Paris Premier hinges recall the brand’s range of luxury handbags with its “D” shaped hardware while the Longchamp horse emblem sits discreetly on the temple tip with the engraved brand logo on both sides.

Mondottica to Launch Spine at Vision Expo West


More Images
Quick Take: Mondottica is launching their line of eyewear from Spine at Vision Expo West this year with a new, expanded collection, introducing the new 4.6 hinge.
Wearer: Individuals seeking innovation and flexibility in their frame styles and fit.
Specifics: 11 optical with seven plastic and four metal. Six sun styles with two metal and four plastic.
Selling Points: Inspired by the interaction between vertebrae, Spine solves age-old hinge limitations. Spine hinges grip all day, morphing to fit any face shape and head size all with the lightest of touch. There are no screws, and the temples open and close smoothly and gradually without flicking and traditional “dead” points. The new 4.6 hinge has the same performance of the 7.5—just half the size. The original 7.5 hinge provides that strong statement which perfectly displays the signature hinge that is unmistakably Spine while the 4.6 hinge gives way to a more subtle and minimalist look.
