Details

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.

FAKBYFAK™ is a multicultural fashion brand that combines innovative design and advanced technology. The cultural references and the avant-garde research are the basis of their concept, thanks to the elaboration with pop sophistication of elegant artistic quotes and anecdotes full of romantic charm. Fashion label FAKBYFAK™ was founded in 2016. The founders had no experience in the fashion industry before, but their naive approach to the eyewear and fashion industries turned out to be their biggest strength and fortune. FAKBYFAK™ was included by the Italian Fashion Council and Vogue Talents in the list of TOP 100 best-emerging brands in 2018. The brand develops eyewear collections for avant-garde Belgian designer Walter Van Beirendonck and cooperates with talents who cultivate non-mainstream ideas, having the sense of exposed nerve.
