When form meets function; kookiness is mixed with sophistication; and experimentation tempered by restraint, the result is a collection of show-stopping frames by Australian designer Catherine Federici for Isson.
Sunglasses are engraved with floral and cross-hatch patterning and for the first time, mirrored lenses feature in some key pieces. The collection also includes three models created in collaboration
with the swimwear brand, We Are Handsome.
Federici has introduced the unique hinge-plate design, seen on many of the pieces in her sun collection, into a number of her seven new optical frames.
Speaking of her fearless approach to design, Federici said, “It’s often designs that are the most left-of-centre that become the biggest sellers in a collection. It’s surprising but it also inspires me to continue pushing the boundaries”.
Isson’s unique optical and sunglass frames are now stocked in 29 countries including USA, UK, France, Germany, Switzerland, Japan and Italy.
