Created by commercial film director zongbaik and fashion photographer Jang-Hyun Hong, this eyewear brand has already won a Red Dot Design Product Award – one of the most prestigious and most distinguished product design awards – for its innovative concept.
Basically you can interchange the lens frames with various “temples” or the two side arms of the glasses. There are five different frame shapes available – David, Sean, Arron, Glow and Zah – that come in black, grey, ivory, yellow and clear colourways. The “temples” are available in red, beige, violet, navy and brown.
The frames will cost $290 and the pairs of “temples” will cost $45 each so you can get one full set of glasses and then add new, different coloured side arms to go with your various outfits.
Made of a high quality plastic called T-90, these glasses are lightweight, rubber-coated, scratch-resistant and also resistant to extreme temperatures. The lenses of the sunglasses are a CR lens which protects against UV exposure too.
So, if you’re looking to stand out from the crowd – or follow in the super stylish footsteps of some of K-Pop’s most fashionable members – then you have to get hold of a pair of grafik:plastic glasses from Front Row.
The grafik:plastic range of eyewear will be available in-store at Front Row in early August 2012. Front Row is located at Raffles Hotel Arcade, #02-09 Tel: 6224 5501. For more information about the store go to www.frontrowsingapore.com.
