The Sospiri® collection represents Ottica Veneta’s signature luxury line of optical and sun wear. From the mountains of northeastern Italy’s Veneto region, Sospiri was inspired as a tribute to the Venetian maestros of old and those craftsmen who follow the same artisanal methods today. Through a rich intertwining of elegance and innovation, Sospiri frames are defined by their superior use of Swarovski crystals, light metals, Italian acetates and unique artistic embellishments.

In search of an eyewear brand that parallels an elite lifestyle while paying tribute to the world’s most innovative and exclusive machines, Tyler Henri was driven to create a purist, exotic lifestyle brand…a brand which flows harmoniously with the vanity fair of indulging in hyper-cars, super-yachts, and jumbo jets. Out of that innovation, T HENRI was born, a new ultra-chic brand offering the world’s most luxurious and meticulously-crafted eyepieces.
Having worn and studied eyepieces designed by the world’s most talented independent brands, Tyler went to the epicenter of micro-production eyewear—Sabae, Japan. With his vision and artistic direction, a scrutinizing three-year process began. It’s sole mission: to assemble the most exclusive luxury eyewear collection available in the world, the Monaco Series.
Thus born, T HENRI is an ultra-luxury, micro-production eyewear brand inspired by the world’s most prized possessions.
Kuwahara’s design inspiration was initially driven by aesthetics and a desire to fulfill his own design needs and those in his social circle. “Like many people I know, I straddle both the artistic and business worlds. Many of us struggled to find suitable eyewear, hence the prototype I designed for myself,” says Kuwahara, who wore the prototype one evening while dining with a photographer friend. The friend pointed out that she was seeking a pair of eyewear that was stylish but understated with an edge, just like the pair he was wearing. “From that dinner conversation came the inspiration and proverbial push for launching my signature brand—a collection of frames that are a mash-up of my colliding aesthetics with special attention paid to sculpting and tactility. They are artful but wearable.” Each frame in the Blake Kuwahara Eyewear Collection has a unique inner silhouette encased in an unexpectedly fresh outer shape. Through a laborious, handmade process, the seamless fusion of two separate frames and the juxtaposition of contrasting form and color create a design tension that is thoroughly modern yet comfortably familiar.
