Vivienne Westwood is an iconic brand and individual, and the eyewear range will be respectful and aligned with their collections. The orb logo is a work of art, and I look forward to being able to interpret this with the teams into our product category”.

Mondottica [is] not only a brand that shares our core values, but by looking to our brand heritage and traditional design principles, and through [its] innovation in recycled materials, are part of our move to a more sustainable future.”
