Lyrics in the Jackson 5 song, “ABC,” the sitcom “Three’s Company,” the Trinity, winning a “3-peat,” and the saying “third time’s the charm.”
Three-piece mounts are taking on a trendier look as these styles are popping into not only optical but sun collections as well, featuring unique shapes, temples and lens treatments.
(Top to Bottom) The retro cat eye is getting a unique update with this style from Silhouette. This rimless style, part of the new Essence collection, features a striking shape coupled with a rosé color gradation and features high-tech titanium and SPX, a durable and flexible material specially developed by Silhouette. Marchon’s Chloé brand showcases floral charm and unique craftsmanship with its new Rosie frame style. This eye-catching, 3-piece sunglass is equipped with 4mm premium lenses that are multifaceted and finely molded to evoke the shape of a flower. Modern glamour is infused with sophistication in this sleek rimless optical style from De Rigo REM’s Chopard collection. The VCHC53S style from the iconic Happy Heart collection, features a classic lens silhouette, elevated by dual heart detailing on the temples, creating a chic and modern look.
Heavier and thicker frames are taking a back seat to these “less is more” three-piece mounts. While these lightweight rimless looks can be a minimalist’s dream, they can offer bold variations with their shapes and lens treatments. These rimless styles are anything but boring.
