Zilli SunglassesIt's been two years in the making, but Zilli is finally releasing its second eyewear collection.

The new lines features 12 new styles: six spectacles and six sunglasses. These designs interpret Zilli's two key concepts: The Famous Painters and The Famous Chefs. These seem like off the wall inspirations, but Zilli says the themes "symbolize the pleasure and hedonism" it holds dear.

As with the label's first eyewear line, the glasses will be available in 24ct yellow gold and titanium with a ruthenium base. The company's also added 24ct white gold styles to this season's new line. These styles are all available in matte and glossy versions.

Zilli's used Japanese-made acetates in strong, masculine colors including blue, maroon, and plum. The reflective effects, two-toned color schemes, and striking trompe l'oeil finishes help make the frames seem more exciting than the average.

While Zilli is known as a menswear line, I predict its clean, minimalist approach will find plenty of female fans too. It's also worth noting that each of the new models can be adapted with progressive lenses.

Zilli will debut its new eyewear when it makes first appearance at the Tax Free Association Asia Pacific Show in Singapore later this month. It will then be rolled out to boutiques in 32 countries around the world.
