I recently designed a series of sunglasses inspired by exaggerated make-up on Chinese opera performer's face; each color has a different meaning. They are used to symbolize a character's role, fate, and illustrate the character's emotional state.
The brand draws inspiration from cultural heritage; ornaments that emphasize our diversity, the values, and the research on metaphors, whose findings echos the sustained search for foundations in the great areas of human endeavor.
In this particular instance associated with the make up style of Chinese opera.
It is not just vanity, the most of the women express themselves trough their clothing, accessories and their uniqueness and creative spirit.
Inspiration and colors for these designs come from the red mask “Ching” that indicates prosperity, blue mask “Tan” that indicates neutrality and green mask “Chʼou” which signifies impulse and energy.
