Avant-garde designer Maison Martin Margiela and the luxe Cutler & Gross team up on their first ever eyewear line. Expressing its creativity through recycling, transformation and reinterpretation, Maison Martin Margiela have teamed up with Graham Cutler and Tony Gross' brand who founded in 1969 have since pioneered eyewear as we know it today. Together they will be launching 'Line 8' – the eyewear collection - Naturally born with ‘Incognito’: one-lens sunglasses for both eyes in the shape of a horizontal stripe crossing the face. With ‘8’, the Maison offers a new context for eyewear through a simple yet radical expression. The first collection is made of two lines: ‘Anatomic’ – an enlarged rounded shape enveloping the face to protect the full visual field and ‘Wrong Size’ – a geometric play on lenses seemingly ill-fitting the frame.
