In a first-of-its-kind collaboration between an eyewear company and the Principality of Monaco, and developed over the last two years, the GLBL Eyewear Group is proud to present the MONACO by EYE RESPECT sunglasses collection for Spring/Summer 2022.
“Our location in Monaco puts us in an incredibly unique position where we have been able to reflect the values, the culture, the vibrancy and pay homage to the constant evolution of this charming and unique place….” – Didier Coton, Chairman, The GLBL Eyewear Group
Designed by Chief Creative Officer Jonathan van Blerk and Head of Design, Stephane Emeric, the elegant, handcrafted designs in the collection embodies an evocative depiction of the history of Monaco, its traditional quarters, and the inspirational icons of the Municipality – past and present.
The collection oozes class and sophistication, presenting the very finest quality materials and advanced sun lenses for each inimitable piece. With features that include the official logos and colors of the Municipality of Monaco, the line pays homage to the extraordinary heritage of this most enchanting World Heritage site and its chic and colorful lifestyle, past and present.
An eye-catching masculine shape for astute men of power and class. The design is intricately textured and features high-definition sun lenses for night and day. Special details include a distinguished keyhole bridge, OBE techno pin hinges, and sculpted temple tips to achieve an incredibly ‘tailored’ comfortable piece for the very busy man.
A throwback to one of Monaco’s most adored princesses, Princess Grace, the frame is based on the iconic shape which she most loved to wear. With glamorous colorways and light graduated lenses, this piece has been created to be worn indoors or outdoors with equal comfort and a truly “graceful air”.
A sophisticated, powerful yet understated unisex shape. The dark lenses are used throughout with a lower position bridge to accentuate the style and the thick, delicately sculpted temples are stable and extremely comfortable, from dawn to dusk.
EYE RESPECT was born from a desire to pay homage to the long and distinguished histories of unique cultures, styles, and standards of craftsmanship.
From the mutual obsessions with design and quality comes a harmonious understanding of “sprezzatura”, the effortless combination of style and attention to detail that are inherent in cultures. around the globe.
Referencing key landmarks in Anglo-Italian style, – and now in Monaco – the collection today perfectly fuses traditional and contemporary traits influenced by a heritage focus, with appeal for a wide audience of wearers including traditional professionals and sub-culture tribes. The frames feature high-quality materials and the sunglass styles are fitted with the highest quality UV protective sun lenses by CARL ZEISS
