Marc by Marc Jacobs (MMJ) prides itself on its amalgamation of a practical, urban style with irony and colored details to create elegant, classy eyewear designs. In light of serving its main demographic of 18 to 35 year olds, this collection of eyewear was designed specifically to satisfy the needs, wants, and desires of that target audience, which are high quality, unique products at affordable prices. To that end, this collection is marked for its vintage-inspired models that incorporate twists and innovations to make for new, cutting-edge eyewear.

            The Marc by Marc Jacobs Sunglasses MMJ 436/S is a men’s sunglasses model in this collection. It features the Square style, which works wonders with the contours and curves that define round and oval shaped faces. The frames are made of Monel, an alloy that is comprised of copper and nickel. These two together give the sunglasses strength, great adjustability, and good resistance to corrosion. Additionally, the frames will be able to maintain their shape and stability over time and wear. This model also features Nylon temples. The Nylon is blended for a multitude of reasons. For starters, it helps offset its initial brittleness. Also, the blends help make the Nylon lightweight, give it stability and hypoallergenic properties, and make it resistant to breakage, which adds to its durability factor. Other physical features include the metal grid on the front, which matches the colored temples. The MMJ logo can be seen adorning the temples. These sunglasses may come in the colors of Ruthenium with Gray, Ruthenium with Black, and Shiny Black with Matte Black. The color palette is complemented with flash lenses to give off a unique look. Prescription lenses may be added if needed. This model is a good fit for those men who desire sunglasses that give off a cool, trendy look.

            The MMJ 435/S is a women’s sunglasses model. This model features the Cat-Eye style, which goes together very well with those people who have triangular or diamond shaped faces. This model is the female counterpart to the male-oriented MMJ 436/S and thus possesses all of the same physical features save for the Cat-Eye frame style. This includes the refined, spectacular metal front that matches with the colored temples and the mirrored (flash) lenses that provide that signature stylish look. The mirrored or flash lenses are an excellent choice for those people who are sensitive to light because these lenses reflect light away from the eyes even more effectively than do the regular tinted lenses. It’s this quality that also makes the mirrored lenses very useful in those situations that obligate reduction in the overall brilliance of light, such as when seeing sunlight on snow, water, or ice. One should be aware that these lenses require additional coatings for greater long-term durability a la resistance to abrasion. The available color choices have been inspired by the season fashion show. These colors are Matte Red, Matte Black, Mud, and Smart Gold. Prescription lenses are optional.

            Marc by Marc Jacobs Sunglasses MMJ 610The MMJ 610 is a unisex eyeglasses model. It features the Oval style, which is a great fit for those with square, heart, or diamond shaped faces. The frame material is acetate, which has great hypoallergenic properties since it’s derived from natural cottonseed fibers, is lightweight, provides great comfortability, and can retain its luster over time and wear. But perhaps the greatest advantage that acetate has is its versatility in its color choices, textures, and patterns. This model is defined by its simplistic and clean design, which is bolstered by refined, retro-inspired details such as the unique cut on its profiles and metal rivets on the front, as well as its keyhole bridge. The color palette for this model concentrates on stylish color contrasts between solid and transparent hues, such as Havana and Crystal, Black and Crystal, Black and Green, and Black and Blue. Prescription lenses can be added. This is a must have for anyone who wants a pair of optical frames that look stylish, cool, and trendy.
