X-Ide: energy and personality for a world of color

A new collection dedicated to people who want to express the unique details of their personality

The models presented at Silmo 2013 are quintessentially X-IDE: all the brand's distinctive elements - such as silicone, resin or stitching in nylon thread - are used to create new frames combined with highly impactful lively colors. There's no longer any need to show the logo: X-IDE is instantly recognizable because of its signature details that don't go unnoticed.


Not only: X-IDE continues to amaze because of its research into technique and color, the workmanship of skillful artisans who perpetuate the tradition of Made in Italy.


Presented at Mido with huge success, the silicone temple is proposed again in two new models, Shifters and Spokes, the former has a metal front and the latter has a painted acetate front with a soft touch rubber effect. Non-allergic, breathable and biocompatible, silicone can be twisted easily to create amusing plays of color on the temples.


Contrasting hues also for metal model Rear, where the application of special acetate laminates gives the unusual visual appearance of plastic when in actual fact the frame is made from superlight metal.
A meticulous study of color led to Stem, a limited edition model. A special photographic technique was used to transfer color to the metal frame to create a tartan pattern. The transparent resin coating on the eyewear adds a touch of originality while emphasizing the tartan that looks like real fabric.


Captivating color also for sunglasses with lenses in brilliant hues. Some bestselling models of previous seasons, like Factory and Urban, are now proposed with high quality, brightly colored mirrored sun filters in nuances that contrast with the trilayer acetate frame. A merry-go-round of hues for an X-IDE collection in the thousand shades of the rainbow!
