Urban Lite is one of Silhouette’s award winning collections of acetate frames. Why are they so amazing? I think the name is probably a bit of a give away. They are light and the designs are modern unlike your typical silhouette frames which have always been associated with appealing to the older generation. The materials used for this collection are simply clever because they are offer plastic frames without having to compromise on the weight.
Another unique selling point of the Urban Lite collection is the proven hinge technology, smooth sliding properties, maintenance free durability and not forgetting the introduction of integrated nose pads (for a selection of the models).
I mentioned a moment ago these frames are uber light but guess how light??? I think you may be shocked… they only weigh in at an incredible 4.1 grams, which is 40% lighter than the average plastic frames. Another exciting thing is that they also come in a range of new colours that will work with any wardrobe. New colours include Cranberry Red, Oyster Grey and Navy Blue in men’s styles and Ruby Red, Soft Jade, Lilac Blue, Peachy Nude, Fuchsia and Marsala in the women’s frames.
Another interesting fact, the Urban Lite frame was awarded the renowned IF Design Award for excellent design and outstanding design achievements in 2015. So if you are buying these frames you are not just buying an ordinary frame, a lot of design work and technology has gone into them to ensure us specs wearers are wearing something comfortable and stylish.
