The new Fabri Fibra x FILA Eyewear sunglasses The exclusive model will be available from April 2020

On the occasion of the imminent launch of Fabri Fibra's new album and just a few months after the release of the album "Best Of" to celebrate eighteen years of career, FILA Eyewear has created in collaboration with the Senigallia rapper an exclusive model of sunglasses. The eyeglasses has a classic and contemporary aesthetic that reflects the style of an artist whose work has been a bridge between generations and has played an important role to the spreading of hip hop in Italy. When, during the release, he was asked what his relationship with sunglasses was and whether he was using them to hide his tiredness, the rapper said:

"I think all people wear sunglasses to hide tiredness, it happened to everyone. I have a very transparent relationship with glasses, we do everything in the sunlight."

The eyeglasses chosen for this collaboration combines the "sport-lifestyle" vocations of FILA's DNA with the homage to a model that looks at the history of hip-hop. Its style is based on the juxtaposition of different materials with the front resulting from the overlap of two acetates and the two-tone rods customized by the inscription FILA & Fabri Fibra inside, with five colorways available and different types of lenses that from opaque to nuanced to mirrored. When asked about Fibra's favourite and whether a pair of glasses could contribute to the success of a look, he replied:

"I'll answer this question as Elton John would: absolutely yes. At the moment I really like the all-dark model, but the choice is wide.

The FILA Eyewear x Fabri Fibra collaboration will be presented to the public during the MIDO 2020 eyewear show, which will take place in Milan between February 29th and March 2nd, and will be available to the public from April.
