Last year, Balenciaga announced that its parent company Kering was taking its eyewear line in-house after it had previously been licensed out to Marcolin, which also produces glasses for TOM FORD, Diesel, and Moncler. The first in-house collection has now launched exclusively at Dover Street Market beginning January.
The new eyewear, designed, marketed, and distributed by Kering Eyewear, comes in a number of colors, including fluorescent purple, sunburst, and gray. The lenses extend past the temple and behind the ears, with thick frame lines along the top and bottom of the eyewear.
Balenciaga branding can be found on the temple and the insides of the glasses. Check out the images above to get a better look at what is coming soon. The eyewear launches at Dover Street Market Los Angeles, Tokyo, New York, London, Singapore, and Beijing between January 2 and 9.
