Uglybell – The Metropolis Collection SS17 Lookbook.
– Uglybell X He m n oid –
Once used to describe the mother city of a colony, now on a broader term characterizes a set of interconnected cities, clustered around a major urban center. Urban is the base of our inspiration for our Metropolis Collection. Forged by the busy urban environment that we dwell in, we created a series of sunglasses, using a unique hand-crafted burn technique on an acetate frame.
Heavily inspired by the architectural movements of brutalism and post-modernism, industrial forms and unprocessed, primitive lines, every piece of the Metropolis Collection is an ode to urban street style. Borrowing elements from different cultures and schools, and bypassing regular gender norms, lines blur and collide, with the final product projecting a genderless, androgynous style. Striking by design.
