Silhouette eyewear is an excellent application of an excellent idea. A bullseye, in design terms. A vision of huge proportions, finished without making a compromise. A name like Silhouette glasses promises to play with light, contrast and foreground objects, dim them out or background them. An experience with Silhouette glasses is like a realisation, or an epiphany, that everything we see is just geometry on the move. This is what the brand name Silhouette implies: it's your duty to foreground yourself.
Boss By Hugo Boss Glasses plays with this concept a little as well. The bold glasses always make an impression. They are the foreground. But that's only one half of the Silhouette equation. The other half is what Silhouette glasses offer. A chance to show off your most important asset: you.
It's only an application of what we already know. Frames are called frames because they frame things. So when a frame is very light, that means we are the foreground. There's something there, within yourself, that's worth foregrounding. And it's true, because you believe it.
For an example of exactly how this works, here's the Silhouette 7395 glasses. Notice the fact that it's basically invisible. You become the center of attention.
This sort of almost invisible model is denigrated sometimes, by people who think if you don't want striking glasses you should just get contacts. But you know better. You don't need contacts, or want them. You want glasses that speak volumes about you. These are the glasses you want, and don't let anybody make you second-guess yourself.
Perhaps it is just that Silhouette glasses are only for emotionally honest people. People to whom it matters whether people are looking at them, or their glasses. But these are fine people who appreciate design and aesthetics. There's no reason to get contacts, when you can get Silhouette eyewear. It's better than contacts.
This daring eyewear just goes to show you're not afraid of anything – least of all what people think. Life is for living, and good optics are for wearing. Whether you're a cop, a lawyer, or an accountant... work in a supermarket, or volunteer in the soup kitchen – having emotional honesty is very important for person to person interactions. Glasses that take over too much of your appearance can sometimes obscure the real you – and if it's the real you you're eager to show off – then Silhouette optics might be just what the optometrist ordered!
