B IV BONE, BLACK & GOLD
Balmain Eyewear’s three new optical eyewear lines build upon classic and familiar shapes, while highlighting Balmain’s unique melding of Parisian heritage with rock inspirations. The BIV frame, with its bold acetate silhouette channels the nonconforming spirit of the artists that have inspired Balmain’s most successful runways. The Brigade III riffs on the distinctive ‘80s pop vibe that has been woven into the hou- se’s most recent collections, adding striking octagonal lenses to textured side shields and striking temples. The Sentinelle III gives a Balmain touch to one of the most flattering shapes for women’s eyewear—the elegant cateye.
