Kenzo Takada collaborates with MASUNAGA, a leading Japanese eyewear manufacture. MASUNAGA designed by Kenzo Takada sunglasses and optical frames combine vintage inspired elements with fashion forward contemporary design. Delicate engraving on the bridge, the bar and the temples are reminiscent of 1920’s jewelry details. The original rim is designed with the star motif from MASUNAGA GMS and Kenzo Takada’s family emblem Campanule flower.
Inspired by a Japanese Kimono, Mr. Kenzo’s early, highly desirable collection included easy to wear smocks, tunics, oriental blouses and wide legged trousers.
Because of his refleshing use of color, pattern and print, he was called “The magician of colors” and made him one of the most important fashion designers who led the Prêt-à-Porter in Paris.
MASUNAGA designed by Kenzo Takada “Campanule K18” won the Silmo d’Or 2014 for the Sunglass category.
The model Campanule consists of titanium, acetate and 18 karat gold. The temples are fashioned from MASUNAGA’s highly skilled welding technology using pure titanium and solid 18 karat gold.
