Silhouette Sunglasses

Silhouette sunglasses were first introduced in the early 1970s. They were designed to protect the eyes from the sun's harmful rays while also providing a stylish look. Indeed, they are designed to hug the contours of your face. The original silhouette sunglasses were made with a plastic frame and featured dark lenses. 


Austrian optician, Dr Wilhelm Horst, wrote a paper entitled "Sunglasses with Curved Lenses", which outlined his idea for a new type of sunglass lens. This paper caught the attention of the Austrian company Intersport, who asked Dr Horst to develop his idea further. In 1974, Silhouette was founded and began selling its first line of sunglasses made using the original curved lens design.


Today, many different silhouette sunglasses are available for both men and women. They come in metal and plastic frames, and the lenses are scratch-resistant and provide 100% UV protection. Another great thing about Silhouette sunglasses is that they're incredibly comfortable to wear. They're lightweight and have adjustable nose pads so that you can find the perfect fit for your face.


Are silhouette sunglasses polarised?

Silhouette sunglasses are an excellent choice for those who want polarised lenses in Australia. The lenses of Silhouette sunglasses are treated with a special coating that helps reduce glare and improve clarity. This makes them ideal for driving or spending time outdoors in bright conditions.
