The Linda Farrow product offering complements Marchon’s extensive brand portfolio by offering a unique, fashion-forward line of luxury frames designed with superior craftsmanship, ultra-fine details, and uncompromised quality. The brand is known for its collaborations with many of the world’s most acclaimed designers and is well-known and loved by celebrities and influencers such as Margot Robbie, Beyonce, Rihanna, and Hailey Bieber.

Sun and optical frames are conceived in London and meticulously handcrafted by master engineers in Japan, using the finest and premium materials to bring the designs to life. Headquartered in London, Linda Farrow currently has boutiques in the UK, Uruguay, Hong Kong, Taiwan, and Shanghai and is stocked in more than 1,000 doors in countries worldwide.

This agreement leverages the unique scale and expertise of Marchon Eyewear’s U.S. distribution network, which enables the company and its partners to identify and target an audience reflecting the brand’s equity and DNA. In the case of Linda Farrow, the collection will be exclusively sold at select high-end independent optical stores throughout the region.
