After watches and jewelry, Omega has just launched a new line of sunglasses. The design of these new pieces is clearly aligned with the iconic aesthetics of Omega timepieces with the identifiable constellation claws and the floral motifs. And, for those of you who have yet to notice, get a closer look: the flower is actually made up of five intertwined Omega logos. Nice touch, right?
The collection was been developed in partnership with Marcolin, an Italian group, who will also take care of the production of the pieces. This works as both a quality guarantee and saves on time for Omega as Marcolin already manufactures sunglasses for numerous eyewear brands such as Tom Ford, Montblanc and Ermenegildo Zegna.
The collection counts 14 frames, including a limited edition to celebrate the Rio Olympics. Each pair comes in an ornate zebra wood case, similar to the furniture and décor in Omega boutiques. This first collection will initially be on sale exclusively in Omega boutiques, with prices ranging from CHF 270.- to CHF 460.-.
