Gentle Monster Eyeglasses
An Explorative Essence
Gentle Monster eyeglasses capture an ever-evolving vision.
Pushing the limits between classic design, modern expression and unpredictable exploration, Gentle Monster’s rise to the top of the eyewear industry has been significant and striking. Founded in South Korea by Hankook Kim in 2011, the brand was born not only out of the desire to break the mold of eyewear design, but also to explore new approaches to artistic creation and relentless experimentation.
Defining itself as sophisticated yet provocative, the label blends a gentle appreciation for timeless expression with bold drama and daring dimensions. With their forward-facing ideas, their silhouettes manage to capture the excitement of innovation with the essentiality of wearability.
Classic steel-frame optical styles are elevated with new, considerate volume, lightweight silhouettes and premium materials such as titanium and chrome.
Create and Collaborate
The eyewear house’s passion for constant self-invention and reinvention is from even the layout of their retail outlets. Each unique and highly thematic, these spaces are designed alongside selected artists and visionaries, whose designs also extend to the brand’s digital spaces and online identity.
With their laser-sharp attention to authentic creativity, the brand has partnered with a selection of tastemakers for limited edition collections throughout the years. Most recent of which have been collections designed in collaboration with Blackpink’s Jennie Kim, Tilda Swinton and Diplo.
The cult brand has also won the seal of approval by a number of celebrities. From Justin Bieber to Little Nas X and Gigi Hadid, it's not hard to see why this brand has solidified its creative space within the eyewear industry.
