Modo Eyewear is a young brand that is working to make a difference in the eyewear industry through its charity initiatives.
Born in the 90s, in Soho, NYC, Modo Eyewear was started by a innovative, young designer named Alessandro Lanaro. Since its founding, Modo has focused on innovation and design. Modo Eyewear has created amazing partnerships to create brands like Eco,Derek Lam, and Jason Wu in order to expand the Modo Eyewear culture and to expand their charitable initiatives while still creating innovative eyewear.
Today, Modo Eyewear has put an emphasis on charity and innovation. Its Eco brand is only made of recycled content or biobased materials, and for every Eco frame bought, Modo Eyewear plants a tree. Through Eco, Modo is leading the eyewear industry in sustainability. Modo Eyewear is also focused on social responsibility with its “buy a frame-give a frame” campaign. For every pair of Modo Eyeglasses that is bought, Modo Eyewear also donates a pair of glasses to a person in need as a part of the World Health Organization’s Vision 2020 initiative.
Modo Eyewear features bold, bright colors with edgy, fun frames. Frames are made of Acetate, Titanium, Monel, and even a mix of all of these materials. These materials are hypoallergenic, sturdy, and the metals are corrosion resistant. Modo Eyewear features mostly full rim frames in round, rectangle, and cat-eye frame fronts. Most frames are progressive-friendly.
Modo Eyewear is for a professional looking for a pop of color or a modern, edgy frame.
