Jerry Lorenzo To Release First Eyewear Collection

After collaborating with Ermenegildo Zenga earlier this year, Jerry Lorenzo is now back with another collaborative effort. This time however, the Fear Of God designer announced this will be his first eyewear collection, and it’s with Barton Perreira. Inspired by the Barton Perreira optical glasses Jerry Lorenzo wears daily, the new eyewear frame builds on the tool that aids the designer in his everyday design process. Coming in four different earth-tone colorways the frames will be available for purchase on the Fear Of God website June 19th for $510 USD. About the collaboration Jerry said,

“This is a personal project for me as I’ve been looking through Barton Perreira frames since the inception of Fear of God seven years ago. How I see the world determines how I approach design with the purpose of redefining how the world sees me. Barton Perreira’s optical glasses are designed in a way that allows a beautiful frame to take a back seat to the subject who’s wearing them. I love this approach to design, where the focus is on the subject and not the physical proposition. I wanted to bring a sense of modernity to the classic frame that I’ve been wearing for the past seven years. Through Fear of God’s design filter and Barton Perreira’s craftsmanship and perspective, I’m super humbled to present a modern optical frame that also feels like the perfect vintage sunglass.”
