Selling Point: Thomas Burkhardt, senior vice president of global brands, marketing and design, said, “Lenton & Rusby is modern, contemporary, clean, and simple. It’s a brand for women and men that are looking for classic frames at an affordable price. We are excited to add Lenton & Rusby to our portfolio of proprietary lifestyle brands, as we are confident this is what our customers are looking for.” The collection is available beginning this month.
