A new season for the Japanese adventure! The FACE A FACE designers continue their artistic journey to the heart of contemporary Japanese design with Shiro Kuramata, Issey Miyake, Rei Kawakubo, and others. They are all designers whose work combines delicacy with a disruptive aesthetic – a fascinating contrast that permeates the vision of the JAPAN NOW collection.
Dare to be creative! Go where they reinvent and recite poetry. Make the unexpected happen. The FACE A FACE philosophy.
HAORI, a ready-to-wear kimono
Continuing the brand’s exploration of the kimono aesthetic, these glasses remodel and revisit the iconic Japanese garment with originality and meticulous attention to detail. A color palette inspired by kimono prints illuminates the design, with smoky gradients enhanced by solid color dots and graphic floral patterns.
CARAR, Raw and natural. Glasses crafted from the material.
This model features impeccably precise beveled bonding and hand-polished finish. Superimposed colored slices give these glasses their radical aspect. A palette of nature-inspired materials ranges from stormy grey to a brown horn reminiscent of the animal world.
REEDS, As delicate and solid as a reed
Poetry and precision meet and make friends in the curves of the delicate REEDS. Inspired by the aesthetic of reeds, they invite you to dive into a Japanese landscape: natural poetry meets geometric severity. A fine, sharp line of constant width runs from the eye to the endpiece, giving this design its delicacy and rigorous crafting.
MATICS, Transform mechanics into aesthetics
Transforming mechanical components with an aesthetic bias: a bold and ultimately creative choice offered by the amazing MATICS. These spectacles enjoy subverting the functional components, such as the normally hidden rim lock, to better showcase it using color.
