Nothing signifies the arrival of spring like blooming flowers and the buzz of nature. Paired with the buzz of the city, New York City’s Central Park features both, inspiring the new City Garden collection from Robert Marc Eyewear.
The Spring/Summer 2013 collection takes cues from “the vast and sophisticated swathe of nature, in the heart of a busy metropolis, framed by soaring limestone buildings. The result is an unexpected synergy of concrete and nature, with a muted color palate randomly charged with brilliant shocks of color.”
“Central Park is one of the most exceptional urban gardens in the world,” says Robert Marc, “and what’s
astonishing is that while this magnificent expanse appears natural, it wasin fact entirely designed and
landscaped with a clear, creative vision.”
Using a blend of organic and man-made materials, the designer glasses collection mirrors what is contained within the great park, also using textured color layers as an interpretation of the colors in the city garden. The women’s collection is described as urbane yet romantic, with the vitality of spring in bloom, and will be available in Midnight, Turtle Pond, Honeycomb, Poppy, Blue Iris and Turquoise Pine shades.
The men’s collection is an interpretation of the juxtaposition between the park and its city surroundings, according to the designer, modeling the frames after architectural inspirations. Men’s colors include Matte Black, Tortoise (Matte and Shine), Smoketree, Vintage Tortoise (Matte and Shine), Matte Ashwood, Matte Mottled Tortoise, Gray Tortoise, Ash, Vintage Crystal and Clear Gray.
