Kenneth Cole

Marcolin has launched a new eyewear collection for designer Kenneth Cole. Aptly named “Techni-Cole” for its innovative performance technology and fashion-forward appeal, the eyewear collection specifically aims to be synonymous with contemporary fashion, quality materials, and modern style.

Kenneth Cole’s 2021 Techni-Cole eyewear collection reflects the brand’s modern classic design and urban aesthetic. The collection offers sustainable, cutting-edge pieces for the fashion-forward, the travel-smart, and the tech-savvy.

At the core of the collection is Ultem, a high-strength, lightweight, and hypoallergenic material. Ultem is impact-resistant, heat-resistant, and UV stabilized, preventing sun fading and guarantees the frames hold up over time. Furthermore, the flexible nature of the material coupled with an integrated hinge system ensures comfort and optimal fit for a variety of face shapes. All designs come standard with polarized lenses and an anti-reflective lens coating.

Also new for the eyewear collection are sustainably produced styles made with bio-acetate, making the product very environmentally conscious. All Techni-Cole styles are delivered with a new case or pouch design, that includes a cleaning cloth produced with 100 percent post-consumer plastic.

The 2021 Techni-Cole collection consists of 12 optical and six sunglass styles produced for men and women. The eyewear will be available beginning March 2021 through select retailers and specialty optical shops nationwide.
