Preview SAFILO Rebecca Minkoff, the leading designer in accessible luxury handbags, accessories, footwear and apparel, continues to evolve the brand with the debut of the Rebecca Minkoff spring/summer 2019 eyewear collec- tion, produced and distributed by Safilo Group. The collection will feature 18 sunglass styles and the brand’s first-ever optical collection, with 14 frames. These are accessible, head-turning optical frames and sunglasses that women can wear on any occasion. Tilden 1 The collection hones in on a few recognizable design details and distinguishing elements to convey a distinctive identity comprised of three inspirational themes: strength and softness; inner rockstar; and confidence. Stevie 4 The optical collection includes Tilden 1, a stylish cat-eye frame with top brow in acetate complemented by acetate temples and iconic round-shaped stud- ded accents and Stevie 4, oversized aviator frames in metal featuring a “Love Is Love” idiom lasered on the top left rim. Brooke 1, meanwhile, is a 1950s-inspired cat-eye optical frame with star-shaped stud accents in unique custom acetate colourations.
