ARC Sunglasses by Blackfin

Blackfin, the titanium eyewear brand designed and manufactured entirely in Italy, debuts with a LuisaViaRoma private edition. The Spring Summer 2019 capsule comprises the brand’s legendary Slot and Arc sun styles, crafted in exclusive colors for the Florentine store.

Swordfish temples in beta titanium, the SLOT frame couples the purity of the material and the linear curves of the circle. Thanks to the metal’s flexibility, the perfect shape wraps around the lens without seams or screws. The slot is symbolic of a precious missing piece, a distinctive feature that lends allure to the circle. With ARC, the structural supporting arch lends a fresh connotation to the frame, inspiring the name itself. But the reference is also to the bow, intended as an instrument that, under tension, becomes the bridge that embraces the lenses and encloses them in a single piece of metal.

Since the 1930s, LuisaViaRoma has been an acknowledged force in the luxury retail landscape. Located in the center of Florence, the shop and the website (, offer a selection of top-of-the-line clothing, accessories and home collections from the leading fashion designers and most intriguing emerging talents. A prestigious showcase for Blackfin and the bold techno-glamour style identity of its eyewear collection that won over the famed online retailer.
