Streetwear fashion house Hood By Air (HBA) collaborates with eyewear brand Gentle Monster to create a contrast between past and future. The clothing in Shayne Oliver’s S/S 16 collection were inspired by his childhood in the Caribbean, while the eyewear translate a modernized future done by Gentle Monster.
The collection is available in three different models – Marz, Jacuzzi, and Hirakish. Marz is an oversized ski-mask-like frame with good coverage, while exposing the eyes. Jacuzzi is an oval cat-eye where the frame pops out from the lens, while Hirakish does the exact opposite. The whole collection is made up of acetate and stainless steel, and is suitable for the men and women who are not afraid to make a statement with their streetwear.
The frames are available on HBA and Gentle Monster’s website, pricing at $380-$430 USD.
