*R&B artist, Mary J. Blige has finally decided to market her signature look, sunglasses. Since her debut in 1991, the singer has changed her hair, dress, make-up, and dance, but she always stayed true to wearing some saucy shades.
In collaboration with premium eyewear company, Orange 21, she has developed a sunglasses line called Melodies by MJB. Set to hit stores in the fall, Melodies will come in four styles and 20 different colors that represent Blige.
She has also started a line of t-shirts and her own fragrance.
“To reach out beyond music, an artist has to become involved with something
they’re already associated with and truly feel passionate about and not just
stick their name on someone else’s product. As her fans know, Mary loves
fashion and she especially loves sunglasses, making Melodies by MJB a natural fit for her,” said Jimmy Iovine, the head of her label, Interscope Records.
