The Marc Jacobs 2013 eyewear collection features four new sunglasses with a vintage-chic spirit: bold geometric shapes and thick volumes give these models a contemporary personality with a lovely retro twist.
A large, flat silhouette and square shape with skilfully rounded edges is the predominant focus of these women’s sunglasses. Their stunning colour contrasts and translucent nuances on the front and pearled tones on the temples define the elegance of this model. Refined stylistic details, such as the unique hinge exclusively developed for the Marc Jacobs eyewear collection, denote quality and elegance. The temples feature clean, simple yet sophisticated profiles, highlighted by thin metal details.
These sunglasses reflect the new 2013 collection’s colour palette: blue, turquoise, red and green, as well as classic tones of black and brown.
The round-shaped models have an oversize silhouette with clean, slim profiles. The vintage-inspired allure stems from appealing colour contrasts between natural tones of striped Havana on the front and pearled nuances on the temples, illuminating the frame that comes in shades of black, brown, Havana, Havana red and Havana green
The round-shaped men’s models look to the past with their 40’s-inspired style which is emphasised by bold volumes and elegant details, such as the rivets that frame the front and the clearly visible metal core on the temples. The colour palette is vibrant and made up of red with tone-on-tone mirrored lenses, dark Havana with green lenses, transparent brown with blue lenses, dark gray with brown lenses, transparent light blue with mirrored shaded green lenses and transparent ochre with gray lenses.
The flat, geometric-shaped glasses are 80’s rock-inspired. The temples metal core and the rivets on the front are unique signature details of this model. The colour palette includes nuances of striped brown/horn with dark brown lenses, dark Havana with brown lenses, gray with brown lenses, mélange blue with Havana blue lenses, black with gray lenses and green Havana with green lenses.
Following the fantastical Marc Jacobs Winter 12 Collection and the chic Crystal sunglasses seen with luxurious oversized hats on that icy blue runway, the unique and glamorous look of the eyewear collection returns in a new easy-to-wear version with the latest models created for Spring/Summer 2013.
The new models maintain that sense of sparkle with an understated twist: a single crystal that illuminates the temple tips and denotes a unique and individual style.
The round-shaped acetate model features bold volumes that are balanced with translucent shades, in line with the colour palette of Marc Jacobs’ 2013 ready-to-wear and accessories collections: olive, brown, red and ochre, perfectly combined with gray lenses.
