MARCHON: FLEXON COLLECTION

FLEXON KEEPS MOVING

Marchon Eyewear relaunches its Flexon original memory metal collection with a revamped focus on design together with a continued emphasis on quality, style, fit and durability. “We are elevating our frame portfolio to the next level by showing Flexon is not only a technology brand, but an obvious choice for consumers looking for fashion and frame trend options,” Marchon says. The new collection is based on four design concepts inspired by the sleek and modern architectural elements that have remained timeless in design and structure: Structured Temple, characterized by modern styling and two-tone colorations; Beveled Temple featuring a beveled edge starting at the end piece and continuing the full length of the temple; Classic Concept with timeless styling; and Fashion Concept with metal fronts and injection temples enhanced with gradient colorations. The current Flexon Collection consists of 100-plus styles including Flexon Kids, Flexon Magnetics and Flexon Suns.
