The Aesthetics of Perfection

Porsche Design presents its extension to the current eyewear collection for summer 2011. The new models are convincing with features that are typical of the luxury brand: purist design, innovative technology, perfect engineering and exclusive materials.

Porsche Design is expanding the new line for men, which was launched in January, with two sporty correction frames that are characterised by an extremely solid structure that is light at the same time. It is called Honeycomb. The original honey-comb from bees is the inspiration and design template for these high-tech spectacles. The structure of honeycomb has been used for a long time in aerospace and automobile technology – exactly where the material has to have high strength as well as lightness. As a further development of the sunglasses that already exist, correction frames P'8199 and P'8210 have the honeycomb structure only on the inside of the sides, making the contrasts even more discrete. The models are available in a full-rim and Nylor version and are very convincing with their decorative metal front and slim lugs. These features give the sporty spectacles a light and modern impression.

Correction frame P'8205 is characterised by purism, lightness as well as flexibility, and is available in two different Carré lens shapes. The P'8205 S1 has an elegant, rounded shape, and the P'8205 S1 makes a sporty, slender and angular impression. The minimalistic front is supported by decorative titanium connections. The sides are made of matt, semi-transparent polyamide and are equipped with a moulded-in hinge for optimum fitting. The lenses of the rimless models are fastened without screws, which highlights the minimalistic high-tech look of the spectacles.

Fans of the colour gold will be happy with the very special colour addition of the successful P'8508 aviator sunglasses in light gold. Not only the frame, but the lenses have it as well: The classical base colour, brown, becomes an eye-catcher thanks to a progression and golden mirroring. This qualifies the additional colour as an absolute must-have for fans of the cool and timeless aviator models.

The new models of the Porsche Design Eyewear Collection can be ordered from Rodenstock effective immediately.
