New York, NY, July 7, 2022: Limited edition handmade eyewear designer, Les Monts, announces the release of two new styles: Denali and Rainier, as well as an elegant new colorway: Moonstone, for best-selling model Zion. Founded by former Ted Baker eyewear designer Casey Klugman, Les Monts delicately marries traditional craftsmanship and bold innovation. The exclusive unisex styles will be released in late June 2022.
Les Monts – French for “the mountains”, pays homage to Klugman’s European heritage as well as his own journey as an artist. The exquisite, handcrafted frames are set to have wearers looking effortlessly chic whether walking the streets of New York or sailing the coasts of Capri. Each frame is manufactured in Northern Italy, where they collaborate with one of the region’s most revered manufacturers; a family-owned factory that has mastered the art of fine eyewear. The new styles will be in keeping with the company’s use of resplendent materials, high-gloss finishes, and exaggerated frame profiles.
Designed for the stargazers and risk-takers, their beloved frame – the Zion – is given new life in a fresh colorway: Moonstone. With its multifaceted silhouette and sharp spirit, the distinctive frame landed on the cover of Invision Magazine, in June 2022. The Zion’s masterful composition demonstrates Les Monts’ commitment to premier components with custom-laminated 10mm acetate, signature crescent hardware and world-class Italian CR39 lenses.
Handmade in Italy, the two new styles are enriched by the human touch, evoking a sense of connection between owner and object. The first new design – the Denali – features a bold rectangular shape, constructed from 10mm custom-laminated acetate. Available in three striking colorways, the Denali is a statement piece and a prime example of Les Monts’ intrepid design sensibility. The second new design – the Rainier – is an ode to timeless beauty. The Rainier’s soft-square form is fully constructed from premium titanium and clad with custom titanium nose pads. This understated classic features meticulous detail and is available in three rich colorways. The Denali and the Rainier are available on limited release with no more than 100 pieces of any color.
Casey Klugman, Creative Director and Founder of Les Monts, revealed “This June we’ll be adding two exciting, new, styles to the Les Monts collection: Denali and Rainier. Representing the pinnacle of Italian craftsmanship, each handcrafted style is gracefully executed in three sophisticated colorways. Additionally, we’ll be releasing best-selling model Zion in a fresh colorway: Moonstone, which we’re honored to learn has been selected for the cover of a leading eyewear publication, Invision Magazine in June 2022. As with all styles in the Les Monts collection, these exclusive new releases will be produced in quantities of no more than 100 pieces.”
Les Monts’ new releases are available exclusively on www.lesmonts.com. A percentage of annual revenue will go to Mental Health America (MHA), the nation’s leading non-profit mental health organization, in support of their continued and critical efforts to promote mental health for all.
