As we all know every celebrity is slapping their name on eyewear and why???… because this is how they make money and how eyewear distributors can make money using the strategic planning and resources of the Brand. There are many ways that ‘Brands’ have gotten involved in eyewear, just a straight licensing deal, doing a capsule collection or a collaboration. See Rihanna for Dior and Puma Fenty.  Some have used a Brand for Give Back program and other are using hashtags.

Some Eyewear Brands are being built on runways: Gentle Monster, ic! Berlin, Mercura NYC, Linda Farrow, Moscot, mykita, Silhouette, Victoria Beckham.
