    So I was in Solstice Sunglasses today and the sales associate pointed out this new "futuristic Cristian Dior" frame. The second I saw it, it reminded me of the madman so I had to try it on. I hope the fit of the real Madman is similar to these because they were very comfortable.

    No - that's the first thing I looked up. Owned by Bernard Arnault, who also owns (or at least is majority shareholder of) LVMH. So there's no parent-company-cross-brand-design-sharing going on.


    EDIT - to clarify:
    "Christian Dior, the luxury goods group, is the main holding company of LVMH, owning 40.9% of its shares, and 59.01% of its voting rights. Bernard Arnault, majority shareholder of Dior, is Chairman of both companies and CEO of LVMH."

    I have a feeling come Feb 1st we'll see the first pics posted of madman and mars side-by-side, will give a better sense of scale... OTT too...

    Well the Christian Dior line is actually manufactured through lux so there is probably some crossover
