In true scandinavian style

The Copenhagen-based Fleye decided the 18th century botanical print needed a fresh, new take for the new season and used it for the inspiration for their latest eyewear collection.

Using paper thin layers of acetate

With honey and rose gold tones, the creative team at Fleye aimed to subtly recreate the effect of floating leaves and petals. The Spring-Summer 2019 collection features 29 colorful designs that are exactly the kind modern design have come to know and love from Danish. Offering a selection of both eye and sunglasses, you can find models made from acetate, titanium and a carbon/wood mix.

If you’re in the market for feminine designs with a strong graphic attitude, Fleye’s Flora Danica-inspired collection could be the thing you are looking for.
