Limited Edition Resort Collection Launches for Holiday 2012/2013

Luxury eyewear designer ROBERT MARC and the Caribbean oasis of Parrot Cay announce their collaboration and the creation of a new limited edition resort collection. Inspired by the private island retreat in the Turks & Caicos, the ROBERT MARC designs will launch in November, just in time for the holidays.

The ‘Parrot Cay’ resort collection combines the luxury materials of the renowned brand with sophisticated color-combinations, mirroring the breathtaking visuals of the remote archipelago. It features three sun models (Lotus, Tiki, and Caicos) and two optical models (Ayu and Veda) in four colors. With colors like ‘Iguana’ and ‘Tamarind,’ it’s easy to get into a Caribbean frame of mind; ‘Caribe’ and ‘Parrot’ complete the color palette.

“Parrot Cay is one of the most beautiful and unique locales I’ve visited. The color-combinations chosen for the collection were inspired by the calm, serene energy that surrounds the island,” says president and eyewear designer Robert Marc.

ROBERT MARC eyewear reflects a classic, modern and effortless style. Over the past 30 years, the brand has developed an international following of some of the world’s most discerning clientele through offering highly-tailored handcrafted pieces. It is no wonder the company drew inspiration from the beauty of Parrot Cay. The resort is situated on 1,000 unspoilt acres with a mile-long white sand beach and gin-colored waters. It is a haven for those seeking a truly restorative experience, with soothing, minimalist interiors, as well as daily yoga and Pilates and Asian-inspired therapeutic treatments.
The collection will be available in the 8 Robert Marc stores in New York City as well as exclusive dealers throughout the Americas, Europe, Middle East and Asia.
