The first collections created under the new partnership is scheduled for release in September 2020. Marchon Eyewear will create men’s and women’s Lanvin eyewear collections, with a capsule collection of four styles to be previewed in March 2020.

“I am delighted to announce this new partnership. I am convinced that the combination of Bruno Sialelli’s creativity with Marchon’s strong expertise and global vision will assure great success to Lanvin eyewear,” said Jean-Philippe Hecquet, CEO of Lanvin, in a statement.

Lanvin’s creative director Bruno Sialelli first collaborated with Marchon Eyewear ahead of Lanvin’s recent Spring 2020 runway show during Paris Fashion Week. Marchon Eyewear created sunglasses to accompany the collection. These styles will be available exclusively through Lanvin flagship stores.

“We are very proud to collaborate with Lanvin and contribute to the brand’s future global growth. Lanvin’s prestigious legacy and modern vision have already begun to inspire our teams,” said Nicola Zotta, president and CEO of Marchon Eyewear, Inc.
