For its Fall/Winter 2019 optical campaign, KOMONO explores the theme of the double and undoes the notion of a fixed identity
The campaign consists of a series of double portraits with each image being an almost exact replica of the other, creating a hybrid body of work which references a more complex reality.
Unexpected contrasts of visual details are characteristic of both the acetate and metal series, and open up the collection to multiple readings. Introducing Komono’s most slender frames to date, the Slim series is a reconstructed copy of some of the brand’s most celebrated styles, suited for smaller faces. Meanwhile, the inclusion of feverish colours such as an iridescent Dreamy, a double-layered Thunder and a dark-pitched Midnight blue adds for an unusual tension.
Distinguished by a progressive approach to form, construction and surface, the Komono Fall/Winter 2019 optical collection is its most substantial yet.
