Blake Kuwahara’s stunning, versatile eyewear line is fairly new all things considered—four and a half years isn’t much in the big scheme of things. But Kuwahara the designer? Well, that’s a different story.
Kuwahara has almost three decades experience in design and a laundry list of big, big brands he worked with during that span. We won’t get into it, but you’ve no doubt seen—or even worn—his work in the past: it’s just had someone else’s name on it.
But a few years back Kuwahara decided to channel all that talent and experience into a brand that not only bears his name, but benefits from his meticulous approach to designing and engineering pieces that are—as his GRAVES collection shows—just as much design objects as they are stylish accessories. Experimental, nuanced, and endlessly versatile, they buck the status quo with elegance and intelligence.
