KOMONO x Antwerp Fashion Department

Collaboration

We are proud to introduce our collaboration with the fashion department of the Royal Academy of Fine Arts Antwerp. An incubator for new talent and innovative design, the Academy is one of the most influential voices in fashion today. Out of our mutual interest for experimentation and innovation, we present a capsule created by these four master students. Discover their capsule eyewear collection linked to their personal work for SHOW2019.
