República Eyewear - Retro frames with a modern twist
dluks | Apr 12, 2010 | Comments 0
República Eyewear was founded by Rafael Jimenez in 1997. The brand is primarily targeted towards the younger audience, but also offers a variety of classical styles for other age groups.
In 2010 República launched a special collection adapted to the Scandinavian market. The correctional frames are large in size and produced mainly in acetate / plastic, which corresponds perfectly with the Scandinavian fashion trends in 2010 / 2011.
The new collection is retro-inspired and combines bold designs with classic shapes. The color palette is comprised of harmonious colors like havana, brown, olive green and black. Furthermore the collection avoids the use of large logos, and has chosen to equip the frames with a discreet hinge, both as recognition value, but also to enhance the quality of the frames.
República Eyewear has its own philosophy: “República Eyewear converts new trends directly from the street to a modern and stylish collection … The collection fulfills a void in the eyewear fashion industry.”
República Eyewear is a high quality product, offering a “return rate” of less than 1%. In addition to this, 95% of all orders are delivered within 10 days… República is therefore able to meet demands within reasonable time.
Despite the high quality and modern appearance, República frames are considerably cheaper than other competitive brands in the market.
The well-established American Eyewear company, Kenmark Optical Group, obtained the distribution and production rights for República Eyewear in 2004. The company has several years of experience in the production of frames and sunglasses, with brands like Vera Wang, Kensie, Cynthia Rowley, Hush Puppies and Timex (among others).
República remains one of the most popular underground brands among movie stars and musicians in the U.S.. With stars like Justin Timberlake, Leonardo di Caprio, Ludacris and many others, República remains a favorite among the popular trendsetters.
