Early in 2020, just months before the pandemic began restricting travel, AM Eyewear founder Simon Ponnusamy embarked on a pilgrimage through India. Immersing in the majesty of Cochin Carnival, alive with dazzling dancers in colourful costumes, and exploring sprawling marketplaces abundant in rare gems and divine crystals, he was moved by every facet of the experience.
A year and a half later, those memories have come to life in AM Eyewear’s new collection, which boasts a new range of angles, shapes, facets and colours, from opaque crystals to deep minerals, inspired by emerald, jade, amethyst, rose quartz, and sapphire hues, some with embellishments reminiscent of mineral marbling and gold flakes. Kochi also introduces a new range of coloured lenses to help shift perspectives.
“Now more than ever, it’s important to remember and celebrate the majestic beauty of our world,” says Simon. “Precious gems and crystals have been used to enhance positivity and keep focus on the right things. AM Eyewear’s new collection is distinctly avant-garde, designed to reinforce that same positive mindset in anyone who wears them,” he says.
