Barberini Eyewear’s project is focused on best visual quality and protection, thanks to the extraordinary optical glass lenses. UV400 protection, colour enhancement, resistance and lightness are only few of the Barberini sunglasses’ key points
Starting from the quality of the glass and using only the most innovative and performing material, Platinum Glass™, the company provides the same exceptional characteristics on its RX Programme as well, Platinum Glass™ prescription sun lenses, both monofocal and progressive, are available in all the Barberini Eyewear’s collection.
From June until the end of the year, all Barberini customers have the opportunity to try the RX programme for free. According to their needs, they can order a pair of Platinum Glass™ prescription sun lenses without any extra cost but the chosen frame. This special promo allows opticians to personally experience the “Well-seeing”, so dear value to the company, and to appreciate the unique characteristics of the Barberini Platinum Glass™ lenses.
Sun shines all the year round with the new Barberini Eyewear proposals!
The sunglasses that will be presented at the Paris Exhibition match trendy design with technical excellence, heralding at the same time the birth of Photopolar lenses. These lenses combine polarization and photochromism, two extremely functional characteristics stemming from the R&D of the leading company in the production of optical glass lenses.
These lenses will be available in three versions, one of which is a world premiere, since it ranges from category 3 to 4. The latter category includes the darkest possible lenses, usually used in high mountains or in conditions of very high solar radiation and for this reason forbidden when driving. The peculiarity of these lenses – which is that of remaining clearer inside the car – allows Barberini sunglasses to be worn in this context as well.
Photopolar lenses are matched with both technical frames and lifestyle models.
Amber shaded blue cat. 3-4 Platinum GlassTM Photopolar lenses which fit into an injected matt black aluminium frame. A sporty and wraparound taste for a more dynamic use.
Sapphire shaded grey cat. 2-3 Platinum GlassTM Photopolar lenses which are enhanced by an opaque black acetate frame. Facetted profiles and key-shape bridge.
Shaded gray silver cat. 2-3 Platinum GlassTM Photopolar lenses which are set, as they were jewels, in a metal and matt black acetate frame. Classic drop shape restyled in order to obtain a more contemporary appeal.
Barberini Eyewear sunglasses, 100% made in Italy with the best materials, are designed to highlight the excellent optical quality of glass lenses, all made of Platinum GlassTM, namely the best existing optical glass.
Its main features are:.
– chromatic equalization, obtained by the addition of Rare Earth Elements – oxides capable of exalting colours for a perfectly contrasted visual rendering;
– exceptional UV protection that goes beyond the UV100% standard. By definition all our lenses are UV400;
– multilayer anti-reflection;
– oleophobic and hydrophobic treatments.
The collection offers not only polarized and photochromic lenses, but also with infrared (IR) protection. The collection is also available with monofocal or progressive prescription lenses with the widest colour choice in the market.
