New York-based luxury optical brand Morgenthal Frederics is thrilled to announce a new small-batch collaboration with cult-favorite Los Angeles brand Jacques Marie Mage on a limited edition sunglass frame, available starting today.
For the collaboration, Morgenthal Frederics turned Jacques Marie Mage’s signature Fellini frame on its head, interpreted in a matte, blackout front, highlighted by matte black hardware, with glossy blue marble temples.
“Jerome [Jacques Marie Mage] is really crushing it with his design work, and we were very excited to work with him on a piece that we felt was a fresh take on an already amazing style,” says Jeff Press, Morgenthal Frederics’ chief design officer.
Adds Marie Mage, “Our collaboration with Morgenthal Frederics is a testament of strong partnership and creativity coming together to create a unique eyewear proposition.”
The limited-edition Fellini frame s limited to 50 pieces total and is available in select Morgenthal Frederics stores beginning today.
