“ELEMENT SERIES II” is the second installment of the ELEMENT SERIES of acetate front sunglasses. In this installment, a different color is used for each of the three main elements of the sunglasses – the front, temples and tips – with soft tinting and accents in cheerful spring and summer colors. The second incarnation keeps the pure titanium plate temples that gently frame the face with an R shape, while creating a bold geometric lens shape at the front. Make an impression with the striking shape and volume of the new ELEMENT SERIES.

The series will be released on Thursday, April 26th.
