Frame within a Frame
Blake Kuwahara has a gifted talent, blessed with a savvy and unmistakable sense of style.
Recognized as one of the preeminent designers in eyewear world today, Blake Kuwahara creates an exclusive eponymous range of artful but wearable sunglasses and optical frames. Each pair of glasses is hand-assembled in Japan from richly colored acetate and features a sleek design, yet with a subtle but obvious edge.
By using laborious production techniques and a lot of handwork, Blake Kuwahara creates one-of-a-kind frames, with an inner silhouette encased in an unexpectedly fresh outer shape. This seamless fusion of two frames and the juxtaposition of contrasting form and color result in a design tension that is thoroughly modern yet comfortably familiar.
Kuwahara’s bold experimentation and innovation have gained him international recognition. A celebrity favorite, Kuwahara’s eyewear designs are worn by Catherine Zeta-Jones, Brad Pitt, Halle Berry, Sandra Bullock, Will Smith, Robert Downey, Jr., Samuel L. Jackson, and Charlize Theron among many others.
