Cazal Celebrates 40 Years And Unveils Spring 2016 Exquisite Eyewear Collection
On Thursday, May 5, Cazal Eyewear celebrated their fortieth anniversary at Limelight Shops in Manhattan’s Chelsea district. The celebration displayed Cazal’s Spring 2016 Exquisite Eyewear Collection, and the audience got the opportunity to win a special pair of Cazal’s classic eyewear.
The night started with DJ Trauma, who provided some of the soundtrack for the night, while patrons sipped on Hennessy, Baron Tequila, Cîroc, and Luc Belaire bubbly. Special guests included R&B artist Tyson Beckford, Peter Gunz and Rich Dollaz (Love & Hip-Hop: NY), recording artist Uncle Murda, Cease from Black Ink Crew, celebrity event planner Nema, Bravo TV’s Tabasum, SFPL’s Rae Holliday and Gabriel Williams, and other notable influencers.
Cazal gained its popularity in the 1980s when it was embraced by inner-city youths who quickly deemed the bold, gold trimmed, large Cazal designs as “status wear”. Cazal soon became the most requested eyewear brand in the fashion world, sported by iconic legends such as Run DMC, Amber Rose, Sammie Davis Jr., Stevie Wonder, and most recently, Rick Ross, hip-hop star and founder of Maybach Music Group, Jay-Z, Beyoncé, Nas, Gwen Stefani, Cee Lo, Brad Pitt, Lady Gaga, and Carmelo Anthony, among many others.
