BLAKE KUWAHARA EYEWEAR : FUSION, MINIMALISM AND CONTRAST GAME
After an academic career as an optometrist, Blake Kuwahara, more interested in design, started in 1992, the exclusive Kata eyewear collection, revolutionizing production techniques to shape textures and details on frames.
Recognized as one of the 100 most important people in the eyewear industry, he is a member of the prestigious Council of Fashion Designers of America, in charge for the future designers development in the fashion industry.
Blake Kuwahara launched his eponymous brand in 2014. His aesthetic sense and attention to shapes and touch give birth to this amazing collection.
By using laborious production techniques and a lot of handwork, an inner silhouette is encased in an unexpectedly fresh outer shape. This seamless fusion of two frames and the juxtaposition of contrasting form and color create a design tension that is thoroughly modern yet comfortably familiar.
