Get a sneak peak behind the scenes of our Marshall Eyewear shoot last summer. We had an amazing day in sunny Stockholm with dreamteam photographer Andreas Kock and wonderful models from Mikas together with hair and make-up artist Åsa Östergren. Many thanks to everyone involved!
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.
“Music brand Marshall is set to branch out into fashion with the launch of its debut eyewear collection. The 60-piece line will offer styles such as the wayfarer, aviator, club-master and panto, featuring frames handmade out of acetates and metals with trims of leather. The collection launches on July 12 at Harvey Nichols in Knightsbridge, London, available in sunglass and optical frame options.”
Marshall loves everything about music. The scene. The people. The lifestyle. They live for it.
Having played a pivotal role in rock music’s sonic evolution over the past five decades, the Marshall sound has become the ‘sound of rock’, with the Marshall script logo and the ‘stack’ or half ‘stack’ being immediately recognizable the world over. To become such a global icon takes dedication, innovation and passion; a passion for making genre defining amps; a passion for music.
True to the DNA of the iconic Marshall amps, the frames are all lovingly hand-made, with elements of design reflecting an array of identification with their products, past and present.
The collection; hand-crafted out of acetates and metals, with trims of leather accessorizing, combines the classic heritage styles of the past with the contemporary silhouettes of the present. The aviator, club-master, panto and wayfarer all get the Marshall once-over, with a range of chunky acetate flat tops embracing the new guard who are now defining the Rock Star Vision.
Marshall icons are all present in the spirit of the 60 piece range, represented through rock luminaries such as JIMI, JOEY, MICK, JACK, NEIL, NICO, LOU, KEITH, JOHNNY, BOB, BRYAN and not forgetting, AMY. All styles are available in both sunglass and optical frame options, demonstrating the broad ranging lifestyle appeal that Marshall endures. From the hedonistic festival fiend, to the thoughtful music aficionado, whether it night or day, work or play.
From the historical guitar enthusiast to the time worn roadie, the indie kids of today and the dj’s of the future, Marshall once again takes measures to amplify the lifestyle that we all really crave.
Now, we can all embrace, the Rock Star Vision.
