Yes, Kezo Takada is who you think he is: founder of eponymous Japanese label Kenzo -- but this project has little to do with the eccentric label we all know. After selling his label to LVMH in 1993, Takada has stayed relatively under the radar as a fine artist and sporadic collaborator in what we can only imagine is a quite fulfilling creative life, given the hectic fashion calendar.
His latest undergoing is a partnership with historic Japanese eyewear label Masunaga on a small run of signature sunglasses. The collection consists of six models crafted from embellished titanium and clean acetate for a modern look with nods to old-time craft. We especially love the stamped motifs inspired by 1920s watch design. See the full set above and find the limited capsule collection in-store at Dan Deutsch Los Angeles.
