The American brand describes itself as slightly bohemian and a little bit off-colour. Channelling the independent spirit, the Marc Jacobs sunglasses designs are current and risk taking, aimed at the fashion leaders, not the followers.
About The Company
Marc Jacobs started up his self-titled label in 1986. Following on from his success, he decided to release his secondary fashion line, 'Marc by Marc Jacobs' in 2001. The MMJ label is more funky, playful and urban compared to the Marc Jacobs label. This half of the line is more grown-up, sophisticated, and sensual. The designs in the MJ label are very glamorous and luxurious which appeals to an older audience.
Marc won Menswear, Womenswear, and Accessories Designer of the Year awards in 2001. Since then, the successful designer has won many more awards for his brilliant designs and flair with fashion garments.
Marc Jacobs Sunglasses
MJ sunglasses are sophisticated, glamorous and classic. Despite its classy looks, the sunglasses collection is relatively modern; think 21st Century glamour as opposed to full-on 1920's glamour appeal. A few of the cat-eye sunglass styles in the collection does embody the looks of Grace Kelly, Marilyn Monroe, and Aurdrey Hepburn. Celebrities who are currently in love with this luxurious brand includes Victoria Beckham, Christina Aguilera and Paris Hilton. Even Brad Pitt is a fan of the brand.
When picking your designer sunglasses, you may come across a drop-box selection for which frame size you want. The frame size measurements are listed as two sets of digits; the first set represents the sunglass lens size and the second set of digits represents the measurement across the bridge of the nose. If you have a very low nose bridge or your nose is very small, you will need to select a frame size with less than 15 (mm), for example 53-15. All frame size measurements are indicated in millimetres (mm).
