Altair introduces bebe Black, a capsule collection consisting of four optical frames featured here and three sunglasses previewed in March 20/20. bebe Black brings a new dynamic to the coveted line with a greater emphasis on stones and studs. Shapes are trendy, yet wearable with a touch of glamour, dreamer or rocker, keeping true to the bebe brand DNA. All styles are offered in one size and are available in black only.

PHILOSOPHY: “Elevating the tone for all bebe eyewear categories, the bebe Black collection raises the bar and sets a distinct attitude that embodies a sexy, sophisticated look,” says Jillian Marro, brand manager. “Stones, studs and jewelry-like details are reminiscent of other high-end brands but are done in true bebe fashion.” 

MARKETING: Elegant black and Lucite merchandising materials are available, including a one-place frame highlighter, five-, six- and 10-place countertop displays, 36-place floor display, posters, countercards, mirrors and window clings. Frames come with a shiny black patent leather case.
