Music icon Daniel Johns is a longtime friend of Gareth Moody – the Ksubi co-founder and creative mastermind behind Australia’s Chronicles of Never. So, it makes perfect sense – given Moody’s rock style and Johns’ penchant for dark romance – the two have come together for an official Chronicles of Never X Daniel Johns eyewear collection.
Cut from high grade titanium and Japanese acetate, the range was developed in conjunction with I Lab. Each frame underwent a polishing process of more than 150 hours, achieving a one-of-a-kind look for each piece. Stylistically, the symbiosis of music and fashion inspired the modernist frames.
“Gareth and I discussed the fusion of music and fashion numerous times in the lead up to the collaboration,” says Johns.
The sombre colour palette is ultra minimal – black, anthracite or dark brown – colours that go with everything. And the 9-piece collection boasts a variety of silhouettes: from retro-inspired round lenses to the more squared and sharp edged.
