The Limited Edition “Wes Gordon for Silhouette” is a special collaboration with New York-based women’s wear designer Wes Gordon. Gordon’s unique vision and emphasis on the finest materials and quality craftsmanship make him an ideal partner for Silhouette. The winner of the FGI Rising Star Award, a two-time finalist in the CFDA/Vogue Fashion Fund, and a three-time recipient of the prestigious Swarovski Collective sponsorship, Gordon now brings his timeless, luxurious sophistication to eyewear.
The frames were debuted at New York Fashion Week, in Gordon’s SS16 catwalk show.
The 60’s inspired frames combine high fashion with technology creating a pair of luxury glasses that are some of the lightest in the world. The round frames come in nude brown, classic grey, classic green and ocean blue.
Wes Gordon says, “My collection for Silhouette is designed for confident women who communicate their style with subtle grace and without pretense, who are both feminine and mysterious.”
Gordon joined the Silhouette design team at their studio and factory in Austria to create the unique, ultra-light frames. Combining retro glamour and expressive futurism, the circular frames inspire finesse.
Roland Keplinger, Silhouette’s head of design, noted that both Silhouette and Wes Gordon “possess a deep respect of craftsmanship, a love of highest quality materials, and a driving passion to innovate and create superior product. This shared vision enabled us to bring together our different areas of expertise to create something truly beautiful and also highly functional.”
