Korean designer Kim Hankook founded cutting-edge eyewear brand Gentle Monster in 2011 with the intention of creating the perfect pair of frames. With its house philosophies rooted in the purity of design, experimentation, and technology, the label offers an avant-garde take on modern men’s eyewear. Its elegantly simple Didi A and Dreamer styles draw upon Hankook’s love of vintage eyewear, while the sculptural Love Punch and Big Bully models showcase his drive for innovation and artistry. Eye-catching sunglasses and optical glasses are crafted in colorful acetate and titanium and patterned with unique pearlescent and marbled finishes. For Fall 2016, Gentle Monster’s high-concept collaboration with Hood by Air introduces the futuristic Jacuzzi and Marzi models.
