Arnette Launches Optical Collection in North America


ENCINITAS, Calif.—Arnette has announced the North American launch of its optical collection. First launched in 2008 in Spain, the Arnette optical collection grew to be distributed across Europe, South America and Australia.

Inspired by the world of independent music and built on a foundation of promoting self-expression, the Arnette Optical Collection consists of fashion-forward styles that not only enhance vision, but compliment personal style as well, according to the company. Handcrafted from rich acetate, with features such as flexible spring hinges designed to increase comfort and fit, the Arnette optical frames are built to meet the highest standards of form and function.

Standouts include the global release, the Fader (AN 7056), a medium-sized frame with a sleek angular design, and the Mixer (AN7057), a traditional rounded frame. Carryover styles now available in the U.S. include the Auxiliary (AN7051), a combination frame with handcrafted acetate, and the Sync (AN7039), a two-toned acetate frame that combines edge and wearability.

Arnette’s ophthalmic frames are progressive friendly and all feature signature temple tips that consist of a double layered acetate design as well as an A-wing plaque inlay on the inside right temple.
