“The Cinderella eyewear collection produced by Magic Touch Japan was designed by Mikiya Kobayashi with the help of art director Ryota Sakae.
The designs consist of brightly colored shades that look more like visors than sunnies. They sport subtle geometric patterning, which only adds to a future-forward look. The fact that they are worn by milky-white models only makes these designs more striking.
Epitomizing the vogue look, these bold pieces mix art and fashion. With no frames and a smooth, minimalistic design, these glasses will make anyone look high-fashion, stage-ready and performance-perfect. If you have a vibrant personality and are looking for some chic shades to back this up, this Cinderella collection by Magic Touch Japan is the perfect solution.” -Vivian Lau
