PUYI VIBES VOL. 10
EQUE.M: “EYEWEAR DESIGN AS SELF-EXPRESSION”
Famous in the eyewear industry for his unique designs, EQUE.M also stands out as founder of two luxury eyewear brands, the eponymous EQUE.M and TRESBIND. Both showcase products handmade in the Japanese city of Sabae, Fukui by local artisans, using exceptional Japanese materials and meticulous craftsmanship.
As a Japanese designer raised in the US and currently living in Orange County, California, he has been influenced and inspired by Western culture. Dauntless, innovative and a perfectionist, his passion for eyewear design was sparked at the tender age of 19, nurtured by the beautiful California sunshine and its market for sunglasses.
