Prada released these charming illustrations of Spring 2011’s “Minimal Baroque” eyewear as part of a promotional project, and illustrations will be part of a gallery on Prada.com “To underscore the uniqueness and creativity which lie behind the production of these accessories Prada has opted to given an account of eyewear through the work of three illustrators…Ivo Bisignano, Marcela Gutierrez and Andrea Tarella,”
“Curves, friezes and bas-relief effects are the main design features of the Minimal-Baroque. The colour combinations: white/blue, white/black and white/honey with the choice of acetate, seamlessly coordinate the lines of the frame front and arms sculpted into rococo curls, whose decoration is the distinctive feature.”
The “Minimal-Baroque” capsule collection will be sold starting in February at limited Prada boutiques, select department stores and Ilori eyewear stores (pricing upon request). And if you don’t manage to get your hands on one of these 500 unique pairs of shades, Prada will be releasing two more models from the Minimal-Baroque collection in April.
