Rag & Bone reveals latest eyewear collection

20/03/2018By Matthew Woodley
Safilo partner Rag & Bone has released its most recent collection, which features 31 separate styles intended to reflect the unique design philosophy of the New York-based brand.

Included in the new range are eight women’s and nine men’s sunglasses, as well as seven optical frames, each for men and women. The collection only became available in Australia last week, and Safilo is expecting independent optometrists and sunglasses stores to be the main sellers of the range.

“The novel hinge system, used mainly in the electronics, automotive, security and construction industries, is an exclusive point of differentiation for the collection.”

According to a Rag & Bone media release, four design codes are constant throughout the new collection – British, Americana, Military and Sport – while a Torx six point screw-head hinge system has been used for all optical frames and select sunglasses.

“This design detail protects the hinges and acetate while making the frame easier to adjust for a customised fit. A special screwdriver toolkit will be provided to retailers to make adjustments,” the release stated.

“The novel hinge system, used mainly in the electronics, automotive, security and construction industries, is an exclusive point of differentiation for the collection.”

Rag & Bone’s five daggers motif has also been incorporated into the collection, by serving as the design detail for its three distinct product families – Iconic, Street and Runway. The dagger theme can be found integrated into frame hinges, endpieces, core wires, temples and temple tip rivets.
