High-Tech-Summer with Carbon, Steel and Titanium

Porsche Design presents a total of ten new sunglasses and correction frames for ladies and men in summer 2012. The addition to the current eyewear collection with high-tech materials, a purist design and outstanding wearing comfort once again emphasises the craftsmanship and exclusive design of the luxury brand.

Carbon for Innovative Spectacles Models
Absolute highlights of the current collection are the models made of the high-tech material carbon, which also has many advantages in the production of spectacles. Carbon is extremely light and resilient with very high strength. Sunglasses P'8550 and P'8551, which can be glazed with correction lenses, as well as correction frames P‘8222, P‘8223 and P‘8224 are captivating with the high-quality material made of three layers. Carbon with a resin coating gives the flexible sides their stylish look. The stainless steel front provides a masculine flair, and soft rubber on the adjustable end pieces provides perfect wearing comfort. The three correction models provide just the right styling for any look: P'8222 goes perfectly with the sporty style, P'8223 is convincing with its classical look, and P'8224 gives a modern appearance.

Modern Material Mix
Porsche Design makes a clear fashion statement with correction model P'8221 and its modern material mix. The striking outside ring made of polyamide emphasises the bridge, which is made of very light titanium. With the elegant gold and black colouring, the stylish correction frame becomes a sporty and individual must-have in everyday business life and in your spare time.

Perfection of Pure Titanium
Masculine and exquisite: The "Flowing titanium" line from Porsche Design embodies the styling of the legendary design icon, the Porsche 911, which Profes-sor Ferdinand Alexander Porsche created in 1963. The two sunglasses P'8541 and P'8542 are new in the product range this season. The front, lugs and sides flow together in curved lines and create impressive light and shadow effects. 200 production steps are required to manufacture the rimless sunglasses frames made of pure titanium. The integrated spring hinges also give evidence of the highest quality. The exquisite colour combinations of matt-titanium with grey and light-gold with brown underscore the extravagant, purist design.

Flexible Eye-Catcher
Correction frames P’8227 (S1) and P‘8227 (S2) are characterised by their pure de-sign and extreme lightness. Thanks to a single fixation on the bridge, the frames are a real eye-catcher and tremendously elastic. Decorative titanium connections maintain the minimalist shape. Matt, semitransparent polyamide adorns the lenses, which are equipped with a moulded-in hinge for an optimum fit. The lenses seem to flow and are available in two Carré lens shapes: an elegant, rounded shape (S1) as well as a sporty, slender and angular (S2).

A Timeless Statement
Fans of aviator sunglasses will be delighted by the brand new cornered variant P'8548, which reinterprets the retro look and is available in five colours. Another highlight is the classic Porsche Design P'8508 in light gold, which is now also available in a size of 62 millimetres as well as 60 millimetres. The sporty models are not only cool accessories, but with polarised lenses, they are also optimally suited to numerous types of water sports.
