When we first saw the work of Han Kjobenhavn, we were knocked out by the effortless Scandinavian style of these dedicated Copenhagen residents.
Danish design majors on what's functional and pure, from the furniture and architecture of Arne Jacobsen to Georg Jensen cutlery.
Indeed, Jannik Davidsen, co-founder of Han Kjobenhavn in 2008, says eyewear was their first passion because "of our interest in furniture design and architecture; functional objects that can become iconic and timeless if you do it well enough".
Their approach has won global fans, with a new boutique in Paris.
Our picks of the latest drop from Han Kjobenhavn:
Taking its aesthetic influences from 1970's welding glasses these Petrolium Union Sunglasses are a powerful vintage statement. Hinges are Japanese and nickel free while dark grey Carl Zeiss CR-39 lenses protect against both UVA and UVB rays. Stealth, in a pair of sunglasses.
On-trend this season, and suitable for prescription lenses, circular tortoiseshell frames are in Italian acetate, while Carl Zeiss CR-39 lenses are fitted to an easily detachable wire-framed clip, providing eye protection in compliance with EU directives. Slick, and effortlessly stylish.
A signature Han Kjøbenhavn silhouette that's already a classic, finished here in their latest 'mash' green acetate with subtle feature transparent green arms and Japanese-made nickel free hinges. Carl Zeiss CR-39 lenses provide UVA and UVB protection. Great Danes? Certainly.
