Also premiered will be a design collaboration between the retailer and legendary graffiti artist and fashion designer Claw Money.
An in-store, experimental and interactive “photo booth”, Social Sun enables customers to see themselves in several sunglass styles at the same time, making “finding your cool” effortless. It provides users with the ability to email these pictures to friends, share on Facebook, or post on in-store flat screens for immediate feedback and reactions to their selected sunglasses. They also have the option of adding fun tag lines and captions to their image.
“Both Sean Paul and Claw Money are unique, and inherently cool players on the cultural scene,” says Fabio d’Angelantonio, Chief Marketing Officer for Sunglass Hut. “They reflect Sunglass Hut’s idea that being true to yourself is the ultimate cool.” Jack Krause, General Manager, Sunglass Hut North America adds “Social Sun allows us to further distinguish Sunglass Hut as a leader in retail innovation.
