Eastern States to Distribute Coco And Breezy Eyewear in U.S.


NEW YORK— Eastern States Eyewear (ESE) and Coco and Breezy have announced a joint agreement in which ESE will be the exclusive American distributor for the Coco and Breezy Eyewear collection.

Effective immediately, ESE and Coco and Breezy will team up to launch the brand’s latest sunglass collection. A full scale optical release will follow due for launch later this year. Existing U.S. customers can now purchase the collection and be serviced directly through Eastern States Eyewear.

“Each collection in our portfolio possesses a uniquely creative appeal or reaches out to a consumer whose tastes and needs they wished more brands spoke to,” said Paul Shyer, ESE president. “From our very first meeting with the Coco and Breezy team, it was apparent that they not only shared our spirit, but have both an original and engaged sense of what their customer is looking for.”

“We have had many opportunities to team up with people as we weave our way through the industry. Paul and his team are the first team that we have come across that we have managed to build a relationship with that is both organic and full of confidence. We feel very confident that we can forge forward together and make a difference in the eyewear industry,” stated the Coco and Breezy team.

Coco and Breezy was founded in 2009 by twin designers Corianna and Brianna Dotson. Their early designs, each handmade by the twins, were an instant hit in New York, and were seen on the faces of major celebrities and entertainers within weeks of the brand’s launch. Over time, Coco and Breezy have refined their design and production process, engaging in increasingly ambitious design projects, ranging from designing “third-eye” sunglasses for the late Prince, working with numerous artists to define their style, and with brands as divergent as Hershey’s and Foot Locker’s Six:02 athleisure concept store. The designers have been featured in most major fashion industry publications, including Vogue and Harper’s Bazaar. Music and creativity are integral to their design practice, and the twins DJ and create visual art in their spare time.

ESE will be showing the Coco and Breezy sunglass collection at Galleria booth G323 at Vision Expo East.
