What’s In Your Glasses?

You say plastic, I say metal. Let’s call the whole thing off?

No, we don’t have to. If you can’t decide which way you’re going to go when choosing a pair of glasses, get dressed up in Dior Homme’s new Blacktie 2.0 and have it all – it’s a patented double layer of the highest quality Japanese acetate around light metal, yet ultra-thin so it’s the ultimate slim shade-y.

Available in four styles, each model cuts a stylish figure inspired by the impeccable craft of Japanese ateliers, enhanced by the ingenuity of its dual-material structure. So, set your sights on having it all – both plastic and metal – in one pair of sunglasses.
