Alexander Wang and cult South Korean eyewear brand Gentle Monster have collaborated once again, following last year’s colourful CEO sunglasses sunglasses. The new eyewear range, titled M.PRI$$, was first revealed on the runway at the Alexander Wang Pre-Fall 2019 show and is now set for release next month.
The collection features two colour variations: The first is a black frame with gold details and the second is clear with silver details. Both come with 3D metallic snakes that wrap around the frame and flat oval lens, while the silhouette holds a subtle cat-eye shape. Each pair is presented in a large zip leather case, complete with Alexander Wang and Gentle Monster branding. We adore the black pair, which is chic, bold and adaptable for occasions, but feel the clear sunglasses allow a more casual aesthetic with a modern edge.
M.PRI$$ will be available from the Alexander Wang online store, or both Gentle Monster and Alexander Wang retail shops for US$320 (approx. HK$2500) from 12 September.
