Marchon and Marcolin are two of the largest manufacturers in Italy. If you add Safilo to this group, and then Luxottica [link], we’re talking about the big four that command 90% of the mass-market eyewear industry and own every single fashion brand licence known to man. It’s all becoming the same, basically, all blurring into one. I’m finding that my customers are becoming aware that fashion-brand eyewear, in particular, is all licensed, tired of design and not very well made. It’s regrettable, but I don’t, on principle, deal in fashion-brand eyewear licensed to the big four. I prefer to deal in things of beauty, objects that boast their quality not in their association with some other garment or accessory in fashion but in their originality, craftsmanship and artisanship. I am always captivated by the beautiful, disappointed by the second-rate, reflected glory of mere licensed product.
