Retro Appeal in Modo's Spring/Summer 2010 Collection

New York, January 25, 2010

At a time when the "vintage" style is in trend, MODO introduces an elegant retro-inspired collection revisited into a modern style.

Included are ten new styles, seven acetates and three titanium. A look that has character yet is easy-to-wear, distinctive details, and unparalleled craftsmanship are the key-ingredients.

On the acetates, metal detailing on the temples is a key differentiator. Acetate styles such as style 6000 and 6004 incorporate sophisticated yet understated architecture-inspired metal details by the hinge. In the women's styles the insert takes the form of a wave, while in the men's it is geometric and straight.

All shapes are modern, clean and wearable. The collection balances cool blacks, greys and blues with a selection of textured, strong reds and purples.

Titaniums such as model 119, 120 and 121 represent the next generation of the MODO Retro sub-collection. Extremely light and flexible titanium, they incorporate a sculptural temple covered in an enamel coloring on the eye wires. Colors are a refined palette laid around tonal combinations of base metals like gun, gold and silver with enamel colorations such as walnut, navy, camel and bright red.

Each frame comes in a fashionable black leather case.

The new additions are part of the broader Modo collection along with two sub collections MODO Linea and MODO Classic. All collections will be presented at Mido 2010 in Milan and Vision Expo East 2010 in New York.
