In the coming weeks, Europa Eyewear will introduce ultra-thin acetates into their Scott Harris line under the subcollection SH-UTX. The initial release of SH-UTX, will feature six ultra-thin acetate styles that offer lightweight comfort and the fresh styles, vibrant colours, and premium quality Scott Harris is known for.
“We wanted to create an ultra-thin collection that delivers all of the benefits of acetate, especially the rich colours, but make it more comfortable. Especially now that we are all wearing masks, having a lightweight frame makes a big difference in comfort by the end of the day,” said SH-UTX designer, Nico Roseillier.
Scott Harris UTX combines handmade acetate with high-tech heat compression, resulting in ultra-thin acetate with a higher density than HD acetate options in the market. The resulting material is roughly 50 per cent thinner than traditional acetate. Paired with stainless steel temples, SH UTX looks are lightweight, but heavy on style. Even the embedded hinge plate carries a peekaboo polka dot or stripe pattern visible through crystal colourways. The embedded hinge boasts a seamless transition from front to temple and is fully adjustable using a two-screw system.
The winter release of the first six styles offers designs for men and women in a wide range of colourways. More SH-UTX style will be added to the line throughout 2021.
