COLAB is the minimalist art board upon which celebrated artists, designers, innovators and creators from all walks, fields and backgrounds can sketch on.
It is a blank page; it is a celebrated whitespace. Eyewear is not just fashion, and not simply function. In the eyes of COLAB and the artists we work with, eyewear is another medium for art.
Every season we collaborate with a new group of artists. We climb a hill, draw on some rocks and re-emerge adorned in some unique, handmade, limited edition eyewear.
Each style starts from absolute scratch. There are no constraints, no target markets to appease, no monks with pointy sticks. We leave the design to the artists and let them drop their deepest eyewear desires on us. COLAB gathers these sketches, and using some refined techniques and the Magical Science of Production, creates real, almost breathing, breathtaking high quality eyewear.
Each set of finished frames are limited to 1000 pairs across the globe, each one individually numbered (i.e 257/1000).
