VERSACE often relates their design creations to the wonders of the seas and oceans. We see the underwater realms appear on silk pillows, high end porcelain cups and plates as well as clothes and of course, on accessories! Our favorite type of accessories are sunglasses and VERSACE doesn’t disappoint us with this amazing coral reef, pearl and star fish studded pair of high end summer shades!
These sunglasses were available in the mid zeros and were made in various colors. The material is not acetate. It appears to be nylon as the temples and frame material shoes typical flexibility and surface structure of nylon made shades. The coral reef effect is made of a thin metal and plastic combination screwed into appositly cut relief slits within the temples.
The lens is a one piece plastic shape, screwed on to a hidden nylon frame, which, on it’s bridge, beholds an engraved VERSACE Medusa logo.
The coral reef is masterfully executed with great attention to detail, where the colors with golden and silver metal shining between the coral, pearls and star fish vibrantly shimmer. The coral reef effect has been screwed via tiny screws to the temples. The corals extend and protrude off the temples to cover up the outer sides of the frame as if growing and taking over the entire shades. A very drammatic and typical VERSACE touch. This effect, however, does not in any way affect the wearer’s eye sight.
The temples are screwed together to the frame and bare a VERSACE printed logo, one on each outer front side of the temples. The inner end part of each temple bares the “made in Italy” inscription, as well as the model and color code numbers: “VERSACE mod 4076 H col 536 8G”, on the right and left sides, respectfully.
Due to the details on these sunglasses, we believe it would have been near to impossible to make them out of acetate but a cost effective solution could have also been the reason for manufacturing this specific model in any other material then acetate.
