Prime Line | The first and original collection

teaser-image

First and somehow primitive in its concept, Prime Line is the most original interpretation of collection txtl001’s special fusion of surgical steel to high-end cotton fabrics.

The chromatically harmonized colours are influenced by nature and the light-weave sober fabrics, manufactured by Lanificio F.lli Cerruti (Cerruti Woolen Mills) and inspired by their military archives of the 1920s and 40s, though artisanal and very precious, convey a trademark tactile expressiveness.

Esthetically refined and intimately appealing, Prime Line is the strongest advocate of HAPTER’s design pillars: functionality and essentiality, thanks to a decisive but discreet radicality.

Several award-winning design solutions are condensed into this single-piece frame, featuring no hinges or solderings, yet totally shapable on the face and extremely comfortable thanks to a feather-weight of just 12 grams.

All Prime Line sunglasses models are equipped with ultra-resistant Carl ZEISS lenses in nylon with 5 layers of anti-reflection.

Avant-garde and courageous, Icons Line is a design project which offers a new interpretation, in signature HAPTER TXTL001 style, design and materials, of iconic styles enriched by cultural significance which creates a strong evocative power.

Icons Line introduces in HAPTER’s structural syntax a unique stylistic and functional trademark: the wide and dominant bridge in contrasting fabric, creates a distinctive retro-mountain look, while protecting the delicate forefront in harsh weather conditions. Another example of how form and function perfectly integrate in HAPTER.

All Icons Line sunglasses are equipped with almost-flat scratch-resistant Carl ZEISS sun lenses in nylon, with special treatments for maximum protection also in extreme atmospheric conditions: HiPro flash mirroring, 5-layers anti-reflective coating, hydro-phobic and anti-fog treatment.
