The product introduces a new concept in the eyewear industry, of applying rust to acetate
RUST, oxidised acetate, is the latest product developed by Pregiata for the Tom Rebl Eyewear brand that will be presented at Silmo. Its unique design and craftsmanship introduce a new concept to the sector: applying rust to acetate. The result is a line of eyewear offered in two different versions that look promising, Protos and Bomb-Ray.
The three Protos styles that have been mainstays of the Tom Rebl Eyewear collection ever since its official debut are now also offered in the RUST version. Its distinctive features are minimalistic frames, expert craftsmanship, and finishes applied by hand. Zeiss lenses designed for maximum eye-comfort complete the look.
Presented during the Milan Fashion Week, Bomb-Ray eyeglasses are round and feature two semi-frames in acetate joined by a special bridge that is handcrafted from metal plate. The contrasting finishes are in oxidised acetate with a shiny silver metal bridge. The temples, made of acetate, feature the iconic shape of the Tom Rebl collection, with the LIP logo on the left tip and an inner plate inscribed with the logo. Black smoke coloured Zeiss lenses complete the look. Everything is entirely hand crafted.
