Modern style from the ‘Master of Minimalism’ – ck by Calvin Klein exclusively at Solaris stores in Dubai

Published February 4th, 2009 - 08:04 GMT

Stylish eyewear has become a must have among Dubai’s fashion conscious and Solaris caters to the demand with sunglasses made of luxurious and high quality material and clean and contemporary silhouette. For the first time ever in the Middle East, the region’s high-end sunglass retailer has exclusively launched the ck by Calvin Klein brand in stores across Dubai, to give customers a taste of high-end minimalism.

As an eyewear brand for the urban and active individual, the collection comprises fashionable and youthful designs, which appeals to not only the young but also to the young at heart.

Glamorous Calvin Klein sunglasses are structurally modern with sculpted clean lines and modern styles. Elegant shapes and clean lines form the latest collection. Pure ck innovation extends to a variety of lightweight and gracefully curved frames in a wide range of sizes and colours. The collection also boasts colour-coordinated lenses that are of the highest quality.

The new collection reflects the designer’s quintessential style. Often referred to as the ‘Master of Minimalism’, Klein has translated his ‘less is more’ philosophy beautifully into his sunglass collection, which reflects a pure design sensibility and expert craftsmanship.

It is no wonder then that the brand is an obvious choice for those seeking a taste of understated class and mystery and includes a celebrity fan-following comprising Alicia Keys, Avril Lavigne, Scarlett Johansson and Oprah Winfrey.

Commenting on the launch of the brand in the region, Tatyana Grenvitch, Brand Marketing Manager – Solaris Middle East said: “As the leading French eyewear house, it is only fitting that we add the internationally acclaimed brand to our already existing portfolio of designer brands. The latest ck sunglass collection with its unexpected lines, bold minimalism and vibrant colours creates a strong fashion statement for today’s modern woman.”
