“ LONGARONE, Italy—For Spring/Summer 2018, the LVMH-Marcolin joint venture, Thelios, presents its first collection, Céline eyewear. Produced entirely in Italy and crafted in iconic and essential designs, the collection creates an elegant, understated look that is also distinctly unique.
All styles from this collection feature exclusive combinations of colorful acetates, some featuring mineral Barberini lenses and others with polarized lenses offering UVB and UVA ray protection to ensure visual sharpness and comfort. The collection includes vintage-inspired, timeless styles revisited in new, contemporary versions with updated shapes that range from sophisticated cat eye to squared designs. Some collection highlights include the CL40008I which showcases a cat eye silhouette recreated entirely in clear acetate with an exclusive two-layer technique. Style CL40039U features a wide shape with sharp lines that are softened through sophisticated metal details and clear lenses which offer UVB and UVA ray protection. Transparent effects combine and contrast with metallic gold and silver finishes. The CL40017I style from this inaugural collection features a round, contemporary feminine shape in flat clear acetate, with a visible metal core in the temples. The CL40032U frame is a high impact unisex navigator, featuring a double acetate bridge and a geometric design. It is also available in two lens versions: solid and color gradient.”
