Two new optical frame collections have been launched by Italian eyewear distributor De Rigo under the Chopard and Givenchy brands. Pieces in the Chopard ophthalmic eyewear collection were designed to look like jewellery accessories and feature feminine, lightweight styles made from acetate and plastic and using gold plating. Model VCH067S features the Cameo motif on its temples, a new design element which is characterised by a crossover of two oval crystals framing Chopard’s C logo. The model has wide temples, tapering sides and is made from acetate. Included in the new Chopard collection is the High Jewellery series of frames which feature interwoven coloured crystals as well an italicised C logo on the temples and a wire trimmed frame. Model VCH779S (top) is a typical example of the High Jewellery series. Givenchy’s 2010 range for women (bottom) was designed by Italian fashion designer, Riccardo Tisci and is described by the distributor as ‘modern, austere and sensual’. Created from different materials including plastic, acetate and metal, the collection is available in a variety of colours and all frames feature a discreet Givenchy logo on the temples.
