Take your eyewear to the next level

Are you wondering where to find the perfect eyewear for your face? We have got you covered.

Professional, stylish, geeky, vintage or funky – you can achieve plenty of different looks by changing your style of glasses. And now you will have all these choices and more because of a cool new venture.

Marcolin Group, a worldwide leading eyewear company, announced has signed a joint venture agreement with Rivoli Group, one of the largest luxury retailers in the Middle East area.

The JV, named Marcolin Middle East, is 51 per cent owned by Marcolin Group and its headquarters will be based in Dubai in the United Arab Emirates.

It will distribute the eyewear collections of the Marcolin’s brand portfolio: Tom Ford, Balenciaga, Ermenegildo Zegna, Montblanc, Roberto Cavalli, Tod’s, Emilio Pucci, Swarovski, Dsquared2, Diesel, Just Cavalli, Kenneth Cole, Timberland, Guess, Gant, Harley-Davidson, Marciano, Sketchers and Web.

Giovanni Zoppas, CEO Marcolin Group, said: “The valuable long-term distribution agreement with Rivoli Group and the strong personal relationship and collaboration developed during these years with Ramesh Prabhakar, our partner in the JV, have been further strengthened establishing this capital partnership in Middle East, which represents such a key market for the luxury, fashion and diffusion brands in our portfolio and for the future of our company.”

Ramesh Prabhakar, Vice Chairman and Managing Partner of Rivoli Group said: “The Rivoli Group is extremely pleased with the development of the JV with Marcolin Group to service the Middle East and other specific markets.
