Blackfin – Cape May

I am wearing a slightly elongated yet sinuously shaped frame by BLACKFIN, which comes in a sophisticated array of colors. The brand’s techno-glamour concept is exemplified in this vintage-inspired frame, where the bas-relief workmanship is accentuated by the contrasting color palette.

Three gradations of color – from powder pink, to lilac, to fuchsia – silhouette the cat-eye contour, in a celebration of artisan craftsmanship taken to a whole new level when applied to a highly innovative production technique. Reminiscent of its retro shape, the model name “Cape May:  is a tribute to the early post-war bourgeois elegance embodied in the understated charm of American ladies vacationing along the New Jersey shoreline.

The Spring 2019 collection displays the total Blackfin aesthetic vision in which the sophisticated mood of the new communications campaign and the new stand for Mido are faithfully reflected in its design.

Such stylistic maturity is intended to mark an essential stage, rather than the finishing point, in the identity- building journey undertaken by the brand, in other words a milestone in its history. Titanium, always the distinctive feature of Blackfin eyewear, remains the element to be moulded and the page on which a new chapter in this authentic Italian story is written. New frames expressing the essence of Blackfin, free from the stereotypes of fashion and passing trends.

This natural consciousness translates into a collection with well-defined lines and original colour effects, a combination of hi-tech know-how and glamour, capable of celebrating every aspect of a piece of eyewear, the signature of this company’s sense of elegance and flair for innovation.

About Blackfin

There are those who follow the paths traced by others and those who break new ground. BLACKFIN design embodies the style of those who are always on the forefront, giving them a contemporary and cutting-edge image. BLACKFIN is driven by an innate desire to always look ahead and a deep awareness of their skills. This is why their products are the direct reflection of their abilities: the ability to perform a truly unique work and the attention to every single construction detail. Titanium and every single characteristic of it that’s what they know perfectly well; that’s their material; and that is why they are able to form it like no one else and why they succeed in combining it with a truly advanced design.

Copenhagen Specs

Als Morten G. mich zur diesjährigen Copenhagen Specs, die Messe für independent eyewear, eingeladen hat, war meine Freude wirklich sehr groß. Denn ich habe schon sehr viel Gutes über diese kleine, aber ganz besondere Brillenmesse in toller Atmosphäre gehört. Diese Messe setzt ganz klar ihren Fokus auf INDEPENDENT, was soviel bedeutet, dass tatsächlich (fast) nur unabhängige Eyewear Brands vertreten sind. Also findet man dort kein Ray Ban, Prada, Chanel oder co. Nein, denn tatsächlich findet man bei dieser Messe ganz andere Größen wie zb. Andy Wolf, Salt, Blackfin oder auch Oliver Goldsmith. Vielleicht sind diese Namen in der Fashion Welt nicht so bekannt, aber wer sich für Brillen interessiert, kommt an diesen Brillenmarken tatsächlich nicht vorbei. Stil, Trend, Qualität und Lifestyle sind nur einige Schlagworte, die all diese Brillenmarken charkaterisieren. Wie schon bei meinem Opti Rückblick, möchte ich euch heute einfach einen kurzen Einblick der Messe geben und dafür eigenen sich Bilder immer noch am Besten. Bei meinem nächsten Post könnt ihr dann mehr über die Highlights der Messe erfahren.

//So Morten G. has invited me to this year’s Copenhagen Specs, the fair for independent eyewear, my pleasure was really great. Because I have already heard a lot good about this small, but very special eyewear fair in a great atmosphere. This fair is clearly focusing on INDEPENDENT, which means that (nearly) only independent eyewear brands are represented. So there is no Ray Ban, Prada, Chanel or co. In fact you can find quite different sizes at this fair, eg. Andy Wolf, Salt, Blackfin or Oliver Goldsmith. Perhaps these names are not so well-known in the fashion world, but those who are interested in eyewear won’t miss these glasses brands. Style, trend, quality and lifestyle are just a few buzzwords that characterize all these eyewear brands. As with my Opti review, I just would like to give you a brief glimpse of the exhibition with some pictures. At my next post you can find out more about the highlights of the fair.
