Chronicles of Never is an Australian fashion label, founded by Sydney-born designer Gareth Moody in 2005, after he decided to part company with streetwear label Ksubi, which he co-founded in 2000 with George Garrow and Dan Single. Originally starting out as a unisex jewellery label thanks to a time-dependent ‘non-compete’ clause in his Ksubi contract, Chronicles of Never has since expanded to include dedicated menswear and womenswear lines, and a highly successful eyewear collection.
The 2012 eyewear collection continues in the same vein as previous collections, with the use of bold shapes and a variety of dark and earthy tones, including rust red, khaki, grey, brown and of course black in shiny and matt finishes. Designed by Gareth Moody in collaboration with Graz Eyewear, The bold, thick-framed shades are both retro and futuristic – strong geometric shapes with the odd softened edge.
All the frames in the top quality eyewear collection are made from the finest acetate with French hinges and scratch resistant nylon lenses that offer UV protection as certified by the AU/NZ standards board. Stand out frames from the collection include the ‘A Voice from the Wood’ frames in Pearl, with their this square shape; the ‘Earth Bears Metal’ style in tortoise for their retro round frames; and the ‘Origin of Vastis’ shades in amber, with a subtle and thick cat-eye style frames.
So without any further ado, we present the 2012 eyewear collection fro Chronicles of Never shot by renowned photographer Mick Bruzzese…Enjoy!
