SUSTAINABLE KIDS BY SAFILO

SUSTAINABLE KIDS BY SAFILO

Two years after its ground-breaking launch, ‘KIDS by Safilo’ is in the stores with its eco-compatible collection for a Green Back-To-School 2017. This unique eyewear line is made of bio-based polymers, derived from natural renewable resources and engineered to replace fossil-oil based polymers. As part of Safilo’s commitment to sustainability and continuous efforts to protect the environment, Safilo Kids eyewear uses two different bio-polymers, both made with bio-based contents derived from castor oil: a rigid one to give structural performance to the frame and the temples and a soft one to guarantee the best fit on the face, comfort and safety for the user. 100% Made in Italy, and developed in light, safe and eco-friendly materials, the glasses represent a uniquely sustainable offer that addresses with special care the specific needs of children with innovation in design and construction. These bio-compatible, hypoallergenic, and washable materials guarantee the safety of the product and its durability, and therefore perfectly suitable for use by infants and toddlers. In fact, the ‘KIDS by Safilo’ eyewear collection is a ground-breaking eyewear project devoted children,...

Tura Inc: Ted Baker – Finely Framed

Tura Inc: Ted Baker – Finely Framed

The Ted Baker collection is historically classic in regards to shape and fit, but we’re here to remind you that Ted Baker never stops innovating in their design. Using innovative materials and applying modern updates to retro frames is a design theme at the crux of the brand. This time, innovation spurs from the use of a material that is 30% lighter than standard acetate, known as HDCA. HDCA, or High Density Cellulose Acetate. More importantly, these lightweight frames are extremely strong; giving Ted Baker the ability to embellish them with spring hinges, metal décor and all of the other details used in the standard collection. In fact, this lightweight material is so strong it keeps its form and adjustments in the same way a regular plastic frame would. In addition, the RX capabilities of an HDCA frame mirror that of a standard acetate frame. As you might know, Ted Baker launched the Men’s Finely Framed sub-collection earlier this year. In an effort to perfectly compliment this men’s sub-collection, Ted Baker is now adding the Ladies’ Finely Framed sub-collection. In the ladies’ Finely Framed sub-collection, Ted Baker has elevated these styles by pairing them with titanium...
