Lila Design Details
The sleek and colossal frame with rectangular lenses instantly lends you a superstar aura as you put them on. With a bold, oversized angular shape, the eyewear boasts a subtly upswept top rim that glamorously embraces the eyes and gives you a cat-like vibe. With clean, classic lines and a distinctively shaped browline, the shades are an object of instant attraction. A slightly curved, smooth base with rounded edges provides an ideal finishing touch that softens up your features, and lifts your cheekbone. An exaggerated framework creates an air of swag and confidence needed to stand firm in the competitive world. Well-groomed yet pointed end pieces radiate a potent mix of elegance and eccentricity to your side look. The long and lean temple arms extend to the ear seamlessly. Uplift your wardrobe style with Lila.
Custom cellulose acetate, a biodegradable and plant-based material, is used to make the frames. It is flexible, durable, hypoallergenic, and environmentally friendly. Acetate also helps Lila to keep its radiance, shape, vibrant colors, and patterns over time. Akulon-coated screws and barrel hinges provide durability to the frames. Repeated hand-polishing with a wheel helps to achieve a glossy finish. Lila’s complete acetate framework makes it lightweight and comfortable to wear all day. The non-prescription lenses use CR-39, which is half the weight of glass, making them easy to carry. These premium polarized lenses ensure maximum color intensity and clarity. Prescription lenses use Polycarbonate, which is an impact-resistant material that keeps the lenses from shattering and breaking when subjected to various external factors. The lenses are treated with anti-reflective and anti-scratch coatings that enhance vision and decrease eye strain. These high-quality lenses block 100% of UVA and UVB rays, thus protecting the eyes.
