Fashion retailer, Aéropostale announced the launch of its new Aéropostale Kids Eyewear collection, with A&A Optical, a manufacturer and distributor of eyewear frames and the brand’s eyewear partner. Aéropostale is a leading global teen retailer and manufacturer of Gen-Z-specific fashion. The collaboration is designed to create kid-friendly eyewear that accounts for the unique fit and proportions of children’s facial features. The new eyewear collection will launch an expansion of Aéropostale’s existing frame collection manufactured by A&A Optical.
“We drew inspiration from Aéropostale’s rich heritage of casual and contemporary fashion,” said A&A Optical product development managers Walter Roth and Josh Vickery. “The frames reflect the spirit of adventure, freedom, and youthful energy that the brand is known for, bringing that essence into the eyewear designs.”
With vibrant and colorful designs directly inspired by the colorways of Aéropostale stores, the Aéropostale Kids Eyewear collection boasts a bold and playful selection of frames that extend the brand’s messages of self-expression, embracing individuality, and inclusion to a younger audience. The frames feature lightweight materials, flexible hinges, and adjustable nose pads, creating a collection that is carefully crafted to withstand the active lifestyles of kids.
“The launch of Aéropostale’s Gen-Z eyewear collection last July has turned into a tremendous success,” said Robert Liener, president of A&A Optical. “In the first three quarters of sales, we have been able to exceed the goals and projections of sales by a significant margin. Because of this success, we just launched the Aéropostale Kids Eyewear collection. Our expectations are that the frame lines will continue to get stronger traction, as well as help A&A Optical expand our international presence.”
