SILHOUETTE model “SPX” M 3178 from year: 2004. This model is from SILHOUETTE’S (in 1964 founded) 40th anniversary collection. It directly recalls one of SILHOUETTE’S most biggest hits from the seventies: the infamous FUTURA line sunglasses. The “three” lenses of this M 3178 model is a hommage SILHOUETTE paid to their iconic FUTURA model. Other then the three lenses, these sunglasses are very different from their older sister. Their quality is extremly high.
Here the text imprinted in the little booklet that came with the glasses, in the very elegant package:
“Exclusive sunwear – the Anniversary Collection. Stricking shapes and a special colour design determine the extravagant appeal of the SPX Modern Art sunwear models created for the company’s 40th anniversary. The 70s and 80s look is newly reinterpreted for an exciting fashion revival. Moreover, the eye-rims are coated with a high-tech metallic flash – a delicate, silvery sheen. With their sun protection lenses of optical quality class 1, all frames offer total protection against UV A, B and C radiation.”
These SILHOUETTE sunglasses have temples that are not attached to the frames with any screws. They are feather light and extremly comfortable. We at sunglassespreservation believe them to be one of the most comfortable sunglasses we have wore to date. They were apparently available in four colors: black, orange, flash pink and blue.
