The Anne Klein 50th anniversary eyewear collection from Altair applauds the iconic brand with new sun and optical styles.


A visionary designer who brought her uniquely American point of view to the global fashion industry, Anne Klein created a brand with an iconic heritage. That legacy has been honored by the latest optical and sun styles of Anne Klein Eyewear, featuring vintage-inspired designs, modern detailing and celebratory splashes of gold, bridging decades of classic, wearable style.

“When developing this collection, we were influenced by the beautiful archival images and designs the Anne Klein


team shared with us,” said Altair product development team member Jennifer Nelson. “Vintage-inspired tortoise materials are key in this collection, as well as classic, feminine shapes and Anne Klein’s signature gold colorations. The 50th Anniversary Special Edition sunglass truly is a unique piece; the golden hues and striations of the handmade Italian acetate speak to the brand’s continued attention to detail.”


Since the brand’s inception in 1968, trailblazer and visionary fashion designer Anne Klein forever changed the way women dress. Her rich legacy and ongoing impact on American fashion continues today, fifty years later.

“In our design meetings with the Anne Klein team, the words ‘feminine,’ ‘classic’ and ‘soft’ are often spoken,” said Debra Ielpi from the Altair product development team. “We aim to keep the shapes and colorations feminine, yet classic. The lines and curves of each shape are soft and slightly rounded. These details mimic the craftsmanship that the Anne Klein brand has always exhibited in every category.”

The new eyewear collection is designed as four sunglass and optical pairs and one pair of limited edition sunglasses. The silhouettes include a range of square, rectangular and cat eye shapes with subtle, retro touches, offered in a tonal palette of tortoise, plum, mocha and burgundy.
