Burberry Eyewear The Trench Collection

May 13, 2014: Burberry has launched The Trench Collection of eyewear which is, of course, inspired by the iconic Burberry trench coat. With trench coat being light and comfortable to wear, the eyewear collection follows the same principles, and reflects many of the coat’s signature design details. Temple tips are leather- wrapped with tonal stitching, taking inspiration from the distinctive leather-clad trench buckle. Nose pads feature polished metal supports which echo the coat’s metal hook-and-eye neck fastening. The Burberry check is featured across the collection from the bespoke nose pads, to the enameled and engraved details on the inner and outer temples.
 
Designed in Britain and hand-made in Italy, each step is a custom process, starting with the mixing and colouring of acetate in a spectrum of trench shades. The nose pads are cast from a bespoke mould bearing the Burberry check pattern and are adjustable to ensure the frames comfortably fit all face shapes. Temple tips are hand-wrapped with leather. Frames are assembled by hand and the check is enamel painted on the inner temples
 
Apart from sunglasses, the collection also offers optical frames for men with the same design philosophy.
