A look from the new Maison Martin Margiela and Cutler and Gross collection

In other non-Fashion Week news, Paris-based Maison Martin Margiela announced yesterday it has signed an eyewear license with the famed London optical firm Cutler and Gross for a collection that will be unveiled later this month at the Silmo trade fair. 

The licensed collection, set to be handmade in Italy, will comprise of two groups: one will be called Anatomic and focus on large, enveloping shapes, while the other is named Wrong Size, with purposely ill-fitting lenses. Though all the details weren't released, the agreement was described as multi-year and covering sunglasses only.

Maison Martin Margiela broke into eyewear two years ago by introducing its popular Incognito style, which resembles a black censor bar. Prices have not been finalized for the latest collection, but they are expected to be in line with styles currently in stores, which range from about 350-450 euros, or $445 to $575 at current exchange rates. The line is slated to hit counters in November at Margiela boutiques and select Cutler and Gross stores, as well as make a peek a boo debut at the Maison Martin Margiela runway show in Paris on October 1.
