New York, NY, May 15, 2020 –Revo, the iconic sunglass brand known for its NASA-based polarized lens technology, has launched a capsule collection with johnnie-O, the modern men’s lifestyle brand.
The collection fuses Revo’s signature cutting edge technology with johnnie-O’s East Coast classic meets Southern California lifestyle aesthetic. The result is a polished yet laid-back collection of sunglasses featuring four distinct styles– Pursuit, a versatile sports wrap; Venture, a flattering timeless square; Aspire, a lightweight navigator featuring rubber temple tips; and Wingman, the quintessential aviator.
“Our brand heritage and leadership in lens technology are what set Revo sunglasses apart, but the opportunity to partner with cool brands like johnnie-O is what really excites us,” said Cliff Robinson, Revo CEO. “It’s more fun when you enjoy the people with whom you collaborate; I love johnnie-O clothing and felt this really was THE perfect fit! We couldn’t be happier with how the collection turned out.”
“We are often approached by other bands to do collaborations, but when Revo approached us, it was a no brainer,” said John O’Donnell, johnnie-O founder. “I have always been a big Revo fan going back to my days at UCLA in the mid 80’s, and to have my very own johnnie-O by Revo sunglasses is very cool. If only I had them back with me at the Sigma Nu house!!!”
The Revo x johnnie-O capsule collection is available exclusively on Revo.com and johnnie-O.com.
