Do you know who you are? You can be anyone you want to be as hiding your face with my headpieces. Moreover, it’s possible to avoid from any situation that you are keen to avoid as you hide behind other people- Princess Anastasia, Audrey Hepburn, Grace Kelly and Lady Gaga.

Vintage-inspired eyewear isn't a new concept by any stretch of the imagination, but Gentlemonster reworks the classics with an emphasis on innovation. Buddy Holly specs and brow line glasses take on a modern edge with sleek angles whereas changeable faceplates give Wayfarers a much-needed update. Frames from the '50s to '70s serve as points of reference, but strictly in a design sense.

Based in Seoul, South Korea, Gentlemonster got its start like many other independent eyewear makers: Kim is an avid collector of vintage glasses. "I started to make eyewear because I know about glasses better than other accessories," he says. Previously, Kim worked for an English education company, launching the label in February 2011.

Right after graduating in 2008 three friends; Lee myeong Sin, Whan Hyun Ji and Park Jin Sun founded Low Classic to make 'realistic' clothes inspired by their home town Seoul. Practicality has an important role in their designs as everything is incredibly wearable and functional. Like the pen, phone and card compartments that are usually on the inside of a bag are put on the outside where you can easily reach them.
