Introducing the new Maggie Norris for Selima line: Marlene Optique

We proudly unveil our Maggie Norris for Selima collaborative sunglasses, 'Marlene Optique.' Four distinctly colored frames, including both matte and polished finishes, inspired by the glamour and style of 1930's Hollywood darling Marlene Dietrich.

Maggie Norris is a consummate artist, infused with a passion that has taken her to the very height of design, Haute Couture, a world where art and beauty meld into a dialogue of craft and expertise.

            “My affinity to the Haute Couture craftsmanship is because of its unyielding perfection.”

    Maggie Norris has always designed her collections in an attempt to create pieces that are refined, unique and timeless. Furthermore, Maggie's Couture pieces have been featured in such publications as Vogue, Vanity Fair and The New York Times, and have been exhibited in museums such as the V&A, the Museum of the City of New York and The Museum of FIT.

Our ‘Marlene Optique' exudes a similar style and sophistication her clients have come to respect.

Find the Marlene available at Selima Optique stores in New York and Paris, in our online shop, and stockists worldwide.

Introducing the Money 3

In light of the never ending demand of our coveted Money 2 sunglasses, we had our sights set on a third installment.
Before Sunrise, Before Sunset, Before Midnight...The Lord of the Rings...The Godfather...Every great series deserves a trilogy.

For those that found the Money 2 to be a tad too snug, the new Money comes in at 3mm wider, and 5mm deeper than the Money 2, just about the size of the first Money frame. The original Money was introduced in the mid 1990's as part of a Mafioso inspired collection consisting of the Money, Pimp, Gang & Mafia styles.

We are proud to present the Money 3.

Available in four classic colors:

Cobalt Blue/Navy Auburn Tortoise
