Morel releases Abelia from Koali

Morel releases Abelia from Koali

The tubular flowers and variegated foliage of the Abelia bush have inspired a range of modern, colorful and light combination frames, in which the acetate blends into the stainless steel. This twin-material combination consists of two eyepieces in grooved acetate fixed to a colored stainless steel bar. This novel frame reveals a colored line (stainless steel) on top of the eyeshape, and the lower part of the acetate front is held in place by a nylon-wire fitting for greater lightness. The frames feature outstanding color work: exclusive Koali acetate made up of strands in opaque shades and embedded in a transparent colored base to produce a rich, intense look. Abelia is available in 3 lightweight models featuring generous shapes as well as a range of blended tortoiseshells and bright colors: purple, ultramarine, fuchsia, raspberry and celadon green. All combinations emphasize the transparency of the material, offering elegant and refined frames in a range of sizes (49, 49, 51). Koali Abelia
