Hakusan x Deus

Deus Ex Machina Japan have teamed up with Hakusan, the legendary Japanese optical frame makers to produce a special sunglass frame exclusively for their Tokyo flagship. The frame is finished in matte black with Hakusan's high quality signatures like brass five prong hinges and hand finished acetate. Limited to 100 pcs and available only from The Residence of Impermanence - Deus Ex Machina's Tokyo flagship store in Harajuku. This is Hakusan's first collaboration with a brand outside Japan. Founded in 1883 Hakusan has maintained its position at the pinnacle of Japanese eyewear for quality and style. Most famously in the summer of 1979, John Lennon visited Japan with his wife, Yoko Ono. Lennon and Ono browsed MILKBOY, a pioneer store in the 1970s Japanese punk scene. Lennon discovered Hakusan in the store and took a personal liking to Hakusan's eyewear. The glasses that Lennon wore in 1980 were the Hakusan "Mayfair" model and the cost was approximately $400 US. Lennon owned three different coloured frames (clear, caramel-yellow, and honey-orange) & each style frame was fitted with three different coloured lenses (brown, green and blue), so he had 9 pairs of them in total. http://hakusan-megane.co.jp/ DEUS EX MACHINA ×白山眼鏡店コラボレーション マットな質感で仕上げたDEUSの別注眼鏡 ブリッジ(鼻元)の形状が特徴的な、ウェリントン型のフレームを持つDECO。 もともとの白山眼鏡店オリジナルの「DECO」は、1992年12月にリリースされたもので、 現行モデルは、オリジナルに比べやや細身にリデザインされ、 飾り金具もモデルチェンジして復刻した。このDEUSの別注カラーは、フレーム、金具もマット仕上げで、 統一感がある上質な仕上がりになっています。 日本国内では数量限定でデウス・エクス・マキナ原宿店限定発売 DEUS EX MACHINA HARAJUKU 渋谷区神宮前3-29-5 TEL03-5413-3949 11:30am-8pm Now on Sale DECO 価格¥40.000- 税込み¥43.200-
