Marilyn Monroe, the glamorous 20th century icon known for her vulnerable on-screen persona and bold costumes, has inspired a new collection of eyewear by Brulimar.
This summer you can steal her style and channel your inner Hollywood glamour with the three collections in the Marilyn Monroe eyewear range, that brilliantly capture the style of the timeless beauty we all adore.
Think Marilyn in ‘How to Marry a Millionaire’, bold cat eyes and bright retro frames. There is something to suit everyone in these collections that combine old hollywood glamour with a sleek modern day twist.
The Optical Collection
The first collection in the Marilyn Monroe eyewear range is the Optical collection. Crystals and hand-made mosaic patterns on cat eye frames create the elegant look Marilyn was known for both on and off screen.
Marilyn Monroe MM0102: Channel your inner Hollywood glamour in theses classic beige MMO102 frames with a bold animal print. These flattering rectangular frames are also available in black and brown for a more subtle look.
Marilyn Monroe MM0156: This sleek metallic semi-rimless MMO156 pair create a sophisticated look with a little sparkle and shine along the temples. The simple frame makes these specs the perfect pair of everyday glasses.
Marilyn Monroe MMO141: Try something a little different and add a pop of colour with these feminine cat eye MMO141 frames. These navy to light blue coloured glasses are sure to make a statement and brighten up any look. They are also available in black, brown and purple.
The Silver Screen Collection
The second collection, The Silver Screen collection, has five designs of sunglasses for you to choose from. All created with a retro vibe in mind you can throw it back with a pair of avant-garde square frames or opt for a more modern, yet still bold, sweeping cat eye.
Marilyn Monroe MC5006: These oversized round sunnies ooze Hollywood glamour. The flattering round frames of MC5006 have metal detailing on the hinges, complete with Marilyn’s signature, a feature on all the glasses in the collection.
Marilyn Monroe MC5003: Try these soft cat eye MMS5003 frames with animal print detail if oversized sunglasses are not your thing. The leopard print on these sunnies add a little extra glam to the classic cat eye look and come in black, brown and burgundy.
Marilyn Monroe MC5005: These flattering rectangular frames are more modern than the other retro shaped sunglasses in this collection. The animal print is the statement feature in the MC5005, a nod from the designer to the playful side of Marilyn that we all know and love.
The third collection in this range, featuring a limited edition pair of sunglasses, was created to honour the lady behind the playful and vulnerable on-screen persona. Appropriately named The Marilyn, only 926 pairs will ever be created in honour of the birth year of the icon – 1926. All profits made from this collection with be donated to the orphanage where Marilyn grew up.
These statement sunglasses are a standout from the entire collection and a pair that will help you really make a statement these summer. Available in noir, silver screen and flame and dusted with 126 Swarovski crystals, all sunglasses in this collection have their item number engraved in gold inside and are packed in a gold box complete with a book of photographs of the beauty this collection is inspired by and dedicated to.
