I collect sunglasses.
I’ve lost count of the occasions i’ve picked up a pair (or two) at the airport/s, pacifying myself that it’s duty-free and totally okay to buy (despite probably already having spent a little too much money on whatever trip that was). High end, high street, brandless, vintage; I don’t mind them all.
Even if i don’t wear a particular design regularly, i just like it sitting there amongst my many other pairs. (Options are never a bad thing.) I also like the thought of them coming to life and having fiery discussions amongst themselves in the drawer.

The cult Korean eyewear brand crafts classic and edgy designs suited for Asian faces and has taken off in global proportions (collaborated with Opening Ceremony, covered by Vogue, worn by Chanel Iman). Check out their art installation projects on their website, gives you a clearer vision of what the brand is about.
