Seoul-based label Gentle Monster returns to present campaign imagery centered around its brand new capsule collection titled “Once Upon a Future.” The themed lineup depicts a fictional future, one in which humans and extraterrestrial alien lifeforms amicably coexist with one another.
Artistically on point with offerings from seasons past, elaborate eyewear silhouettes take center stage, bordering everything from oversized circular shapes, sleek lens configurations, hexagon-style builds and much more. Aside from its peculiar shapes, sunglasses also bank on a wide array of tonal motifs, with black, orange, blue, yellow, red and metallic options well represented. Standout styles include specs that resemble a mini vinyl record with a visible opening at the nose area and a thin metal mouthpiece, as well as a sleek pair that boasts a concave-style frame/lens combo.
Gentle Monster’s “Once Upon a Future” collection will make its debut on June 15 through the brand’s online shop.
