Introducing: Marshall Eyewear
POSTED 6.07.15 IN NEWS
In collaboration with Swedish Eyewear Group (S.W.E.), Marshall Amplification is proud to announce the launch of Marshall Eyewear, continuing our commitment to diverse and exciting products, and furthering our influence on culture and style for musicians and music fans alike.
Managing Director, Jonathan Ellery, comments:
“At Marshall we live for music and musicians. We always have and always will. Take Hendrix and Slash, they are certainly icons of the music world. But also they are style icons. Their attitude and look embodies rock and roll and is recognised by, and continues to influence, generations. Marshall is synonymous with rock and roll, and with over 50 years of heritage in music it continues to symbolise music culture not just for guitarists, but also for music fans. Therefore adding eyewear to the Marshall product family is a perfectly natural progression. Marshall amplifiers have inspired creativity and helped express individualism for many musicians, and eyewear is the perfect way for music lovers to express their personality and individuality.
We are extremely excited to be working with Swedish Eyewear on this project; they are an excellent collaborative partner who have great expertise, craftsmanship and style, which are qualities inherent to our brand values.”
Lina Aastrup, Design Director of S.W.E. affirmed:
“Marshall has been a worldwide pioneer in music amplification since its creation, and still now the company is synonymous with some of the most celebrated of the last four decades. This is another reason why we are enthusiastic about starting this new and exciting venture. We will make available our know-how in order to guarantee a product consistent with the unmistakable Marshall brand values and its DNA, through contemporary design, materials and colours.”
Inspired by some of the musical style icons throughout history, the collection contains both optical and sunglasses options, in a variety of styles and finishes – all with the spirit and DNA of Marshall flowing through them.
