The Italian-made collection reflects the identity of the iconic brand with its distinctive features. Pioneering and cuttingedge, Tom Rebl combines research and tradition, with five models featuring iconic shapes and unisex fitting. Tom Rebl was the first and exclusive brand in the eyewear fashion world to introduce the “used look”: through special surface treatments applied by hand, the collection features exclusive, modern and cutting-edge secondhand looks. Total black is the colour concept of the collection: using the exclusive bio-acetate M49 by Mazzucchelli, Tom Rebl eyewear simply focuses on the black colour for its debut through a search of contrasts and finishes creating a rich colour proposal based on black only, thanks to the combination with Zeiss sun lenses. Particular attention was paid to techno details. By focusing on the tailor-made concept that distinguishes the brand, Tom Rebl transfers the concept of couture to the eyewear sector, with techno details like the hinges in brushed steel, exclusive to the collection. Completing the collection, Tom Rebl features a unique Italianmade, handcrafted leather case, paying homage to the Tom Rebl brand: pride in being unique. For more information visit www. tomrebleyewear.com.
