Derek Lam’s growing design empire is now expanding into accessories such as his new women’s eyewear collection manufactured by Modo.
Hand-crafted in Japan and
inspired by the American sportswear of the 40s and 50s, the collection is
composed of 5 acetate and 4 block titanium styles. All of the styles are extremely
feminine and feature sophisticated details.
Rounded temples recall the look and feel of vintage frames. Available colors also reflect the sensual, feminine feel of Lam’s Ready to Wear line.
"I am so
pleased to work with a partner who understands luxury the way we do;
beautifully crafted, unique and modern. The minute we saw Modo’s capacity to
create such a special, hand-finished product, I knew I could make a statement
in eyewear," commented Derek Lam.
Modo’s CEO, Alessandro Lanaro,
commented: "Derek is one of the most talented designers of our time. His
subtle elegance and sophisticated, out of the ordinary materials fit
perfectly with Modo’s product philosophy. We are looking forward to
positioning the Derek Lam Eyewear Collection as an exclusive alternative to
the conventional designer brands."
