French luxury footwear and accessories brand Christian Louboutin is to enter the eyewear market after signing an exclusive global licensing deal with eyewear manufacturer Marcolin.

In a statement, Christian Louboutin said it has signed a licensing agreement with Marcolin until 2029 for the design, manufacturing and distribution of the brand’s sunglasses and optical frames.

The debut Christian Louboutin eyewear collections will be distributed starting spring/summer 2025 through a network of selected stores worldwide.

Alexis Mourot, chief executive of Christian Louboutin, said: “Christian Louboutin is progressively rolling out a strategy to become a complete lifestyle luxury accessories player and the eyewear and sunglasses categories are a natural extension for us.

“Marcolin is the ideal partner for this strategic partnership as they share the same vision for creating objects of desires of an outstanding quality and instantly recognisable creativity.”
