Three models of sunglasses that make up the final version of the collection — three women, icons, antipodes: Tilda Swinton, Julianne Moore and Cate Blanchett. We were able to bind their images through a mystery play of their exceptional talent and the obscure dark world that lives within each of us, that surrounds us, comes to us in most harrowing and bizarre dreams.
Dark forces of BLACK MANTIS are the allure and menacing appearance of the insects or creatures from old sci-fi movies „Alien“ and „Predator“. Their anatomical structure, fangs and face masks became the cornerstone of ideas for the collection. Moreover, these are images of vampires and the atmosphere of cult films as „Only Lovers Left Alive“ and „The Hunger“.
BLACK MANTIS is our tribute to the philosophy of predators: beautiful, dangerous and aggressive.
We dedicate this collection to three women whose images are piercing, dementing and mesmerising.
The models are based on feminine cat-eye shape and transformed into aggressive unisex shades. Black is the primary colour of the collection — colour of night hunters and mysterious forces.
Collection includes 3 models, each model is presented in 3 colour combinations.
