Surprisingly light: Self-confidence interpreted weightlessly

The new Jos. Eschenbach collection.

Clear and carefree, sovereignly diverse and unambiguous in the style statement at the same time: Jos. Eschenbach’s central theme is redefined with the “Self Confidence” models. In the current collection, a strong material comes in surprising lightness in the form that is so characteristic of the Jos. Eschenbach look. Freedom: this is the desire for lightness, for freedom of choice but also for leaving everything unnecessary aside. Precisely here at the interception of the usual feather-light design and precision-fitting wearing comfort a signature look arises which dispenses with everything unnecessary and thus makes straight-to the-point design statements.

Modern materials, relaxed colours with expressive eye-catchers, perfectly formed interpretations of panto and square: Surprisingly light is fit-for-the-future, sustainable vision and fashionable lifestyle – effortless and uncomplicated, everyday and perfect in form. Lightness has literally been written into the DNA of these high-precision models. Created from ultra-light, biocompatible and durable titanium, they embody everyday style partnership for people who appreciate and seek timeless, fashionable freedom. With the strong material of titanium, consistent design is not just a promise.

Self Confidence and Natural Basics: universal panto, striking square and harmoniously round forms likewise provide fashionable light-heartedness through their combination of strong presence, skilful play with proportions and a large range of skilfully presented quiet and accentuated trend tones. Coloured on the inside; on the outside wearable / unexcited / restrained: Jos. Eschenbach wearers don’t have to lay it on thick to be fashionable. For a straightforward look which relies on the experience and values of a 100-year tradition and the highest quality craftsmanship – and at the same time remains as valid tomorrow as its wearers are.

Natural Basics

The Natural Basics are by no means just reticent models: their dominant form on the upper eye rim and their colour-contrasting low rim profile break with the usual silhouettes and create a new basic theme. The traditional eye rim thus shifts and opens up for new broadness and lightness. The acetate temple tips envelop beta titanium temples which create optimal comfort, thanks to their flexible material and material-reducing embossing.

Both models also offer a great freedom of choice as unisex models: as a harmoniously round form and as a panto which, thanks to its striking contours on the upper rim, provides a formal counterbalance to the natural colouring of the glasses. The subtle two-tone colouring provides moments of surprise in this wearable classic; for contrasting tones do not just give the inner side of the front and temples a self-confident look, but also place the focus on the upper eye rim. Straight lines go hand in hand with a discreet two-tone colour scheme that runs through: these basics are long-lasting classics.

Self Confidence Titanium-Acetate

Confidently taking a stand for contrasts and drawing from the tension between different materials and colours: in the combination of titanium and acetate Jos. Eschenbach calmly unites straightforwardness and a fashionable statement. Compact and simple meets coolness: the front as a one piece titanium construction with separately attached cheeks dares to contrast with shiny, slightly translucent acetate temples. The lightness and clarity of the temples is given special elegance through a matt finish – here even warm colours stay cool.

Rich, restrained colours give the men’s model a harmonious look. Natural and clear on the outside and eye-catching on the inside: the sovereign casualness of the precisely milled square form is enhanced through the two-tone play on colours. Compelling too is the universal panto, which as a classic model also plays with feminine notes thanks to its colour variations on the inner side. For here, apart from cool, clear tones, the focus is also on warm nuances. What they all have in common: Self Confidence lives light-heartedly here in straightforward success forms and subdued colours for every occasion.
