Marshall’s story began in a small drum shop in 1960s London, when Jim Marshall realised that the new breed of rock ’n’ roll guitarists needed a new sound. The first Marshall amplifier, affectionately named “number one”, was created in 1962. The rest, as they say, is history.
Drawing on a ubiquitous stage presence that has enraptured music fans around the world ever since, Marshall Eyewear fuses classic shapes with rock ‘n’ roll attitude. The frames are named after your favourite rock stars, in a collection designed to amplify your style whether you are on stage, off stage or backstage.
The Spring/Summer 2017 collection, inspired by the punk movement and the darker side of rock ‘n’ roll, combines matte metal details with eye-catching acetates. The muted palette lends the collection a strong, underground edge that resonates with the soul of Marshall’s iconic past.
To translate the high quality that has always been synonymous with Marshall Amplification, the handmade state of the art eyewear features Carl Zeiss Vision lenses, hypoallergenic titanium nose pads and stainless steel rims.
