Alpine Eyewear glasses
For the development of its eyewear brand, Alpine has decided to partner with 15-1 Diffusion, specialized in the creation of high-end eyewear collections. 15-1 Diffusion will manage the design, the manufacturing and the distribution through the world. For its lenses, Alpine Eyewear has chosen to work with the French company Novacel, a known and major actor for lenses manufacturing.
Alpine Eyewear will propose various collections (sport/elegance) with different materials, designs, and lenses finish. For the lenses, the know-how brought by Novacel allows to develop high end lenses with unique colors, especially the iconic Alpine blue one. The Airlis Shock lenses are very resistant to scratches and easy to clean thanks to the super antistatic, hydrophobic and oleophobic coatings.
Alpine Eyewear Première Edition
The first collection created by Alpine Eyewear wears the name of “Premiere Edition” after the name A110 Première Edition. As for the car, the first eyewear collection is a numbered limited edition. The men and women glasses are proposed first to the 1955 A110 Premiere Edition customers.
The numbered limited edition uses the codes of the A110: lightness, sportiness and everyday comfort. They combine timeless style and a sporty touch.
Alpine Eyewear frames are made of brushed aluminium, main material used in the A110 body. They will be available in two colors: black, Alpine blue but also in a brushed aluminium finish which reminds the A110 raw body.
Car design cues are also visible on the frame. For instance, the arms bear the shape on the embossed doors, the Alpine logo appears on the hinges of the frames and the arms end reminds the quilting of the A110 seats.
Furthermore, the inside of the arms states, thanks to the French flag, that Alpine Eyewear if a 100% French brand. Alpine Eyewear first collection can be customized with a short text of the customer’s choice as well as a number to take from the 1955 available.
