NEW YORK, NY, AUGUST 3, 2020 – Today, Altair Eyewear, Inc., a division of Marchon Eyewear, Inc. and a subsidiary of VSP Global, announces a new proprietary brand to their portfolio, Lenton & Rusby. As the lowest priced frame offering in the company’s portfolio of brands, Lenton & Rusby was built to support independent practices by offering a curated collection of on-trend eyewear featuring the perfect frames for every person in the family—crafted with quality, functionality and value in mind.

A dual gender assortment of 13 styles, the Lenton & Rusby collection incorporates best-selling design attributes and on-trend detailing, designed in a mix of metals and acetates, with inclusive sizings and affordable price points, “Say Hello to your new BFFs (budget friendly frames).” This new series of women’s and men’s styles are targeted to ages 18 – 55 but are certain to be appreciated by a wide-range of consumers.

"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.” said Thomas Burkhardt, Senior Vice President of Global Brands, Marketing & Design. “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.”
