“Michael Stars has been a continual pioneer in creating ‘casual couture’ since its founding in 1986. Our design direction for eyewear mirrors the company’s passion for relaxed, wearable silhouettes that complement a woman’s everyday wardrobe,” says Jill Gardner, Signature’s senior vice president of designs. “Colors are inspired by the Michael Stars palette and California beach tones—dune, aqua and reef.”
Merchandising materials include one- and three-place displays, countercards, block with image and logo block. Cases reflect the look of the signature “shine” fabric in Michael Stars clothing and are available in black sparkle and silver sparkle.
