Sabae, Fukuishi - the eyewear capital of Japan is responsible for producing arguably the best optical accessories in the world. Mixing old world craftsmanship with modern production techniques, brands like Native Sons, Max Pittion and ayame have made strong and reputable names for themselves throughout the industry.
With the days starting to get a bit longer, I've been itching for a few new pairs of sunglasses. The latest collection by ayame showcases a homage to vintage styles with unique and meticulous detailing seen along the bridges, temple arms and hinges. All hand finished in small batches, the price point is relatively fair; though I'd need to get my hands on a pair to test out the quality and fit. Browse this current lineup, available now through select Japanese retailers, including Coverchord.
