ILLESTEVA DEBUTS MICHAEL JACKSON COLLABORATION
illesteva Partners with the Michael Jackson Estate to Launch Limited-Edition Eyewear
August 8th, 2017 (New York, NY) – New York based eyewear label, illesteva, today announced the launch of a limited-edition sunglass style in collaboration with The Estate of Michael Jackson.
Illesteva x Michael Jackson sunglasses are inspired by the iconic sunglasses Michael Jackson wore throughout his career, most notably during his acceptance speeches at the 1984 Grammys (he won a record-setting 8 awards), the opening number of his Dangerous Tour concerts, and his game-changing performance at the Super Bowl XXVII half-time show in 1993, the first ever performance by a recording artist superstar during half-time.
The original aviator style frame reimagined by illesteva, was created using a single sheet lens. The sunglass’ gold mirrored face is accented with lightweight gold temples and engraved with Jackson’s signature.
illesteva x Michael Jackson limited edition sunglasses release offers 200 numbered frames, retailing for $240, and available for purchase at select illesteva stores and on illesteva.com.
