New York—At this week’s Vision Expo, Modo Eyewear added some new lines and licenses to its ever-expanding roster of brands: 7 for all Mankind, Jason Wu and ECO (Earth Conscious Optics).
The New York-based optical and sunwear manufacturer already has licenses for Derek Lam, 3.1 Phillip Lim, Fabien Baron, Baby Phat, Tretorn, and more. ECO (Earth Conscious Optics) is made from 95-percent recycled materials, whether extra material from the plastic frame manufacturing process or stainless steel from other electronics. In addition, for each ECO frame sold, Modo will plant a tree (currently in Cameroon, Africa). The collection features optical frames and sunglasses. Sunwear retails for $140.
7 for all Mankind, the premium denim line, hits the scene with matte and shiny plastics (our favorite: a matte mosaic-like resin that resembles camouflage) as well as aviators with inserts in red, taupe or yellow. Wholesales, $55 and $60.
Jason Wu added optical to his sunwear line, which features oversized cat-eyes with metal rims at the top. Wholesales are $110.
