CHARMANT: CHARMANT TITANIUM PERFECTION

TITANIUM WITH ATTITUDE

Charmant USA launches a new brand image for its flagship line, Charmant Titanium Perfection. “The market has seen significant changes in what the consumer wants. Today’s adults are more diverse than ever before and have a different attitude toward fashion than they did five or 10 years ago,” Dee Berghuys, Charmant director of product and marketing, explains. “The Charmant Titanium brand has evolved to attract a broader wearing audience and speaks to the individuality of today’s consumers.” Charmant Titanium now consists of 33 men’s frames and 29 women’s styles. Frames are divided into three segments, each with its own attitude: Signature Series, targeted to consumers who seek classic styling; Studio Series, appealing to those who appreciate form as well as function; and Statement Series, geared to individuals who want to make a statement.
