“The Marc Stone brand is a highly valued Swiss fashion label which has recently been awarded many prestige design awards and has a presence in all the major fashion centers around the globe,” said Jerry Dreifuss, CEO of the Swiss Eyewear Group. “Having the design team of Marc Stone join forces with the Swiss Eyewear design team will result in a stunning and revolutionary eyewear collection that remains true to the minimalist spirit of the Marc Stone label.”
