Brando Eyewear, the luxury subsidiary of Mondottica International, has acquired Australian sunglasses brand Sunday Somewhere.

According to a statement from Mondottica, the deal will allow the company to capitalise on the strength of demand for the brand, as it takes on the staff, customer base and “state of mind” of Sunday Somewhere. The financial aspects of the deal have not been disclosed, but prior to the acquisition Sunday Somewhere had a presence in more than 1,000 stores across 30 countries.

It had also managed to generate substantial global publicity after it cultivated a strong celebrity following, with the likes of Beyonce, Ariana Grande and Pink all pictured wearing sunglasses from its various collections.


“The Sunday Somewhere team can all be proud of what has been achieved and excited to see further success as the brand becomes more accessible to consumers around the world.”
Dave McHenry, Sunday Somewhere managing director

Managing director of Sunday Somewhere Mr Dave McHenry said he was extremely grateful to people who had been part of the business’ “incredible journey.”

“The Sunday Somewhere team can all be proud of what has been achieved and excited to see further success as the brand becomes more accessible to consumers around the world,” he said.

It is hoped the business deal will allow Sunday Somewhere to leverage Mondottica’s expansive supply chain network, while simultaneously tapping into some of the industry’s best talent and state-of-the-art resources.”

Mr Julian Clarke, the global commercial director for Brando Eyewear said he was delighted to welcome the Australian business to the Brando portfolio.

“We’re looking forward to their team joining us and we’re dedicated to perpetuating the Sunday Somewhere state of mind.”

Meanwhile, Brando CEO and founder Mr Michael Jardine added, “The Brando family is a collection of in-house contemporary eyewear brands each with their own unique product and position in the market.
