At Glasses Direct we are always looking out for fun and innovative eyewear as well as brand new developments within the optical industry. We were very excited when we heard about Japanese eyewear producer JIN’s having recently launched a project called Architect’s Series in which 12 well-known Japanese architects were commissioned to design their own interpretation of eyewear. This collection is extremely impressive, with several eye-catching creations, featuring Sun Grass by Yuko Nagayama, wrap-around glasses from Kumiko Inui and the hand-drawn “Doodle” frames from Sou Fujimoto (all below).

We would love to hear about other cool launches or events going on, so feel free to tell us if you know of any!
