AM Eyewear has launched the Holidazed collection, which boasts all Italian components: Mazzucchelli acetate frames, Techno fixed hinges and Fotomecchanica logo inlays. Logo-etched lenses are from Zeiss.
Simon Ponnusamy, AM’s designer/director told mivision his eyewear designs are inspired by fashion, music and community, and every piece is named after family and friends. Pictured here is the Jon Jon. “It’s named after Anthony Lue, presenter for fashion TV, jet-setter, all around nice guy and instantly recognisable as the man behind the mic for anyone who has spent time backstage at fashion week,” said Ponnusamy.
The Jon Jon is oversized without being overstated, and bold yet delicate and elegant. “Although it’s a feminine shape, funnily enough it was Jon Jon who came to mind when designing this frame because like him, it would be most comfortable back-stage at fashion week and the glamorous feel of this frame reminded my of the way he leads his life,” he said.
