Mother Earth

 A Tribute to Mother Earth - See the sunglasses collection

The days fly by. We are all busy. There are goals to be achieved – things that must be done – demands that must be met. Fortunately, that is the way of life, because it is great with a fast pace, progress and results in our daily life.

However, it is also important to have balance in your life. To know your limits, to cultivate peace and good vibes, to regain your strength and find the core of the good life.

Therefore, the spring and summer collection from monkeyglasses® is a tribute to Mother Earth. We have gathered inspiration from the crystals and minerals found in Earth’s interior and have transformed these powerful energies and magical iridescences into designs that blends bright colours with horn and combines milky pastels with metal frames in dulcet tones. The result is a sensuous, harmonious design in hues of orange, brown, green and blue.

As far as we can trace history, crystals, minerals and gems from Earth’s core have always fascinated humans. Kings and queens, liege lords, princes and princesses have worn them as jewelry, in fairytales, they have magical powers, and our ancestors worshipped shining crystals and magical stones. In addition, when they discovered that you could extract pigment out of stones by pulverizing them it opened a new world of cave painting, medicine and body art.

The SS16 collection is our tribute to Mother Earth.
