NEW YORK and PARIS—Marchon Eyewear and Lanvin S.A., the luxury French fashion house founded in 1889 by Jeanne Lanvin, have entered into an exclusive, long-term global licensing agreement for sun and optical eyewear under the Lanvin brand name. The first men’s and women’s collections developed under this new partnership are scheduled to be released globally in September 2020, and a capsule collection of four sunglasses will preview in March 2020 before the official launch.
Marchon first began collaborating with Bruno Sialelli, Lanvin’s creative director, to develop and manufacture sunglasses for Lanvin’s Spring 2020 runway show held last week in Paris. That collection will be sold exclusively through Lanvin’s flagship stores.

Nicola Zotta, president and CEO of Marchon Eyewear, Inc. said, “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.
