My first inspiration when seeing these sunglasses was a doll relaxing next to Tour Eiffel, because of the resemblance of the sunglasses’s material with the famous monument. The doll was wearing her sunglasses, listening to music, smiling at her thoughts… These particular glasses could “travel” anyone who wears them to their memories, their pleasant moments of the past or the optimistic images of their future.
But then, I found my mind strolling to memories that one would like to forget…
I came across a photo of a Korean girl carrying a boy during the second world war. What I did was to place their faces next to vibrant colors, in another environment so that I could narrowly imagine them among toys and moments of pleasure that every child should experience. Then I realize that we should seek more often of “sunglasses” that can transform the dark to bright sun without avoiding the rawness of the reality. Or even more, not to forget to see deeper.
May your sunglasses make you see the sun even in the dark.
