Further expanding her growing accessories line, ANITA HIRLEKAR has experimented with bold acetate on a debut range of sunglasses, created in collaboration with luxury optical brand Cutler and Gross.
The mini collection was inspired by the idea of strong personalities wearing statement frames in elegant shapes. First drop of the collection features a statement, dramatically chic angular frame featuring faceted upper rim and elegant tapered temples. And strong attention to detail where there was a playful focus on the transparent materials.
The frames have been given the ANITA HIRLEKAR treatment with unusual and unexpected color combinations, like violet and orange mango, which is a natural extension of Hirlekar's ready to wear collections. The results are elegant and refined, allowing women to embrace their individuality.
