Maxwell Inks Second Exclusive Sunglasses Collection With State Optical Co.


Maxwell has realigned himself with STATE Optical Co.. to launch a second limited-edition sunglasses collection. The new line features five styles under the name BLACK _SUMMERS’_NIGHT, sharing the title of his album trilogy started in 2009. 


“Partnering with STATE for this second collection has been an incredible and rewarding experience,” Maxwell explained in a statement.


“Being really hands-on in the creation process, from beginning to end, has been very special and lends to the authenticity of the collection. This collection embodies my style.”


Available in three colorways, including a midnight blue frame, a rose gold frame, and a chrome frame, this collection of luxury sunglasses, priced at $375, go up for sale under an exclusive Valentine’s Day deal. It will give the buyers of the first 50 orders a collectors case signed by Maxwell. They will officially launch on March 1 on the official website. 


Like the REUNION edition, a portion of the proceeds will be donated to Vision Council's Open Your Eyes Scholarship (O-YES), helping high school seniors with different resources that desire to take a career path as an optician.


Last year, before accepting the Legend Award at the Soul Train Awards, Maxwell released his return single "Off". It’s the first single to his blacksummers’NIGHT, due this spring. 


The album’s campaign includes a heading Night Tour that features Anthony Hamilton and Joe as supporting acts. The 25-city trek kicks off on March 2 in Dallas at Texas Trust CU Theater. Tickets are on sale now.
