Marcolin partners with GCDS

A five-year deal with the fashion brand will see the eyewear company create a range of spectacles and sunglasses

Marcolin has entered a five-year partnership with fashion brand GCDS to design, produce and distribute a collection of spectacles and sunglasses.

The eyewear company explained that the GCDS eyewear range will be defined by “irony, experimentation and street style.”

CEO of Marcolin, Massimo Renon, said: “We are proud to have entered into this agreement with GCDS, a young and versatile brand, a benchmark in the luxury street style field.”

The range will launch in April 2020 on the GCDS website and its stores, as well as on select e-commerce platforms with worldwide distribution for the optical sector taking place in the second half of 2020.
