A new Fleye collection of 16 styles will release at SILMO to mark two decades of design. The frame concept is inspired by a type of round layered Danish cake called “lagkage”
The Danish eyewear brand FLEYE Copenhagen marks its 20th year with a brand new collection called ‘Decades of Design’. As a tribute to its beautiful eyewear design work through two decades, the label has created a collection that is testament to craftsmanship and artistry where fine design, fit and quality are manifested in each individual frame.
Special features include sleek inner rims, which add character to the beta-titanium frames and elegant engravings inside the temples. The acetate frames have beautiful soft colours including fade effects and a striking mottled tortoise. Above: models in the Decades of Design collection
“Together we celebrate a two-decade journey. FLEYE Copenhagen reflects a set of values at the epitome of Danish design. From the designer’s first sketch to the careful creation of each frame and the thorough service afterwards – it is the small details that makes the big difference,” – Annette Estø, Head of Marketing & Design
Fleye Copenhagen’s imaginative design collections are based on creative inspirations, and explored with passion and energy through still life photography. These qualities remain a particularly endearing starting point in this line – which is inspired by the traditional Danish ‘layered’ lagkage cake.
The many colours of this traditional and well-known ‘celebration’ cake, with textures placed on top of each other, have inspired ingenious layering effects in the frame designs, as well as delicate colour combinations and shapes. Included in the splendid mixed material selection are four refined frames in acetate in contemporary colours such as blue fade and grey with ‘swirl grey’ back, eight beta-titanium designs with a simple, timeless aesthetic and four new carbon-wood styles – a sleek and stylish denouement in a beautiful and memorable Danish optical line.
