THE STORY

I was in Paris when the idea for Memento Mori Sunglasses came to me. For a long time, I had dreamed of exploring the catacombs, reading countless articles about these ancient corridors beneath the City of Light’s streets and cathedrals. Here was something I could do to feed my hunger for frights and scares, something I could do to get a good story, something I could do to shoot some adrenaline into my veins. Down there, though, I felt something I had not fully expected: inspiration. I wanted to share my experience of the catacombs with everyone!

 

Looking at the skulls around me, I saw in them personalities. Each skull was different, shaped unlike any other skull. Although they shared death in common, they stood out from one another starkly and completely. With Memento Mori Sunglasses, I am bringing that stark, complete uniqueness up from the world below and hand-delivering to you – in the form of specially crafted, personalized eyewear both durable and stylish.

THE PROCESS

 

DRAWING

To insure the uniqueness of my eyewear, each design begins as a sketch on a clean piece of paper.

 

 

PROTOTYPING

Once the design is complete. I transfer the work to a 3D model and create a prototype.

 

 

Pattern

To create the acetate I return to the drawing table and begin drawing the pattern. Once complete I digitally render the acetate slab to be created.

 

 

FACTORY

Once the pattern is complete it is sent to to Hong Kong, where the factory creates each pair of Memento Mori Sunglasses by hand. When the frame is completed, I personally approve every frame to insure it meets my standards before I finally pass it on to you.
