|Marchon incorporates Made in the Shades clip technology|
Under a licensing agreement between Marchon Eyewear and Made in the Shades Optical, Marchon is manufacturing and distributing bridge-mounted clip-on sunwear under the United States patent owned by Made in the Shades. The bridge-mounted clip-on attaches to the frame at the bridge. Unlike traditional clips, there is no top bar or mounting hooks on the upper portion of the frame. Marchon has incorporated the technology, which it calls Illusion Clip-ons, into 15 of its new Calvin Klein styles. Shapes consist of almond, rectangular, butterfly, oval and other designs in such colors as teal, satin burgundy, antique blue, olive and gunmetal. Lenses are brown or gray and feature 100 percent UVA and UVB protection. In the future all metal, stainless-steel and titanium Calvin Klein frames will come with the new clip-ons, according to Marchon.
