Hang on, I Got a Hair in My Eye(glasses)
July 1st, 2011
I find it amazing that designers and visionaries in the industry are so abreast not only with fashion trends, but also with the shifting attitudes of consumers.
As a response to today’s quick-to-dispose society, Azusa Murakami and Alexander Groves have come up with a stylish and innovative collection of glasses and spectacles that are made from… human hair.
Designers Murakami and Groves, who are both graduates from the Royal College of Art, collaborated to come up with this collection of fashion-forward eyewear that is 100% biodegradable and 101% wearable.
I’m not sure how a lot of people would feel, wearing someone’s hair on their spectacles, but these are actually bound together and coated with resin for good measure so it won’t even feel like you’re wearing hair, at least.
The collection is currently being displayed in London as part of the graduate exhibition of the Royal College of Arts until July 3. If you’re in the area, drop by to catch a glimpse of these hair-ific creations!
