Rigards x The Viridi Anne
Extraordinary sunglasses with detachable clip in grey/yellow
Expressive stainless steel glasses with special clip. Material debate about the past, present and future.
The Viridi Anne is an avant-garde fashion label that goes back to the Japanese designer Tomoaki Okaniwa. His creations dealt with questions of transience and the concept of time. The theme also manifests itself in the collaboration with Rigards: the triple nose bridge alludes to the temporal dimensions of past, present and future, which are sometimes perceived in sync, creating an evocative whole - after all, humans are capable of memory, of experiencing the here and now, and of imagination.
The frame has clear lenses without prescription, which can be replaced by an optician. It is handmade of surgical steel, only the nose bridge is made of 925 sterling silver - in order to adapt. The clip with the yellow glass and 100% UV protection is made of gray titanium, reminiscent of freshly laid asphalt and the heat of the city in the summer.
Like all models of Rigards, the glasses have no gender preference and are suitable for both men and women.

'eigensinnig wien' presents: Rigards Eyewear, non-conformist sunglasses from the studio of artist Ti Kwa.
A very unique aesthetic and quiet elegance are inscribed in the sunglasses of the avant-garde label from Hong Kong. In the handmade unique pieces, past and future manifest themselves into something enigmatic, mystical, which seems to be ahead of its time as well as referring to past eras in a nostalgic manner. Natural and organic-looking materials contribute to this aesthetic, which wants to remain inscrutable to a certain extent.
