Blake Kuwahara is recognized as one of the preeminent designers in eyewear today. Kuwahara launched his exclusive eponymous range of sunglasses and optical frames in Fall 2014, as inspiration from a conversation with a friend looking for ‘stylish, but understated’ glasses. By using laborious production techniques and a lot of handwork, an inner silhouette is encased in an unexpectedly fresh outer shape. This seamless fusion of two frames and the juxtaposition of contrasting form and color create a design tension that is thoroughly modern yet comfortably familiar. They are artful but wearable.
