Blake Kuwahara Eyewear

Blake Kuwahara Eyewear

Each frame in the Blake Kuwahara Eyewear Collection has a unique inner silhouette encased in an unexpectedly fresh outer shape. Through a laborious, handmade process, the seamless fusion of two separate frames and the juxtaposition of contrasting form and color create a design tension that is thoroughly modern yet comfortably familiar.
It’s evident in his artful frames that Blake Kuwahara approaches creating eyewear as a meticulous discipline of design. His brand’s handmade styles evade that status quo with their experimental and nuanced identity.
