New York-Modo has introduced a range of retro-inspired styles with a modern touch. The company’s creative team went back to its roots to design a line of frames that embody the brand’s simplicity and sophistication and then added a mix of modern detailing.

The spring collection includes six new all-titanium metal frames, six acetates, and two new titanium/plastic combinations. Each frame is handmade and finished in Japan. Plastics are chosen from the finest Italian and Japanese handmade acetates each season.

Models 136 and 137 feature saddle bridge construction with coated enamel interior for comfort and a punchy pop of colored enamel on the temple tips in oval and a soft rectangular shape, respectively. Models 138, 139, 140, and 141 are ultra light with clean rimless titanium construction and a subtly designed minimal end piece and hinge with lenses in a soft rectangle, pantos round, larger deep angular rectangle, and unique cat eye, respectively. Temples are in beta-titanium for ultimate flexibility and comfort.

Models 211 and 212 are smaller scale acetates that mirror the oval and soft rectangle shapes of the 136 and 137. Dual colorations add extra interest, while bold enamel color pops up again on the temple tips to complete the story. Models 6025, 6026, 6027, and 6028 carry the company’s signature acetate concept with four unique new shapes including a modern oversized rectangle for women, petite women’s cat eye, a soft feminine rectangle, and a timeless men’s browbar with keyhole bridge, respectively.

Model 3031 and 3032 are timeless styles with a quintessential mix of acetate and titanium. The women’s cat eye (3031) incorporates acetate temples for a soft, classic appeal, while the men’s rectangle (3032) features an acetate brow accentuated by subtly textured titanium eye rims, bridge and temples.
