David Green launches Eyewear with Real leaves – September 2010

David Green has turned a new leaf for the eyewear market.

The David Green brand is all about freshness and craftsmanship. The emphasis in on select materials, clever details, clean proportions and great comfort. The underlying look is style. Fashion comes and goes, style remains.

In David Green’s ongoing quest for EYES FOR THE ENVIRONMENT with “Green product”, he has launched a totally unique product concept whereby leaves are crafted within cotton based acetate material.

The result is a stunning look whereby the design is created by nature – literally. Each piece is individual. This takes the David Green “HAND MADE” signature to a new level. Leaves are available in various colours and forms. The material is made in France from a natural cotton based acetate.

David Green designs are unique, materials are sourced worldwide: acetate predominantly from Europe, nose pads from France, even a unique silicon based temple idea imported from Japan.

A comprehensive advertising campaign boasting the new look of this Green brand will be launched this September. David’s creative team have come up with a never been done before concept where frames visually make up a variety of tree images. This is in keeping with the fresh and innovative thinking of a brand that continuously challenges the conventional “celebrity with eyewear” communication.

The support campaign has several elements:

  • Print advertisements  in prestigious publications including Discovery, Golf Digest, Getaway, Odyssey and Simply Green
  • In Optometrist point of sale material that is innovative and top quality
  • An electronic social media campaign including Facebook, Twitter and blogging (see the new hot buttons on his website)
  • A cute miniature  booklet supplied with every frame that details what this brand is all aboutDavid Green 2010/2011 Point of Purchase campaign
