The French label has inked a licence deal with the Italian eyewear group for the design, production and worldwide distribution of its eyeglasses and sunglasses. The first models will be launched by summer 2021.
Most collaborations, limited editions and pop-ups are, quite frankly, loud on buzz but short on beautiful product. One exception to that rule is that of Ermenegildo Zegna and LA-headquartered Fear of God.
The Italian eyewear group has bought a 70% stake in Blenders Eyewear LLC from Chase Fisher, who founded the company in 2012 and remains as CEO with a 30% interest. The company’s full valuation was $90 million.
