Aspinal of London to launch eyewear collection during LFW
Aspinal of London is expanding its lifestyle credentials with a new eyewear line that is debuting during London Fashion Week in February.
The result of a licensing partnership with eyewear company Eyespace, whose clients also include Land Rover, the eyewear collection will introduce 14 exclusive pieces for men and women.
Made of hand-polished acetate, a synthetic fibre that has a deep gloss and high transparency, the sunglasses will feature elements from the Aspinal of London brand, such as its shield logo, on the inner temple trim, hinge or as cutwork on the tips.
Aspinal’s design team, headed by creative director Mariya Dykalo, worked closely with Eyespace on the collection, which further expands a universe of products that also includes leather bags, small leather accessories, journals, smartphone cases, scented candles and luxury board game sets.
“Working to the highest standards of quality and care throughout the entire design process, this exclusive new collection highlights the integrity and quality craftsmanship that sits at the heart of Aspinal of London,” commented Jayne Abel, managing director of Eyespace.
“As we continue to strengthen our distribution worldwide, and with the rapid growth in the number of Aspinal of London stores opening globally, sunglasses are the perfect brand extension to allow Aspinal of London to enhance their portfolio and perfectly complement the luxurious leather accessories that are adored by their fanbase around the world.”
The eyewear collection will be previewed at 100% Optical, the UK’s largest optical trade event, in January ahead of its debut to the public in February. A luxury eyewear collection will follow later in Spring/Summer 2019.
