“Dutil Eyewear resonates with people that value craftsmanship, careful design and quality.”
What are you selling?
Dutil Eyewear has been a part of Durant Sessions repertoire for about a year and half. We felt it is truly the only Canadian premium fashion eyewear brand in the market.
Who’s buying it?
Dutil Eyewear resonates with people that value craftsmanship, careful design and quality. The brand is gender neutral which is timely because the people that support us simply do not want to be pigeonholed.
Why do they like it?
Durant Sessions customers really care about rich culture. Dutil Eyewear has done several collaborations with artists, musicians and chefs. We know that our consumer values amazing eyewear and cares deeply about the nuances which sometimes cannot be seen but definitely felt! Durant Sessions does not have POP or anything that would mention a brand; people are drawn to Dutil because of the shapes, quality and quirky colors.
