CLASSIC AMERICAN COOL

Sàfilo Group Launches Tommy Hilfiger eyewear, which consists of a sunglass collection (featured here) and an ophthalmic collection to be previewed in an upcoming 20/20.

Nine styles are plastic, one is metal and five are plastic/metal combinations. The releases include a variety of aviators, vintage-inspired silhouettes, oversized designs, modern looks, a shield and a smaller sporty style.
