Match Eyewear Launches Danny Gokey Sun

Match Eyewear’s introduction of Danny Gokey Sun at Vision Expo East was not only the debut of a new collection but also a new target audience for the brand - the sun wear line is designed for both men and women.

Though originally launched as a men’s collection, the Danny Gokey ophthalmic models have always had a strong female following. The continued popularity of Geek Chic is a factor, but the clean lines and classic styling of the brand can also be credited for the unisex appeal. In fact, the ophthalmic collection has recently been extended to include ladies’ styles. ‘We found that a significant percentage of sales could be attributed to women,’ says Match Eyewear President Ethan Goodman. ‘We are excited about the new women’s looks, but the sun wear collection was definitely created with universal appeal in mind.’

The four launch models from Danny Gokey Sun are a modern interpretation of vintage charm, speaking directly to the classic, genuine and unique style of the brand and delivering contemporary cool to men and women, between 18 and 35.

Match Eyewear will feature the new line in upcoming integrated marketing efforts. All Danny Gokey Sun products are accompanied by protective hard cases and branded cleaning cloths.
