Marc by Marc Jacobs Sunglasses
from wwd...








Quote:
Marc Jacobs has set its sights on the entry-level sunglass business.

A year after launching high-end shades at prices ranging from $230 to $350, the American fashion house is introducing its first group of sunwear for the diffusion Marc by Marc Jacobs label.

The 24 styles will retail in Marc by Marc Jacobs boutiques, better department stores and specialty retailers beginning this November in the U.S.; international distribution is to follow within the year. The line will be priced from $80 to $120.

"We are a lot smarter about sunglasses now that we have launched our collection sunglasses," said Marc Jacobs president Robert Duffy. "We put a lot of the collection glasses in the Marc by Marc Jacobs stores, and they sold well, but not everybody can spend those prices on glasses. This gives something more tailored to that Marc by Marc Jacobs customer."

They are so cheap because they are marc by marc. He already has the collection sunglasses. As Robert Duffy said in the article, he wanted to make something more affordable for people who don't want to spend the $230+ on the collection ones. That said, i cant wait for them to come out. I am really excited about the price!

i second that....the marc by marc glasses look soo cheap..and i know that they said they were designing for a more secondary line....but the clothes in m by mj arent cheap...if you are going to spend $80 for a shirt, 250 for skirt and $500 for a jacket....i think that 200+ on sunglasses isnt going to shock you in the money dept...

but thats just me

I think they look OK, not ugly, not super-nice. The studs one are a little pretty..
