This picture has sat in our drafts since last summer, because I couldn’t quite decide what to do with it. Maison Martin Margiela sunglass collection was a very ‘hot’ item all last summer and was sold through luxury stores and boutiques. I had never heard of this line, but apparently they work with Marcolin for exclusive products for the Maison Martin Margiela Collection. (Their website is weird too). I’m sharing this with you just in case one of your patients asked for the product or comes in with this Paris Hilton outfit on-(LOL) at least you will know where they got the sunglasses from.
Here is my opinion: These sunglasses retail for about $400, you cannot RX them, they are strictly a fashion accessory, and people were plopping down $400 for a pair of sunglasses and they were selling out! My point being- NEVER, NEVER prejudge your patients or customers. You never know what they are going to buy and want. Would I wear these? Probably because I love different glasses- I wouldn’t pay $400 because I’m in the industry and would expect a huge discount. Sunglass Fanatics are not all celebrities (who get for free in swag bags!) I know of quite a few people who collect sunglasses (Shirley being one) That said- luxury is still selling, never prejudge and always assume the customer wants more than one pair of anything!
Paris Hilton wearing L’Incognito Maison Martin Margiela Sunglass ($390) The outfit is quite stunning as well (LOL) – maybe I’m just jealous, because I wish I had the body to wear an outfit just like hers.
