Morel in 2020?

The 2020 Color of the Year echoes Morel’s own history as we celebrate 140 years of existence. Jules Morel made his first eyeglasses in 1880. Since that time, the brand has never ceased to grow and to refine its know-how, becoming the leading French manufacturer of today. A rich history, a powerful heritage, and love for eyeglasses are handed down to every new generation.

For 2020, Morel has also seen blue everywhere, but not just any blue. The brand has chosen Azur as a nod to its sun wear collection.
