German eyewear specialist Rodenstock has introduced its Spring/Summer 2020 collection to worldwide travel retail.

The new collection was launched this month and offers modern reinterpretations of the company’s most successful archive styles. Collection highlights include two new sunglasses models, and an innovative new ‘3D acetate’ range.

The two new sunglasses models, R7416 and R7417, are made with lightweight but durable titanium and RXP. They also feature a narrow temple design and come in brown and black lens shades.

The new 3D acetate range comes in two models, R3315 and R3316, which each come in four colours. The new range is the result of Rodenstock’s acetate layering technique.
