An Icon for an Icon

No rims, no hinges, no screws, and a minimal weight of just 1.8 grams… it’s no wonder Silhouette’s Minimal Art Icon eyewear is the eyewear of choice for American Hollywood icon Patrick Dempsey.

Speaking of his preferences for specs and sunnies, the actor who plays Dr. Derek Shepherd in Grey’s Anatomy says, “I really love the classic lines and also modern designs, but at the same time, I like things that are comfortable. I like something with a little edge but not too much of a statement – in that the style is wearing you, not the other way around”.

The “sexiest man alive” won over the team at Silhouette, which recently named Dempsey the ‘face’ of Minimal Art Icon. The original Minimal Art Icon frame was first released in 1999. Models within the collection have accompanied NASA astronauts on 35 missions into space. Aside from being seen on the faces of several other Hollywood stars, it can be found in the permanent collection of the Museum for Applied Arts in Vienna. The new Minimal Art Icon collection will be launched at ODMA this year.
