QUAY AUSTRALIA AND

TONY BIANCO JOIN FORCES,

AND SARAH ELLEN LOOKS FIRE IN THE FRAMES.

Two iconic Melbourne brands, Quay Australia and Tony Bianco, have teamed up to create the ultimate Melbourne-inspired sunnies collection.

Consisting of seven styles and 16 colourways, the capsule collection speaks to a trend driven fashion customer with 90's inspired classic silhouettes, tortoiseshell and monochromatic tones reigning supreme.

With both brands experiencing phenomenal international success, and their iconic accessories worn by the world’s most influential celebrities and fashion elite, it was the perfect timing to partner on a collection.

Strategic collaborations are a significant part of our brand’s DNA, and it was a natural fit for us to team up with Tony Bianco and create a sunnies range crafted in, and inspired by Melbourne, where both brands were born.

Johanna Scully, General Manager, Quay Australia.

With Melbourne on their mind, the creative teams at both brands masterminded the capsule collection, staying true to Melbourne’s fashion style of strong monochromatic colours and frames that suit any individual style.  The campaign was photographed in Melbourne's CBD and modelled by Aussie IT-girl Sarah Ellen, herself a major force in the fashion world.

We’ve always had a strong collaboration strategy here at Tony Bianco, and joining forces with Quay Australia has allowed us to create a really cool collection of sunglasses and further extend our offering to our fashion-hungry customer.

Anthony Bianco, Director, Tony Bianco.

The Quay Australia x Tony Bianco range is available from October 19 with sunnies retailing between AUD $55-$60. The collection will be available online at quayaustralia.com.au, tonybianco.com, Tony Bianco boutiques nationally and select retailers worldwide.
