Explanation:
direi "ridisegnati/migliorati nel design/ dal design rinnovato" e "con/dagli angoli arrotondati"

modify = adapt, improve, redesign, refashion, remodel Thesaurus Wordsworth

Per "pillowed" v. contesto qui:
Opticians are frequently asked what types of frames work best with particular face shapes. Jamie Niblock of Robert Marc advises keeping one basic guideline in mind when selecting a frame: "Choose a shape that contrasts with the shape of your face. If you have a round face, select something more linear. If your face is very angular and chiseled, go with something rounder. If you have a long face, choose a horizontal frame that breaks the lines of the face, such as an oval or a pillowed rectangle." Oval faces, of course, can carry just about any style of frame

mi sembra sia questo il senso ...
