Have you heard of Gentle Monster?
It’s a Korean sunglasses brand that I’ve been following recently. I first picked up on them from a design website which was showcasing their AMAZING concept store designs.
As you can see, they’re known for being extremely innovative, always refreshing their store interiors and turning them into strange spaces!
I LOVE IT. Their flagship store would definitely be on my must see hit list!
More importantly, let’s talk about their actual products. Their sunglasses are extremely popular with big name Korean celebrities.
Jun Ji Hyun wore a lot of Gentle Monster sunnies in ‘My Love From Another Star.’
Here’s Krystal sporting a pair for an Etude House campaign!
Sadly, I had not been able to see this brand myself. That is until recently! Because Harvey Nichols in London is now stocking GENTLE MONSTER!
I’ve been coveting a pair of these for so SO long. I kid you not, I made a mad dash to try them on for myself.
I plumped for the beautiful Absente Black Wayfarer for £161. Admittedly it’s not cheap but it is really well made and the style is super classic. It has the right amount of sass and classyness that I’m looking for!
I don’t know why but I prefer sunglasses that cover my eyebrows and these do the job well.
I think because this is an Asian brand, it caters to my flatter face and fits perfectly, so in future I will definitely be heading to Gentle Monster for all my sunglasses needs.
