Aalen, Germany | 24. March 2022 | ZEISS Vision Care
ZEISS Vision Care and Marchon present the optical and sunglass models of the new Spring/Summer 2022 collection. The high-quality standards of both partners are realized in timeless sunglass and optical frame models that are by definition light and comfortable to wear.
"Our joint collection is divided into three lines, which differ in their features and design," explains Reinhardt Hattingh, responsible for the partnership with Marchon at ZEISS. "The heart of the collection is the ZEISS ESSENTIALS line, inspired by one of the core elements of our brand that is reduction: 'Less is more'," Hattingh adds. These frames are easy to wear, comfortable, and modern. The second line of the frame collection is ZEISS PIONEER, which represents the pursuit of innovation. Characteristic for this part of the collection are the clean lines of the frames, underlined by the transparency of the materials. The collection is completed with the ZEISS BEYOND line, resulting in precise details and technical features of the frames, thus representing the high value of research and development.
"Overall, the joint collection features high-quality materials such as the use of titanium, beta-titanium, and HD acetate, as well as premium features such as nose pads made of medical-grade and eco-friendly material," Hattingh concludes.
ZEISS sunglass styles reflect the optical collection and carry the design features of the three different collection lines. The frames are also made of high-quality materials and are lightweight. ZEISS Plano sunglass lenses with ZEISS engraving are incorporated into every pair of sunglasses. All sunglass styles are Rx-able with a wide range of popular ZEISS tints and gradients. The collection also includes polarized lenses in selected models.
ZEISS sunglasses and optical models will be available worldwide at select specialty stores and premium sun and optical retailers. Marchon Eyewear, with its extensive global distribution network, will handle the sales and marketing of the collection.
