A highlight of the collection are two frames made of buffalo horn, a natural product with signature harmonious colors and patterns. That’s why every model made of this material is unique and helps the wearer make a real fashion statement. STEPPER EYEWEAR Germany also produces models using titanium, a solid, premium material with an intricate design. The frames are as subtle as they are elegant, which underscores their excellent craftsmanship.

Alongside the Architekt Kollektion, the Signature Collection is the second premium series in the ZEISS EYEWEAR portfolio. ZEISS stands for precise, top-quality customized lenses, and these frames perfectly round off the ZEISS look.

A range of models from the basic and sunglasses collections are also available. ZEISS and STEPPER EYEWEAR add new models to the collections every year. All the frames are available worldwide via the STEPPER EYEWEAR distribution network.
