Lizzy is wearing a modern round shape called “Unsu”, made by our friends at Kata Eyewear. Although stylish and femininely styled, we love the sturdy thick shape of the rims and the detailed engraving into the acetate. Its silver bridge and hinges discreetly featuring signature triangles and the KATA insignia metal caps on temple tips, truly make this a sophisticated panto frame.
At its core, KATA, a choreographed pattern of masterful movements used in the martial arts, is striking in pose and precision. A mysterious form of self-discipline, upholding perfect form in shape and flow. Taking inspiration from the Japanese practice of Karate, KATA Eyewear collection is the manifestation of art and movement in eyewear design. The launch collection of KATA Eyewear brings a new vision to eyewear, unlocking new techniques in fluidity and style.
Kata, since first introduced in the mid 90’s, is a Japanese collection designed around four fundamental pillars – simplicity, innovation, responsibility and authenticity, as it explores form, finish and material over adornment. Kata has been re-launch by Design Gallery with an initial men’s collection in early 2018. Established in 2014 as a division of Match Eyewear, Design Gallery is a manufacturer and distributor of premium designer eyewear, serving the high end optical and boutique market. With designer eyewear increasingly recognized as a staple in everyone’s accessory wardrobe, the appeal to provide value in terms of style, quality in manufacture and originality of design became a goal of Match Eyewear.
