Summer is invariably the season that you want to spend lounging by the poolside, on seaside strolls, or taking the time travelling to new cities to wander through sun-kissed streets. It’s also, of course, the season to fall in love and to spend time with a lover, alternating between shade, sun, flirting and enjoyment, around poolside parties and rooftop bars. To enjoy the summer fully, you’ll of course want to dip into style, with sleek, minimal, lightweight pieces to make the most of the heat and the sun. Luckily, Austrian sunglasses brand Silhouette is here with its Sun Collection to capture the full elegance of summer attire. Bringing lightweight pieces to you with its Iconic minimalism, Silhouette offers light sunglasses, to pair with airy dresses, linen shirts and silken textures. For the Sun Collection, photographer Thomas Unterberger draws us into an urban narrative, following two lovers as they explore the city together.
Sophisticated, effortless and with an acute attention to details, Silhouette sunglasses are synonymous with excellence, capturing all the craft and savoir-faire of Austrian design. Founded in 1964, the company has been a leader in terms of quality and materials for decades, with the Made in Austria seal proving craftsmanship and durability. The family business focuses on managing production locally, with an eye on sustainability, to provide the excellence inherent to the brand’s philosophy.
Exquisite lines characterize the Silhouette pieces. The Sun Collection now features new colours, including “Brass Safari”, “Sunset Beach” or “Fresh Nature”. The full service brand – that designs lenses and frames, brings an array of summer pieces to you, offering both innovation and heritage with their unbeatable expertise in the field of sunglasses.
Nothing quite feels like a Silhouette design – the unique design is flowing, minimal, architectural – the sunglasses are unnoticeable, but noticeably so! Feeling the sunglasses as you try them on for the first time encapsulates all the history and philosophy of the brand. The specificity of the design embraces the body, with a shape that embraces the face with a light and comfortable structure. The first point of contact with the sunglasses makes anyone a lover of the brand. What are you waiting for the first Silhouette pair? Try them on, wear them: you’ll love them.
