Blake Kuwahara

Blake Kuwahara is a trained Optometrist, however, his passion for aesthetics led him to begin designing eyewear for a number of collections. In 2014 he launched his personal eyewear collection. He explains his collection began to fulfill his own design needs and that of his circle of friends, who live in a very visual world: artists, filmmakers, architects, fashionistas and designers of all sorts. 

It all began after a photographer friend expressed her desire for a stylish but understated pair of glasses and was having much trouble finding something that suited her look. She indicated she would like a pair like the prototype he was wearing. 

He explains this was the inspiration for his signature brand - a collection of frames that are a mashup of his colliding aesthetics, with special attention to sculpting and tactility. 

“Artful, but wearable”
