Created for and named in honor of DE founder Joseph Macaluso's mother, Marie Macaluso. Darylynn never had the privilege of meeting her as she lost her battle to Breast Cancer years before she met Joseph. When it came time to design this style she reflected on the stories told about Marie, how fun, bold and fabulous she was. Researching her style via old photo albums the over-sized frame began to take shape. Marie is often described by her son Joseph as a "tough cookie who took no punches". With all this in mind, Darylynn knew the materials would be of great importance so she worked with her Italian crew to create this unique acetate that is half Clear, half ink infused. It represents perfectly Marie's legacy of sugar and spice. It also comes in vibrant Tortoise Shell and Black, both with shiny finish. Signature Gold triangle inlay in temple.
