Quick Take: Blackfin, from Villa Eyewear, is debuting the Fall/Winter 2021/22 collection from its New Aura line.
Specifics: New Aura frames are thinner frames that combine beta-titanium and colorful nylon. Notable styles include McDowell, a slightly squared panto, and Yates, a softer, rounded frame. The frames’ gradient nylon rims appear to blend seamlessly with the titanium, and the color palette includes green, blue, silver grey, black gold, Bordeaux red, brown, amber gold and more.
Selling Point: All styles in the Blackfin Aura line are hypoallergenic, 100 percent bio-compatible, nickel-free and come with tilting nose pads in medical-grade PVC and adjustable, ergonomically designed Swordfish temple tips.
