprising this season with thrilling colouring and super effects. Even with the more classical models, for example an expressive transparent olive-green look or the exclusive BALDESSARINI acetate in a textile look, makes sure that the spectacles are unmistakeable. The characteristic BALDESSARINI dots as distinctive marks of the brand also create elegant highlights. In addition, there is an ultralight Panto frame made of high-quality titanium in which the decorative front is discretely accentuated by a fine acetate ring.

BALDESSARINI Signature: Pure luxury in silver

BALDESSARINI Signature is showing three very special, exclusive new additions to the collection with genuine sterling silver. Both the correction frames as well as the sunglasses ennoble their owners through high-quality Italian acetate and the finest silver in an antique look. The inspiration for the three exquisite models was a very special element of the BALDESSARINI jewellery collection: a fabric-like pattern that also serves as a gem mounting, also called a "gallery". The front segment of the temples is framed by a high-quality, three-dimensionally wrought decorative element that decorates the outer and inner sides in the form of a broad decorative strip. Characteristic of this stylised lattice element made of oxidised sterling silver is the extravagant design, an exquisite herringbone look on the outer side and a classical, yet just as artistic, wrought finish on the top of the sides. Made of high-quality acetate, these models are captivating due to an individually textured horn look that makes all spectacles unique. Classical colours like brown, cream, or black emphasise the elegant retro charm of the frames.
