Kenmark has announced the upcoming launch of the Zac Posen Eyewear Collection. The assortment features optical and optical sun styles for women and men and will launch at Vision Expo West in Las Vegas from September 18 to 20.
Zac Posen’s vision for modern American glamour combines couture technique with striking innovation. His collections have grown to include Zac Posen, ZAC Zac Posen, Z Spoke Zac Posen, Truly Zac Posen, and offerings in handbags, hosiery, accessories, fur and now eyewear.
Posen’s creations, worn by leading women including Uma Thurman, First Lady Michelle Obama, Gwyneth Paltrow and Naomi Watts, have become a staple on the red carpet. Most recently, Zac has been serving as judge with Heidi Klum and Nina Garcia on Lifetime’s mainstay Project Runway, in its thirteen season.
“I am thrilled to launch my collection this fall,” said Posen. “The eyewear perfectly evokes the true essence of the Zac Posen brand: timelessly stylish with a modern sensibility and edge.”
Inspired by Posen’s ready-to-wear collection, the women’s collection includes 12 optical styles and three optical sun styles available in September 2014. Additional styles will release in December. Design features include chic, feminine eye-shapes and architectural, dramatic lines to enhance the natural beauty of a woman’s face.
In addition to the women’s offering, the Zac Posen men’s collection, comprising of 12 optical styles and three optical sun styles, will be available in September 2014. The styles showcase a combination of hallmarks of golden-era Hollywood with a modern-day touch. Using masculine shapes and materials such as classic European tortoises, rich metals, and signature hardware, the collection is a great addition to the men’s category.
“We are thrilled to officially launch the Zac Posen Collection. Over the past year, Zac has been hands-on with our team and the result is a one-of-a-kind collection that celebrates the Zac Posen aesthetic and fine craftsmanship. We look forward to the continued partnership,” said Kenmark’s Chief Executive Officer, Mike Cundiff.
