Spring 2013 preview: Flash of color for the new X-ide sunglasses
January 2013 – For the forthcoming spring, the young and innovative X-Ide brand by Immagine98 introduces a sunwear capsule collection bound to wow the public with its striking combination of bright colors, typical of the brand, and top quality details like mirrored lenses.
Porto Cervo and Eggert, two of the last few seasons’ best-selling optical frames entirely hand-crafted in Italy, are now available in a sunglass version with flash colored lenses. The result is a modern and powerful collection that reflects the latest fashion trends while asserting its own uniqueness and originality through exclusive frame materials. Transparent resin encapsulates the metal frame to make it visibly lighter and acts as an enlargement lens that highlights the graduated hues of the metal beneath it.
The capsule line includes two squared styles with well defined thickness in two sizes, one with larger lenses (Eggert) and the other with a smaller front (Porto Cervo). Color clearly plays the starring role, with high contrast combinations of black/white, red/black, blue/white black/blue/green, fuchsia/orange/grey, grey/green, sky-blue/orange and mirrored lenses in red, sky blue, yellow, orange and purple.
