theo Lavalands “hot vs. cold” – geologic-inspired designs, in daring colours
Inspired by the raw encounters of the forces of nature – hot lava and cool seawater – and the creation of unique volcanic islands, a new series by theo pushes the boundaries of eyewear creativity for the new season – as we’d expect – with stark contrasts in materials and powerful somewhat awe-inspiring colour choices. The five frames – named after well-known volcanic islands – Santorini (Italy), Maui (Hawaii), Flores (Indonesia), Karukera (Guadeloupe) and Aogashima (Japan) combine warm acetate and cool steel, with contrasting angles, smooth surfaces and strong, exhilarating shapes – all in their own way daring, idiosyncratic and spectacularly dramatic. Above: model Karukera by theo in the Lavalands collection – an iconic round shape in the series.
Each model is available in eight contrasting colours and materials, with highlights including fiery tones of yellow and orange and signature theo colours of bright blue, cool “ash” grey and hot pink. The line is one of three new collections themed under the motto “theo goes upstream” – promising an injection of absolute uniqueness and personal style – in pure design that goes far beyond its functional purpose.
