Brands are an integral part of our lives. Some brands evoke pride, most evoke loyalty. And when the brand is that of a car, it evokes passion, loyalty, obsession and a desire to possess more and more of the same brand.
Seems like owning just the car of a particular brand was not good enough. People want the car name to be displayed on their faces! No kidding! If one were to go by the influx of car brands into eyewear, it’s completely true. And frankly why not? With the branding that the car brands already command, extending the brand’s values into an eyewear seems like the logical next step.
And consumers seem to be loving it. Feeling the material that’s used on the steering wheel again on the temple of the eyewear has a certain brand connect that’s not possible with other brands. Using similar materials and of course having the brand name and the logo right out there is something that’s proving a little hard to resist for the consumers.
Here’s a few of the car brands that have made their mark in the eyewear segment.
