After bringing its eyewear collection in-house, and dropping its Endure athletic-style glasses, Balenciaga sunglasses return in the “Invisible” style.

Based on super-lightweight prescription glasses, the Invisible style’s frames are made of extra-thin metal, and it’s available in aviator, cat-eye, and rectangle silhouettes.

Balenciaga has reworked the classic aviator silhouette with an ultra-light, metal frame. Black, green, and brown colorways feature the label’s name in a repeating pattern across the lens. This flawlessly gaudy motif is also available on the yellow logomania cat lenses. The recurrent use of electric blue is a standout feature of this latest collection of glasses, and one that will no doubt see imitators as the weather warms up.

Perhaps the most obvious homage to the prescription lens is the Invisible Rectangle shades, with the solid electric blue metal frame that would look almost too much at home on a pharmacy glasses rack. Time will tell if they will have as much of an impact as the Endure wrap-around counterpart.
