Round Mask: TAVAT Eyewear

TAVAT’s Round Mask is a 2018 must-have, a special take on their popular SoupCan design and, essentially, two designs in one. First featured on EYESTYLIST in January this year, the colours have since been expanded. Exciting effects in the material combination highlights the frame’s forward-focused aesthetic achieved by inserting an acetate mask into the body of a SoupCan style, the round model 2.0. The front is paired with flexible acetate sides pieces and the lenses are produced in top-notch melanin, a material that is UV protective and lightweight with excellent optical clarity. TAVAT Eyewear is designed in California and produced in Italy, and all frames have unique artisan features produced in advanced materials with superior functionality and comfort. Find out more at www.tavat-eyewear.com CN
