Etro + Marchon Eyewear

Sophisticated shapes, bold colors and the Italian fashion brand's signature paisley

Whether it’s the low-set winter sun or the tropical brightness of a holiday escape, there’s a need for sunglasses in all seasons. The latest collection designed by Italian heritage brand Etro, and constructed by the eyewear experts at Marchon, defies the common silhouettes and colors to which we’ve grown accustomed. From vibrant reds and yellows to variation upon variation of Etro’s signature paisley stylings, these are elegant statement pieces. The frames are all 100% acetate and details—from metal temples engraved with the paisley pattern to khaki gradient lenses (with UVA and UVB protection)—demonstrate a commitment to quality. Of course there are more standard offerings here‚ including an aviator range, but it’s when Etro goes wild with their collective imagination that something truly distinct emerges.

As with all Etro products, the eyewear is made entirely in Italy. In addition to sunglasses, the range also features an array of ophthalmic eyeglasses. There are a lot of eyewear brands out there, but when a groundbreaking fashion house lends their visual language to an accessory, it does more than create sunglasses that pair well with an Etro outfit; it pushes the accessories world to the next level.

Explore the Etro eyewear women‘s and men‘s collections online, with prices starting at $260. While the Etro website differentiates between genders, we find most designs work for all genders.
