FACE A FACE JAPAN NOW SS24

woman wearing FACE A FACE KIMONO

New sunglasses, new passion! Continuing FACE A FACE’s cultural and artistic journey, the company explores a unique group, namely its Japanese designers, which gradually leads it toward contemporary Japanese design.

This new aesthetic permeates the imagery of the JAPAN NOW collection. From the draped generosity of KIMONO to the sanded aesthetic of the NOTCHI notch, via the recasting of marquetry work in the playful ZAÏKU… Every one of these tells the story of this journey.

Dare to be creative! Go where they reinvent and recite poetry. Make the unexpected happen.

KIMONO

FACE A FACE KIMONO

Dare yourself in the beguiling curves of KIMONO! Ever seen the kimono reinvented as glasses? You have now. The exaggerated width of the temple thus evokes the wide sleeves of the kimono, the rounded bevel of the frame highlights the volume of the textile drape.

ZAÏKU

ZAÏKU

Be elegant and surprising: choose ZAÏKU. This Japanese term refers to extremely specific marquetry craftsmanship – the straw work that inspires these precise, intense sunglasses.

KAKEMO

KAKEMO

KAKEMO. For a mysterious and inspired look. A nod to the vertical pattern of the Japanese kakemono, KAKEMO glasses display an enigmatic contrast – between chunky curves and geometric elegance.

SHIRO

FACE A FACE SHIRO
SHIRO

Make everyday life a work of art with SHIRO. This model is a tribute to the steel mesh armchair by designer Shiro Kuramata, How High the Moon. The armchair is paradoxical, both solid and lightweight, just like these sunglasses with a dual aspect shape: transparent parts come to life and make light of the solid shapes.
