Zenni Expands Partnership with Iconic Designer Cynthia Rowley with Ready-to-Wear Eyewear Fashion Collaboration

First Permanent Collection Now Available Exclusively on Zenni.com

NOVATO, Calif.--()--Zenni, the online eyewear industry leader, today announced the launch of a new fashion collection with lauded designer Cynthia Rowley, “Zenni x Cynthia Rowley,” which includes fresh styles of Blokz™ blue light-blocking glasses and ready-to-wear sunglasses. Following a limited-edition holiday collaboration debut last winter, this first permanent collection features sleek studded designs, pumped-up pastels, glossy tortoiseshell and more, all available exclusively online at Zenni.com.

The 12 new “Zenni x Cynthia Rowley” frames are inspired by the brand’s mission to empower its wearers with signature style and function. The exclusive eyewear collection previewed in Rowley’s last New York Fashion Week runway show, is available with prescription and non-prescription lenses and features pink, orange, translucent, rose and glossy tortoiseshell frames in round, rectangle, cat-eye, and square styles for total versatility. Each style includes a complementary eyeglass case and lens cloth with a floral print plucked from Cynthia’s apparel designs.

“Every one of our customers has a unique look and sense of style which drives our passion to introduce fresh eyewear looks through collaborations with like-minded brands,” said Bai Gan, Zenni Chief Product Officer. “Expanding our partnership with Cynthia Rowley was an easy decision given our alignment in mission and the opportunity for the ‘Zenni x Cynthia Rowley’ collection to help people grow their collection of fashion frames while at home and at an affordable price point.”

The “Zenni x Cynthia Rowley” collection starts at just $35.95 and builds on Zenni’s wide array of 2,500 plus styles at Zenni.com that start at just $6.95 with an average price point of just over $40. The new collection also delivers on people’s growing desire to protect their eyes from harmful blue light as the entire collection is available with Blokz™ lenses, making blue-light blocking technology accessible for everyone.

“We did it again! We couldn’t be more excited about our second collection with Zenni. We love these frames as suns or with Blokz™ blue light blocking lenses for all the time we spend in front of screens,” said designer Cynthia Rowley.

Customers can shop the new collection by using Zenni’s 3D Virtual Try-On feature, which gives online shoppers a true-to-life preview of the glasses on their face, using a quick facial analysis tool. The ongoing collaboration with Cynthia Rowley is one of Zenni’s many fashion-focused partnerships.
