Marchon Eyewear launches Chloe Sunwear. The debut line, which consists of 16 plastic and seven metal styles, embodies the iconic elements seen throughout the brand’s ready-to-wear collections. Feminine silhouettes are created with soft shapes and classic colorations, and enhanced with soft curves and such details as a metal zipper, metal petal cuts in plastic and mirrored lenses. Highlights include a classic metal aviator with leather eye rims, a bold square and an acetate cateye with innovative metal clip details inspired by the Chloe accessories collection. The color palette ranges from blue, brick, green, ivory, tortoise and yellow to such combinations as cream/beige, gold/green and red/coral. A 28-piece optical collection was presented in the March issue of 20/20.

Chloe was founded in 1952 by Gaby Aghion, an Egyptian-born Parisian who had a vision and coined the phrase “pret-a-porter,” meaning ready-to-wear. The name Chloe was chosen for its warm, feminine appeal and was perfectly in sync with the new, youthful mood in Paris: modern in design and slightly audacious in spirit.
