DARING CREATIVITY

Safilo introduces the first Fendi Men’s Eyewear Collection, which boasts designs perfectly in line with the elegant, contemporary style of the Fendi Men brand.

Founded by Adele and Edoardo Fendi in Rome in 1925, the Fendi fashion house is known for its intricate craftsmanship and timeless style, made famous by creative design greats including Karl Lagerfeld and Silvia Venturini Fendi.

The new Fendi Men’s Eyewear Collection for Spring/Summer 2017 offers seven optical and 10 sunglass models ranging from modern square shapes to retro-inspired rounds. Signature Fendi elements include the iconic triangle detail and colorful outlining.

Marchon Introduces Columbia PFG Styles

Columbia Eyewear from Marchon introduces the new high-performance PFG polarized eyewear collection, a line that is composed of four sunwear models (Big Katuna, Baitcaster, Arbor Peak, and Airgill Lite) with four polarized lens options.

The Columbia Performance Fishing Gear (PFG) line was launched in 1996 by outdoor clothing industry leader Columbia Sportswear, and has since served as a way of life for fishing enthusiasts seeking innovative apparel and accessories.
