In 1964, Silhouette started out with the idea that a visual aid could also be a desirable and beautiful accessory. With the rimless Momentum Aurum collection, the Austrian eyewear brand has perfectly implemented this concept for the luxury market, while designing a highly desirable piece of jewelry at the same time. The new collection is aimed at discerning, trend-conscious women who value exclusive accessories. Inspired by fine watches and jewelry, Silhouette has designed a very special pair of luxury eyewear. The Momentum Aurum is rimless and impressively enhances the temple of the best-selling Momentum collection. The carefully hand-polished, 23-carat gold-plated, high-gloss surface is luxurious and particularly eye-catching.
Visionary designs with an on-trend, rimless look
High-end rimless eyewear has garnered a ton of attention as of late, both on and off the runways. The global market leader in premium rimless eyewear has enhanced the minimalist look of the Momentum Aurum with two visionary, unique designs. The stand-out feature of the first design in Pure Gold is the cat-eye-like shape of the lenses, combined with an aviator double bridge. This exciting combination suits many different face shapes, including narrower ones. The Pure Rosegold shape is uniquely feminine and perfectly complements many different face shapes. Both designs are available in two sizes.
Light, comfortable feel of luxury
“The elegant Momentum design was predestined for a luxurious finish,” explains Roland Keplinger, Design Director at Silhouette. “We’re introducing the 23-carat gold-plated version in two visionary, feminine designs that make a real statement and feature a sophisticated double bridge.” The new collection not only sparkles with gold-plated, hand-polished surfaces, but also with other special features. The Momentum Aurum is beautifully crafted, very durable and made from a hypoallergenic material. The precision hinge was inspired by the fine jewelry and watchmaking industries. Thanks to the adjustable, trimmable temples, the new collection offers its wearer a perfect fit. With this eyewear, Silhouette impressively demonstrates how light and comfortable luxury can feel.
Founded in 1964, Silhouette is the global leader in premium rimless eyewear. In 1999, the family-operated company revolutionized the glasses industry with an innovative screwless, hingeless, and rimless model called Titan Minimal Art. This innovative design – made from start to finish in Austria and weighing only 1.8 grams – was unlike anything the world had ever seen. All Silhouette glasses are made from the highest quality materials using cutting edge technology and the finest handcraftsmanship. In fact, around 80% of the build is carried out by hand. This ensures the glasses deliver best-in-class comfort to a global market of more than 100 countries on five continents and in space. With 50 patents and over 100 design awards under its belt, Silhouette has a relentless commitment to quality: Over 100 quality control checks must be carried out before a single pair of glasses leaves its headquarters in Linz, Austria.
