Marchon will continue to be the licensee of Karl Lagerfeld's eyewear.

June 30 2022

Marchon and KARL LAGERFELD first engaged as licensing partners in 2013, and this long-term renewal reaffirms the strong alliance between the two companies. Over the years, KARL LAGERFELD eyewear has grown as part of its parent brand’s continued success, and it’s been increasingly involved in partnerships and special projects that perfectly capture the brand’s DNA.

“We are very proud to continue our longstanding and successful partnership with KARL LAGERFELD,” said Thomas Burkhardt, Senior Vice President of Global Brands, Marketing & Design at Marchon Eyewear, Inc. “KARL LAGERFELD is a key brand in our global Fashion portfolio, and we are looking forward to partnering with the team, to create the same fashionable and bold eyewear styles that customers expect to see.”

“Karl made eye fashion a key statement of his iconic look,” said Pier Paolo Righi, CEO and President at Karl Lagerfeld. “Marchon has for many years been helping us to translate his very own iconic attributes into very distinct eyewear. We’re very excited extending this great partnership and taking it into the future.”

KARL LAGERFELD eyewear is sold worldwide in select optical retailers, department, and specialty stores, and online at www.karl.com and Zalando.
