Titan Minimal Art – A Refresh

Titan Minimal Art – A Refresh

Thanks to its exclusively shaped lenses and color options, Silhouette‘s design icon Titan Minimal Art offers you even more freedom to express your own personal style. As the best-selling pair of prescription spectacles, Titan Minimal Art is a constant in times of constant change – but the product always makes sure to take on a unique revival. With the retro butterfly and cat-eye shaped lenses of the 1960s, the models for women show true classic charm. The color options for women are also noteworthy, ranging from a deep red to a refreshing purple. Three smaller oval-shaped lenses for men have a more 90’s’ feel about them and colors such as gold, silver and a calming blue add to this notion. The design of Titan Minimal Art – The Must Collection goes back to basics because clear focus always leads the way. The icon’s new lens shapes are available from select optical shops as of May 2017.
