New York Couturier Thom Browne recently launched his eyewear division, bringing to sunglasses and opticals the same high-touch sense of imagination that made his menswear line so well respected.
Browne explodes onto the market with this frame, which we think has already achieved icon status, right out of the box . The titanium frame derives inspiration from retro racing goggles, but instead of the traditional leather side shields, Thom Browne uses a fine metal mesh, completely thought-out with hinge and groove for when the glasses are folded.
Like the racing googles, Browne’s version employs cable temples, but caps them with a signature red, white and blue tip.
The completely flat lenses mean serious style, and a genuine buffalo horn brow bar provides natural contrast.
Thom Browne eyewear is all about clean lines, meticulous detailing (and lack of detailing!) and impeccable craftsmanship. Colors are straightforward and simple (think black with gold) or modern and uncombined (like matte grey). Designs are inspired by the the past but look to the future. They are handmade in Japan by master craftsmen. Take a peek at some of the other stand-out looks from the collection, below.
