Savant & Scholar was founded and designed by Jamel Marshall, who worked many years as an Optician in Chicago’s various luxury Eyewear Boutiques, only later to migrate to New York to pursue his dream as an eyewear designer.
While in New York he began to allow the Energy, Atmosphere, and unique Style expressed through the people who reside there, to influence and inspire his unique Designs.
The brand personifies “Renaissance” and is intended to represent the sophistication of the modern day Visionary.
Each design different than the other, tells its own story of Art, Culture, & timeless Nostalgia.
The eyewear is carefully comprised of custom components, then beautifully handcrafted showcasing it’s precise attention to detail.
Artistry that not only accommodates both Single Vision & Progressive lenses, but empowers through individual expression and creativity.
