WEB Eyewear and Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN have entered a multi-year partnership, starting 2022.
WEB Eyewear, a house brand of leading eyewear company Marcolin since 2008, aims to expand its international reach via the deal. The WEB Eyewear logo will appear on the team’s C42 cars, and the helmets and suits of the team’s drivers Valtteri Bottas and Guanyu Zhou, and the partnership will be underlined by the development of a branded capsule collection of sunglasses and optical frames, available in the second half of 2022.
“WEB Eyewear’s ambition is to create a new chapter in its own story, credible and consistent with the brand legacy but looking forward to a global future,” says Fabrizio Curci, Marcolin CEO & General Manager. “The partnership with Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN is certainly a significant step forward along this path. We are thrilled to enter the Formula One world alongside such an important brand.”
Frédéric Vasseur, Team Principal of Alfa Romeo F1 Team ORLEN adds: “We are delighted to start our journey with WEB Eyewear. Their commitment to style is a perfect match for our team, a blend of Italian elegance and Swiss precision, and theirs is a prestigious brand we are proud to have with us on the world stage. We are excited to develop a special collection with them and we can’t wait to present it to our fans later this year.”
