Silmo exclusive: Maybach Eyewear

Luxury label Maybach Eyewear highlights handcrafting and exquisite materials such as natural buffalo horn, precious metal and titanium 

A prestigious trio of materials, a daring design style and hours of crafting are at the core of one of the collaborations of note this season at the German luxury eyewear brand: ‘The Creator I’ from Maybach Eyewear and Mercedes-Benz offers an interpretation of contemporary couture eyewear that is adventurous and bold with a cool structure, inspired by a shield design. The exclusive model combines lightweight titanium and sustainably sourced natural horn, while 22 carat gold, platinum, and 18 carat rose gold elements add a special and luxurious touch.  Above: the Creator I by Maybach Eyewear + Mercedes-Benz
