Julien Macdonald launches eyewear collection with Vision Express

Optical retailer Vision Express has teamed up with Julien Macdonald to launch the fashion designer’s first eyewear collection.

Julien Macdonald launches eyewear collection with Vision Express

The women-only glasses collection, which is exclusive to Vision Express, includes both metal and acetate frames in full and half rim designs.

Paying homage to Macdonald’s catwalk creations, the hand-crafted collection features mirror and crystal motifs alongside metallic prints and Art Deco design. 

Macdonald collaborated with eyewear manufacturer OA Eyewear in a development process which took almost one year. Eyewear design experts interpreted his original sketches into a finished product, with consultation and input from Macdonald at each stage of the manufacture.  

Macdonald explained: “As I expand into eyewear, it was important that the collection accurately embraced the design and detailing that people know and love about the Julien Macdonald fashion house.”     

Cheryl Perkins, senior head of product at Vision Express, said: “It’s fantastic to be able to offer the Julien Macdonald collection exclusively at Vision Express.  The range delivers the fashion flair Julien is famous for, with durable and high-quality frames that will appeal to our stylish female customers. It will be a valuable addition to the extensive range of our exclusive brands.”  

The Julien Macdonald eyewear will launch at Vision Express stores nationwide from 3 December, priced from £169 to £189.
