Gentle Monster Collaborate with Huawei on Smart Eyewear Collection
This August, Gentle Monster are launching a collection in collaboration with technology company Huawei which is set to introduce smart eyewear into the mainstream. Combining style with Huawei’s forward-thinking technology, the collaboration aims to make smart eyewear a desirable commodity.
Although smart eyewear has previously been developed this collection is one of the sleekest and thus most appealing to customers, leading Gentle Monster to predict the glasses will become an “essential tool of communication for a busy modern human”.
Wearers will be able to answer calls by tapping the temple of the glasses which have inbuilt microphones and speakers. By fusing fashion and technology, Gentle Monster have created a product that marries the aesthetic appeal of fashionable eyewear and the practicality of modern technology. Could this change our ways of seeing forever?
