Another brand of eyewear fabricated using 3D printing made its debut on the market. Named MONTSERRAT New York Eyewear, this collection is the result of a collaboration between MONTSERRAT New York and King Children. A very timely launch as we gradually reopen our summer clothes cupboards.
MONTSERRAT New York fuses the two worlds of founder and designer Carolina Cordón-Bouzán: New York City and Barcelona. Every design is created not only to evoke the unique spirit of each location, but also to transition effortlessly between the events that come with bustling city life and weekend escapes.
King Children is a technology platform which was created to rethink how we design, develop and produce the products we buy. It was built from the ground up with the vision of a zero-waste supply chain, with beautiful and custom-made products. The company first appeared on our radar in 2018 when it unveiled 3D printed customized eyewear.
King Children’s expertise in 3D printing has been pivotal in this product development. The teams leveraged Selective Laser Sintering and polyamide powder to deliver ultimate freedom in design with an incredible and highly desired matte finish.
“For this collection we wanted to create sunglasses that capture their DNA of effortless luxury while taking advantage of King Children's technology in new ways. Through partnering with forward looking brands like MONTSERRAT New York and powering their eyewear offerings we are able to meaningfully move the eyewear industry towards a zero-waste future”, Leslie Muller, Head of Design at King Children states.
MONTSERRAT New York's first eyewear collection will launch with two key styles, each available in three colorways: A classic cat eye style – The Capri, and a rounded square style, a nod to the 90's – The Paros. The gold metal accents seen on both styles mimic that of MONTSERRAT's best-selling jewelry. The case includes a cleaning cloth printed with the brand's eye-catching logo; no pun intended. Each detail of the collection was thoughtfully crafted through the MONTSERRAT New York lens, the partners say.
“Both of our teams worked together to fuse the architectural notes often seen in our jewelry and the effortlessness felt wearing our clothing into sunglass styles that fit perfectly into the brand and were developed without creating material waste." Gayle Yelon, Co-Founder at MONTSERRAT New York.
