Modo’s CEO, Alessandro Lanaro, said, “We are extremely proud and excited about this collaboration. Derek is one of the most talented designers of our time. 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.”
Derek Lam, a native of San Francisco, began his fashion career in 1990 after graduating from Parsons School of Design. After 12 years spent at the highest levels of American fashion as a designer at Michael Kors, Lam launched his eponymous label in 2003.
