Inspired by Nature

Inspired by Nature

We work closely with our partners in Japan to create unique proprietary colors. These colors are inspired by nature and we work with an array of talented photographers to help us with this inspiration. This season we brought these colors to some of our classic styles. We want you to have the best, so we work tirelessly on creating unique pieces that not only last generations but look and feel incredible. 

The SALT. Optics Artie in the exclusive Desert Fog color

Desert Fog

Warm summer nights in the desert mountains inspired this color. We worked to get the fade just right. The SALT. core wire is a discoverable feature and part of our unique design language. No need for big logos or ornate pieces that need constant care. To see what's available in Desert Fog, click here.

The Jennings in Matte Indigo Fog. An exclusive color only found at SALT. Optics

Matte Indigo Fog

Indigo is SALT.'s brand color. Inspired by the ancient Japanese art of creating Indigo dye. Indigo is one of the oldest plant dyes and was brought to Japan over 1400 years ago. Originally was only available to the Imperial Court but soon became popular and synonymous with the common people of Japan. This color looks and feels stunning in person. Check out the entire Matte Indigo Fog collection here.

SALT. Aldan in Coastal Fog. Custom made acetates from Japan

Coastal Fog

This color has been popular for us. The transition from blue to clear was inspired by ocean waves breaking on shore. We managed to bring this color to a large collection of our popular products, from bold sun styles to classic optical shapes. Check out the entire Coastal Fog collection here.

SALT. Cookie in the custom Rose Fog color

Rose Fog

Our rose colors are soft and delicate. We experimented in making a classic rose fade and when we saw this color, we knew we landed on something special. It was perfect for the classic Cookie style found on most opticians shelves. Check out the Rose Fog collection by clicking here.

The glacial rivers of Iceland brought so much inspiration to our design team. This color is one of our favorites. Check out the Glacier collection.
