Patrick Mason just teamed up with Ray-Ban for a designer pair of sunglasses. Only 100 pieces will be made in Italy, and available at Dover Street Market, ray-ban.com, and flagship stores. It’s called: the Ray-Ban State Street model.
This is the work of unmistaken vision identity and talent of Patrick. It takes “oblivion” and the creation of the universe as inspiration. Secondly, the obsidian black upper frame contrasts with the amber lower effect frame. Thirdly, it is fused with a UV-sensitive fluorescent element in between. As a result, it embodies translations between the present into the future.
The RB logo symbolizes tradition and authenticity and sits neatly atop the lightly mirrored photochromatic lenses. That is to say, the lens turn from clear to grey. Magnetic balls hold an oversized chain for ear support. Reinventing the frames from State Street model archives, the Berlin artist’s theme is opposing forces.
Nature vs. tech, material vs. chaos, tradition vs. innovation, past vs. future, rough vs. smooth. This pair of sunnies blurs the line between art and style. You’ll feel like the next level with these frames, if not a little extra. It comes in a black, egg-shaped packaging, ready to give birth to your new species of eyewear. You’ll receive a card signed by Patrick as well.
