Kenzo Takada Amarylis
Kenzo Takada Amarylis is a Cat-Eye shaped pair of sunglasses with all metal construction. Double Rim from design with spaces at the bridge and the upper sim is inspired by the Japanese aesthetic of space. It features newly designed temple created with a motif from a lorgnette handle that was popular in the 19th century. Engraved arabesque patterns on both front and back add beautiful vintage elements to the frame.
Kenzo Takada collaborated with MASUNAGA, a leading Japanese eyewear manufacture. MASUNAGA designed by Kenzo Takada sunglasses and optical frames combine vintage inspired elements with fashion forward contemporary design. Delicate engraving on the bridge, the bar and the temples are reminiscent of 1920’s jewelry details. The original rim is designed with the star motif from MASUNAGA GMS and Kenzo Takada’s family emblem Campanule flower.
Inspired by a Japanese Kimono, Mr. Kenzo’s early, highly desirable collection included easy to wear smocks, tunics, oriental blouses and wide legged trousers.
Because of his refreshing use of color, pattern and print, he was called “The magician of colors” and made him one of the most important fashion designers who led the Prêt-à-Porter in Paris.
