It just takes one quick look at the new Fixie—Balmain Eyewear’s recently introduced distinctive rimless style—to note that it clearly channels the sleekly 80s spirit that is so often spotted on Olivier Rousteing’s Paris runways. In order to create Fixie’s audacious lines and advanced construction, Akoni’s artisans have relied on the latest breakthroughs in lens-and-frame construction, helping to make Fixie’s daring contours a bold choice for those considering shield sunglass options.
And, with each Fixie option riffing on a signature Balmain color combinations, it’s no surprise that this silhouetten was last seen perched on the noses of Balmain’s diverse army of nonchalant models during Olivier Rousteing most recent Paris presentations to the world’s fashion press.
