Ashley Benson has teamed with eyewear brand Prive Revaux once again to design a line of sunglasses.
The Pretty Little Liars actress, who is a partner in the affordable eyewear brand along with Jamie Foxx and Hailee Steinfeld, first released her own designs with the company in 2017, and has now designed the Prive Revaux x Benzo collection, which refers to her nickname.
The collection features three frame styles – a narrow version of a cat-eye named Olive, after her dog, a futuristic design with side shields labelled Planco, after her best friend, and a classic rectangular style named Victoria, after her middle name. Each design has acetate frames, polarised lenses and anti-blue light optical technology and will retail for $39.95 (£32).
“Everyone calls me Benzo and it adds more of a personal touch to it,” she said to WWD. “The Plancos are different and not everyone can wear them, but that’s my personality, I’m very different and I wanted some of the pairs to be really unique. And the others I would wear every day.”
The 29-year-old wanted the line to be affordable because she’s aware her fanbase is largely quite young.
“I have fans of all ages, but PLL girls are young and no one wants to spend money on sunglasses,” the star continued. “You lose them all the time – I’ve lost every one I’ve ever bought and then you just buy them again and you wind up spending so much money. So, the fact that I was able to have something that my fans would love and afford was really important to me and it was fun to be in a collaboration with Jamie Foxx and Hailee Steinfeld.”
Ashley, who will do a countdown ahead of the sunglasses launch on 22 July, is already planning her next collaboration with the brand.
