Accessories brand KOMONO teams up with luxury denim label Eat Dust in the creation of a capsule eyewear collection, launching at the beginning of May 2021. Both hailing from Antwerp, Belgium, they found a common ground in their rebellious attitude and uncompromising vision on quality and innovative design. The capsule consists of three styles, Hioco 73, Robertus 67 and Walther 76 and is inspired by protection wear. They have a timeless and classic feel to them, albeit with a contemporary twist due to their chunky and sturdy character. The collection is handmade in Italy from the finest responsibly sourced acetate. The color palette reflects this move towards durability and quality research with an extremely rich range of hues, from intense tortoises and soft bone colors to sandy oranges and smokey greys.
The collection will retail at €149 and be available at the KOMONO flagship stores, Eat Dust flagship store Antwerp, komono.com, eatdustclothing.com and at selected retailers.
About Eat Dust
With deep roots in skateboarding, punk rock and underground subculture, Eat Dust was founded in 2010 by longtime friends Keith Hioco & Rob Harmsen. Their mutual love for denim brought them together to create a brand that is rebellious and unique. An uncompromising vision, merging classic menswear with a wide range of influences, from workwear and military wear to motorcycling gear. Eat Dust was founded on the pursuit of quality and originality. All production and sourcing is retained in Europe, simply because craftsmanship, integrity and proximity matter.
Girls of Dust was launched in 2017 by Aline Walther, Keith’s partner in crime since their days at the Royal Academy of Fine Arts. Taking similar inspirations, but transforming them into beautifully crafted and contemporary womenswear, Girls of Dust is all about constructing a timeless and durable wardrobe. A passion for the past combined with a strong focus on the future, standing firmly behind the same principles as its male counterpart. Eclectic, persistent and truly original, Girls of Dust aims to be as strong as the women that wear it.
