The eyewear game is a busy frontier. Once you allow yourself to start browsing, it’s easy to get lost in the bounty of options available. In and amongst the chaos, you’ll soon realize that few boast an armory quite as bold as that of GENTLE MONSTER.
When the daring eyewear brand truly kicked off the stabilizers and went all out on statement style with the launch of BOLD, it made it clear that it was carving out a lane of its own, a lane that would see it maximalize its iconography to create unforgettable styles.
GENTLE MONSTER has consistently pushed fire out of the gate, serving a selection of the coldest collaborations that the sunglasses game has ever seen, including but not limited to World of Warcraft and Maison Margiela.
Its portfolio of archival works certainly speaks for itself, but with the new levels set by the second drop of the fast-growing BOLD collection, it’s becoming impossible not to sing the brand’s praises.
This second drop is undoubtedly the most exciting of the two, expanding the arsenal with a fresh crop of new silhouettes that push GENTLE MONSTER’s branding motifs to the forefront with maximalist shapes.
Throughout the drop, styles like the Bree, Paso, and Yyy push the star-clad branding forward in the form of metal hardware, turning each of the frames into artistic centerpieces for the face.
Dialed up to the max with fine-tuned details, the collection, which is available online on April 28, is a rave-ready mix that shows BOLD is better.
