The OXYDO Spring/Summer 2017 collection features four sunglass models in round, cat-eye, and square silhouettes: O.No 1.1, O.No 1.2, O.No 1.3, and O.No 1. Bitonti (pictured). Each OXYDO collection features a design collaboration with a celebrated artist. And, the Spring/Summer 2017 col- lection highlights the synergy between OXYDO and New York artist Francis Bitonti, known for designing a 3D-printed gown for Dita Von Teese, and for Mutatio, a 3D-printed footwear collection. The OXYDO O.No 1. Bitonti features metal as well as an eccentric plastic element, created via a 3D-printing technique. Each OXYDO piece is available in a limited edition, and each frame is marked by an identifying progressive code (O.No.), which features "the numeric progression of the year and of the released style." Suggested retail pricing is $390 for O.No 1.1, O.No 1.2, and O.No 1.3. O.No 1. Bitonti retails for $535.
