Tech, titanium and color: the very essence of Blackfin instilled in The Highlighter, the first Blackfin brand capsule.
A sophisticated style exercise encompasses the spirit of the brand, driving it toward an extreme, iconic design concept. Three sunwear styles embrace inspirations from the past and launch them into a futuristic vision. Squared lines recall the oversize proportions of ‘90s eyewear while the neon color looks further back to the excesses of the ‘80s. A mask, a cat-eye and a classic aviator are pushed to the extreme in big angular frames that take shape through clear neon lines drawn across the bold profile, just like a highlighter.
The exceptional skills of Blackfin emerge from the processing of different thicknesses of titanium – the front is obtained from a single 3 mm block while the streak of color on the top rim is applied in bas-relief. An extraordinary product that arises, fully formed, from inside the Black Shelter, our new sustainable headquarters. The frames are strictly black with the neon stripe available in five colors: red, fuchsia, blue, yellow and green.
The Highlighter Capsule is available in the online Blackfin shop and at select optical boutiques.
