Unmatched artistry, cutting-edge design, and a drive for creative exploration is what make Matsuda Eyewear stand out from the rest. For over five decades, this world-famous Japanese brand has remained a Hollywood favorite, both on- and off-screen. You could see the iconic Matsuda glasses at Linda Hamilton’s Sarah Connor in “Terminator 2: Judgment Day”; at Chris Hemsworth in the Netflix movie “Extraction” (2020), at Robert Downey Jr. in "Iron Man 3 Super Bowl Trailer," and other movie stars. The list of celebrity fans also includes Rob Lowe, Brad Pitt, Melissa McCarthy, Jamie Foxx, and Amanda Seyfried, just to name a few. Appreciated for intricately embellished, yet surprisingly restrained interpretations of iconic eyewear styles, Matsuda’s designs became a favorite of glamourpusses and design aficionados throughout the globe.
Inspired by Victorian art, Gothic architecture, and American jazz, Matsuda creates the one-of-a-kind eyewear pieces featuring avant-garde design steeped in cultural heritage. The fashion house never stops seeking new innovative techniques to fulfill its ideas. Only the best masters and architects work in the renowned eyewear workshops of Sabae, Japan to bring the most audacious and daring designs to life. Every hinge, every temple, and every detail is delicately considered and uniquely designed for each of the Matsuda eyewear collections. From their innovative pince-nez bridges to the authentic side shields, Matsuda sunglasses and optical frames are an unmistakable homage to the brand’s heritage today, redefined for tomorrow.
The Matsuda eyewear is famous for its exquisite craftsmanship and refined details, as well as its use of engraved metals. Every frame is a seamless merge between innovation and traditional techniques. After completing its almost 250 step process, the spectacles are perfectly aligned and adjusted then fitted with lenses before being packaged and shipped out all over the globe. The Matsuda sunglasses feature the one-of-a-kind CR-39 lenses that are lighter and more durable than glass and filter out 100% of harmful UVA and UVB light. Each lens is treated with seven layers of anti-reflective coating. This reduces eye strain by eliminating unwanted reflections. For even better clarity, the Matsuda polarized lenses filter out distracting glare and improve contrast.
Matsuda has three eyewear lines: the Essential Collection that offers new designs drawing upon the brand’s iconic details made of stainless steel, pure titanium, and premium-quality Japanese acetate; the Heritage Collection that features the limited production re-issues of best-selling original styles; and the Precious Collection that includes frames made from luxurious materials, including solid 18k gold, hand engraved sterling silver, and genuine buffalo horn. Masterfully crafted sunglasses and optical frames are real pieces of art, a true pinnacle of high-end luxury eyewear!
