After partnering with several of the most well regarded frame makers throughout Europe to provide the most luxurious of designs – including British designer Tom Davies, iconic Danish designer brands Lindberg and Ørgreen, as well as Nike - the world’s leading manufacturer of adaptive spectacle lenses Transitions has now teamed up with independent Parisian frames designer brand Face-à-Face for an edgy, unusual collaboration.
Together, Transitions and Face-à-Face have launched a new range of sunglasses styles called Bocca, inspired by the legendary Dali’s ‘Mae West’ sofa. To underline the sensual lips that became a frame front, Face-à-Face’s Art Director Pascal Jaulent sculpted the temples into very sexy legs, adorned with glamorous high heels. Other styles adorn the black varnish “Richelieu” shoe, paying tribute to the famous Yves Saint Laurent smoking suit.
What is interesting in the fact that Transitions Optical lenses change from light coloured lenses to dark coloured lenses according to sun's exposure. Check out the sunglasses which comprise the Bocca range below:
