Marie France Van Damme, the Hong Kong-based designer known for her globally influenced line of luxury resort, swim, and ready-to-wear has introduced the brand’s first eyewear collection and it is now available online. The glamorous sunglasses collection features two classic styles, inspired by the designer’s take on the oversized rectangular and classic aviator designs. The result is an authentic design with bespoke, handmade details that are distinctive and unique.
The line is available in a sophisticated range of neutrals and metallics, including solid black, Japanese tortoise, milky nude and white acetate accented with soft gold, rose gold and silver handcrafted metal finishes. Each pair features subtle branding details, along with elegant, hand-polished contours and exceptional quality lenses from partner Carl Zeiss Optical.
Created to seamlessly complement the Marie France Van Damme collection and resort lifestyle, the line will allow Marie France to continue the expansion of product offerings to appeal to her jet-set clientele. The eyewear collection will be the latest addition to the brand, which has rapidly expanded since its inception in 2011 to include an impressive range of ready-to-wear, resortwear, swimwear, jewelry, handbags, scarves, perfume, and candles. “We’re excited to introduce sunglasses to our collection.” said Marie France Van Damme. “The launch of eyewear will only help us to continue offering our clients a full range of versatile, seasonless staples with superior quality and craftsmanship.”
