In 1972, Japanese label EYEVAN made its debut, gaining rapid popularity for creating products with timeless designs. The brand continued to make waves leading up to its global expansion in 1985, where the frames found approval from celebrities like Madonna, and Diana, Princess of Wales.

Not only were the products known for their tremendous craftsmanship and style, but also the futuristic promotional campaigns including brand books and movies inspired by Japanese culture.

EYEVAN's newest collection returns to its heritage, drawing from historic hand-sketched designs created between 1972 and 1985. These are the same styles that helped push eye glasses as fashion statement piece. The designs tastefully blend beautiful acetates with metals, and boast quality features like arabesque patterns and titanium details. Each pair comes in a unique aluminum case and box reproduced from the 1920s.

You can shop the eyewear from a selection of retailers including MR PORTER.
