Luxottica: Club Monaco Eyewear

TRADITION PARTNERS WITH MODERNITY

Luxottica Group presents its premiere Club Monaco Eyewear collection, consisting of 14 ophthalmic styles and 11 sunglasses. A must-have brand for urban professionals, the new eyewear line is a collection of chic styles that complement a modern lifestyle. Inspired by vintage frames found on the Italian coast, the collection is distinguished by its mix of resin, Italian horn and leather-wrapped styles in modern interpretations of classic designs: i.e., the perfect aviator detailed with leather accents. The color palette reflects Club Monaco’s black and white brand heritage.
