Designer Jessica Jung had an interview with luxury department store Lane Crawford about her new Blance & Eclare line. The Chinese mega-store is currently the first partner of the brand. It is selling Jessica’s sunglasses in the Shanghai, Hong Kong, and Chengdu branches. High five! In the interview, Jessica was asked about the inspiration for creating her brand, her fashion trend predictions and what super power she would like to have (What on earth?).
Interesting fact, the sunglasses are more expensive in the Lane Crawford shop! On average, they’re about $80 USD more than if you buy them from the official Blanc & Eclare online store. Wow. Why you ask? Each pair comes with a distinct case, which you can see below. It is still unknown whether the division sign is the Blanc & Eclare logo or just the sunglasses collection’s trademark.
