Foster Grant is the domestic leader in the popular-priced sunglass market. The Foster Grant brand has a long, rich heritage, which was embodied by the iconic “Who’s That Behind Those Foster Grants?” campaign featuring various celebrities of the time. Launched in the 1960s, the campaign influenced not only the industry but popular culture as well. Its influence remained so notable that it was named by Advertising Age magazine one of the Top 100 Ad Campaigns of the past century. “Who’s That Behind Those Foster Grants?” has evolved into the “Who Could You Be?” campaign, and stems from the fact that Foster Grant sunglasses are both stylish and affordable, allowing consumers to buy several pairs for whatever mood of occasion.
Additional sunglass brands include Anarchy, Angel and Gargoyles. These brands target a whole new demographic – a consumer that is adventurous, stylish and spontaneous. Anarchy, Angel, and Gargoyles explore additional diverse avenues of distribution to maximize their respective consumer appeal.
