NOVATO, Calif.--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Top online eyewear brand Zenni Optical and acclaimed fashion designer Timo Weiland today unveiled a curated collection of fun and fresh eyewear called Timo’s Picks as part of the Council of Fashion Designers of America (CFDA) Retail Lab in New York City. Hand-selected by Timo, the collection features 36 styles of Zenni glasses and sunglasses in classic and modern shapes and colors to complement the Timo Weiland women’s and menswear pieces included in the CFDA Retail Lab.
Today through October 2016, the custom-selected variety of Zenni frames will be featured and available for purchase in-store at the Retail Lab located within the Cadillac House in New York City, and online at www.zennioptical.com/timos-picks. A leader for more than a decade in online prescription eyewear, today marks the first time Zenni glasses will be sold in a retail setting.
“Retail Lab is our brand’s moment to make a statement on what we believe the shopping experience should look and feel like in 2016 and beyond,” said Timo Weiland, co-founder and creative director of Timo Weiland. “We chose Zenni as an exclusive partner because all of us wear and need eyeglasses, and we love that it’s a brand that delivers a ton of premium options in styles and colors that we can switch up based on our mood. Zenni allows people to play around and have fun with their look.”
The Zenni eyewear chosen in Timo's Picks embodies a classic design sensibility with modern twists for both men and women. Eyewear enthusiasts can dial up their look by pairing cat-eye or round styles with Timo's big, bold stripes and patterns. Or, they can set a sleek tone with the clean lines of nomad-style and aviator frames, paired with the fashion label's dresses and pants in bursts of blues and yellows. Zenni offers eyewear that pairs perfectly with every Timo look.
“Zenni and Timo share a desire to have fun with fashion and believe style should be affordable to everyone,” said Mark Brutten, director, brand marketing at Zenni Optical. “And with 36 curated styles, Timo’s Picks include a variety of distinctive eyewear options for every occasion and personality.”
The Zenni frames included in Timo’s Picks will start at $25.95 and can be customized with tints, prescription single-vision, bifocal or progressive lenses, and other options including engraving.
