Marcolin, a worldwide leading company in the eyewear industry, was a major presence at Vision Expo East, the main event in the US for ophthalmic professionals, where eyecare meets eyewear and education, fashion and innovation mingle, held at the Jacob Javits Center.
Marcolin’s booth represented the company with a completely renewed look, in line with its corporate identity. The new interior furnishings and construction details had a contemporary appearance while the exterior of the booth has a stylistic reference to the Italian design of the 60s and 70s. The front of the booth displayed the company’s most prominent brands and had a special dedicated space to Harley-Davidson, with whom the partnership has been recently extended through 2027.
The booth showcased the new eyewear collections of the main licensed brands in Marcolin’s portfolio. Highlights include TOM FORD Eyewear, which features elevated designs and signature details with an elegant mix of materials for Spring/Summer 2023. The collection offers a compelling breadth of designs from modern to classic, incorporating the iconic ‘T’ logo and ‘infinity cross’ front. Silhouettes in varying thicknesses and distinguished details including beveled edges and various spoilers.
GUESS Eyewear revealed a new iconic detail for women, the “G Cube” logo pattern. The pattern immerses the sunglasses silhouette adding iconic texture-like fronts while on the optical styles, the G Cube pattern adorns the metal endpiece in a more subtle way for everyday wear. For men, GUESS introduces conventional yet stylish eyewear in key colorways that are suitable for both a younger and more mature guys. Max Mara Eyewear featured architectural details, interesting yet wearable shapes and colors, and clean and classic styling offering something for every woman, while adidas Sport Eyewear showcased a new half-rim wraparound frame with a more compact design and innovative curvature, equipped with aerodynamic and anti-fog holes, adjustable nose pads and side hinges built with a safety lock system to always guarantee safety and performance at the highest level.
