NEW SKINS MODELS WITH A RETRO LOOK
Xavier Garcia for Autumn-Winter 2016-17 adds three new designs to the SKIN collection. The metal family Structures continues to experiment and complete the offer with new vintage styles and retro moods: metal foils called "skins" create unique designs that are full of character and energy.
The Structures family – inspired by minimalist architecture - is expanding with the models JANET, JOANA and LAREDO.
JANET is diligent and refined. She stands out for her energetic high-heeled stride and the gentle scent of exotic flowers and spices that wafts behind her as she passes by. She never takes the lift (this is her secret way of staying in shape). A 50s-style cat-eye (Ø54) shape with the half rim that makes the model light while the low-rising frame allows the “skins” at the top to highlight her expressive eyebrows.
JOANA is her opposite: punctilious and generous. She loves entertaining guests and everyone knows she makes a great hostess. She treasures the dozens of skirts in her wardrobe, painstakingly mixing and matching them every day. Her greatest indulgence: carrot cake. A shape that combine design large round rims (Ø52) where the outer “skin” emphasises the top of the frame, making it big, slightly feline and with a distinctly retro styling.
Xavier Garcia collections express traditional values blended with elements of contemporary style; in fact, the brand sculpts and remodels the eyewear classic shapes with modern technologies and workmanship. Wearability, colours, subtle nuances, deconstruction and reconstruction are some of the key words associated with the Spanish brand.
Each piece of eyewear becomes a piece of art, set apart by artistic experimentation with size and proportions. All the creations by Xavier Garcia are eminently comfortable; they fit in with urban life, are unmistakable and always sure to turn heads.
