ZEISS Italy Joins Fashion Collaboration for the Good Cause

AM Eyewear, photographer Pierre Toussaint and ZEISS collaborate on a collection of sunglasses and thus supporting Optometry Giving Sight.


Castiglione Olona, Italy, 22/08/14
When fashion, design and precision join forces, the outcome is bound to be special. Together with the Australian frame maker AM Eyewear and fashion photographer Pierre Toussaint Carl Zeiss Sunlens Italy collaborates on a collection of high-fashion sunglasses.

When Pierre Toussaint first had the idea to create a range of sunglasses to raise money for eye research, having worked with the brand previously, he immediately thought of Australian AM Eyewear as the ideal partner to aide in the design and manufacture of the collection. Together with ZEISS the SAINT / AM EYEWEAR collaboration was born.

Three limited edition, unique and feminine shapes named after the idyllic locations of St Bart, St Tropez and St Lucia have been created and are each available in multiple color ways. With the backing of numerous high-profile celebrities and models, a contribution of all lenses for this collaboration from ZEISS Vision Care Italy, and a further 10% of all sales being donated to Optometry Giving Sight, the SAINT / AM EYEWEAR collaboration hopes to provide much needed support to the millions of people around the world who are needlessly blind or vision impaired – simply because they can’t access an eye exam and corrective eyewear.
