15th July 2014 Ultra thin, super light frames are among the marvels of modern eyewear. Wizardry techniques allow designers to create frames with featherweight statistics and mega-style. Spin & Stow innovation by Sven Götti at Götti Switzerland enables 360° rotation of the temple. The outer edge of the temple rotates inwards to fit within the inner front of the glasses. Travel+Leisure Magazine awarded the Spin & Stow sunglass collection the Best Travel Fashion and Accessories category for 2013. Above: Kosima – elegant and chic.
A glamorous, voluminous shape characterizes Xandro, also by Götti Switzerland, and features the easy to fold-and-tuck-in-your-pocket Spin & Stow temples. www.gotti.ch In the UK, Götti is available at Alderley Eyecare in Alderly Edge – www.alderleyeyecare.co.uk – and in Northampton at TK&S Optometrist – www.tks-optometrists.co.uk
Silhouette’s main message for eyewear has always been to create frames that are extremely lightweight, beautifully crafted and streamlined. That philosophy continues today for the Austrian-based company, that is celebrating their 50th Anniversary this year. Silhouette frames have even been in outer space with astronauts! Centre Court will gather admiring glances with its slick, sophisticated styling in luxurious sand. www.silhouette.com JG
