OUR STORY

Modo was born in 1990 in Soho, New York, under the entrepreneurial spirit of its founder, Alessandro Lanaro. Modo has evolved into a company that designs, manufactures and distributes a successful portfolio of house brands, designer brands and contemporary lifestyle brands – all under the common denominator of design and innovation.

Our brands include Modo, Eco, Derek Lam, Jason Wu and 7 For All Mankind. Modo is a global company with offices in New York, Milan and Stockholm.

Today, Modo drives the eyewear industry’s effort in sustainability and social responsibility. With initiatives like producing frames with recycled content or biobased materials (Eco brand), planting trees for every frame sold (Eco’s “one frame – one tree”), giving free spectacles to those in need (Modo’s “buy a frame – give a frame”), Modo is a pioneer in merging style and purpose.
