Thom Browne, a designer who is best known for the workmanship and his almost obsessive attention to details, was awarded the 2013 Menswear Designer of the Year by The Council of Fashion Designers of America.
“As a designer, I’m supposed to be provoking people’s reactions, and getting people to see things differently. […] That’s the only way things move forward.”
In 2011, he teamed up with the LA-based luxury eyewear designer, Dita, to release unisex sunglasses styles inspired by the master architects, studio artists, industrial designers and professors of the 40s, 50s and 60s.
Each eyewear style is marked with the signature Thom Browne red, white and blue logo tip and four stripe hinge. For his metal collection, all eyewear frames are handmade of high-grade titanium delivering strength, lightness and comfort. Built to last, in Japan.
