“For 30 years, Police has maintained its tradition of producing trendy, high-quality eyewear and accessories. For its anniversary, we continue this tradition by introducing a brand new line that evokes style and attitude, two qualities that can be found in all of our products,” remarks Police Brand Manager Stefano Bozzo.
30 years of Police: a look back
Bozzo shares that since the inception of Police in the early 1980’s, the brand has introduced iconic styles that crossed borders and represented generations. One of these styles, introduced in the late 1980’s, was the double profile glasses, a unique design with a square and classical shape which embellished the frontal part of the face.
The style was followed in the early 1990’s when Police introduced the rock and roll lifestyle and urban fashion to its line of eyewear. In 1993, Police made another splash with the introduction of the iconic blue mirrored lens. The style became a great success and continues to be popular today.
Hollywood picked up on the Police lifestyle trend in the late 1990’s and early 2000’s. Global brand ambassadors such as Bruce Willis, George Clooney, David Beckham and Antonio Banderas brought their own unique appeal to Police. The youth also became a focal point of the brand, when Police launched its Be Younique campaign in 2010.
Riding the K-Pop wave
From iconic aviators to trend-setting blue tinted eyewear, Police is continuing the trend by riding on the K-Pop wave. From TV dramas, Korean music, food and fashion, it’s no doubt that K-Pop is here to stay. Bozzo reveals that together with Police’s 30th anniversary, the brand is set to introduce the Police K-Pop line.
The line pays homage to Police Eyewear’s best-selling blue-tinted sunglasses, the S8299 model, which features a metal frame and polarized mirror lenses. The Police K-Pop Line updates the best-selling look with new colored lenses while adding a sophisticated look and feel.
Tapping local talent
Following the footsteps of popular Police brand ambassadors, Police has also tapped three local talents to represent the Police lifestyle in the Philippines. Bozzo reveals that these three ambassadors were selected as they embody what Police is all about. Young, cutting edge and adored by many, actor Will Devaughn, actress Roxanne Barcelo and top male fashion blogger David Guison were tapped to be the new faces of Police.
