Established in 1972, EYEVAN is the first Japanese eyewear brand bringing in the concept of “Eyewear for dressing as a fashion item”. With the hands of skilled craftsman, the state-of the art machine tools and the aesthetic sense of design team, EYEVAN has been creating everlastingly classic art pieces. In the Spring/Summer collection, EYEVAN pays tribute to the book “Dougu Mandara” which was published in 1976 and is a complication of tools made by Japanese craftsmen. Fascinated and attracted by the beauty of the tools and the strength of the shapes, which are made to be used for a long time, EYEVAN incorporated this world view into the design of the collection.
An iconic model Webb with metal temples. The temples are hand-carved by craftsmen with mill patterns on the top and bottom, and on the sides by a three-dimensional press with a traditional Japanese design.
Inspired by the product in the book “Designer: No Name”, this sirmont blow model has a 3mm wide metal rim with mill patterns on the front part of the rim. The temples are inspired by the cable temples of the 30s, hand-carved by craftsmen with mill patterns on the top and bottom, and on the sides by a three-dimensional press with a traditional Japanese design. Three-dimensional end piece, end tip and rivets, each part is made with the utmost care.
A model which expresses EYEVAN’s vision for French vintage by the thick edgy front and extra thick wide temples. The front and temple hinges are original reproductions of designs from the 60’s and placement hinges is adopted. It is the model with attention to the detail.
