His subtle elegance and sophisticated, out-of-the-ordinary materials fit perfectly with Modo’s product philosophy. We are looking forward to positioning Derek Lam Eyewear as an exclusive alternative to the conventional designer brands.”
Derek Lam said, “I am so pleased that we have found a partner who understands luxury the way we do; beautifully crafted, unique and modern. The minute we saw their capacity to create such a special, hand-finished product, I knew I could make a statement in eyewear.”
