J Crew Sunglasses

Featuring high-quality acetate frames and scratch-resistant frames, J Crew's first sunglasses collection is a considered reimagining of five popular styles

This February, the US retailer J Crew will launch its first collection of sunglasses.

Each pair has been made from high-quality acetate, with scratch-resistant and UV-protected lenses from the New York eyewear manufacturer Marchon.

The collection offers five styles, which are all new takes on classic frame. Jack is aviator-inspired, while Irving, is a modern variation on the wayfarer.

J Crew, a multi-brand American retailer, and Marchon, a US-based eyewear manufacturer and distributor, were coincidentally founded in the same year in 1983 in New York.
