WHO WE ARE

    Actually the whole MESSYWEEKEND team is in our video, there are no actors... Except for the two models - unfortunately we are not that hot.
    The co-founders of MESSYWEEKEND are serial entrepreneurs Morten Heick, previous investment banker and tech entrepreneur, along with Marc Østerskov, FMCG, telco, and e-commerce marketer.

    Why?
    We just didn't understand why the price of a pair of sunglasses is so high. That’s why we traveled to China and Taiwan in September 2017 to visit sunglass manufacturers. As expected, there was a gap between production costs and the selling price. An Italian manufacturer accounts for almost 80% of all eyewear sales in the West. They own most of the big brands we know and their huge market share is the main reason that we often pay hundreds of dollars for a pair of sunglasses. We feel that there’s a player missing in the market – someone who offers quality and design without the consumers having to pay way too much. That is our goal.
    We want to stand for what makes us happy, what makes us forget everyday life, and what makes the weekend feel a little bit longer. Everyday should feel like a Friday. Our messages shouldn’t be taken too seriously. We don’t believe that our target audience sees the same value in pretentious brands as they once did, and we want to be on the same level as our target audience. That is why we offer designer sunglasses in top-notch quality for a fair price – all packaged in straightforward communication.
