Black Lightning Glasses by FAKBYFAK x Walter Van Beirendonck
The most recent collaboration project between Walter Van Beirendonck and Russian fashion eyewear label FAKBYFAK resulted in 4 fantastic sunglass styles called:"Thunder & Lightning, Donder & Bliksem“.
The glasses were designed as the key accessory for Walter van Beirendonck’s FW’18 ready-to-wear collection: "Worlds of Sun and Moon". Donder & Bliksem glasses are the symmetrical version of Thunder & Lightning\ styles. The idea was to create masculine glasses with a brutal beauty look, steeped in the spirit of „Flintstones-glamour“.
Handcrafted acetate frame surface looks like as if it’s made of hand-formed matte clay. Matte finished frames, as well as the black lenses, have a contemporary „anti-bling-bling“ spirit. Signature „W“ letter made as one part with the left temple.
This limited edition collection was presented on Paris Fashion Week in January 2018.
