Randolph Partners with Iconic Japanese Designer, Junya Watanabe, for Brand Collaboration
For the first time in Randolph’s 50-year history, our timeless, handcrafted made in USA eyewear has entered the lifestyle market through a partnership with renowned Japanese designer, Junya Watanabe. Not only will you see Randolph styles in Junya Watanabe’s MAN Spring-Summer 2022 fashion show but Junya has also designed a luxury chrome case for four hand-selected frames. The noteworthy collaboration has gained the attention of several fashion/lifestyle publications such as HIGHSNOBIETY and COMPLEX.
This Randolph x Junya Watanabe MAN exclusive collaboration launches with global lifestyle partners in early-February 2022.
Looks from Junya Watanabe's Spring-Summer 2022 Men's Collection
Junya Watanabe was first drawn to Randolph's American heritage, and as a former pattern cutter, he appreciates the craftsmanship and dedication to uncompromised quality. After selecting the Matte Chrome Aviator, 23k Gold Intruder, Gunmetal Concorde and 22k Rose Gold Amelia to be featured in his runway show, he began designing a limited-edition case for his four favorite silhouettes to be distributed exclusively in-store to top-tier boutiques around the globe.
Watanabe’s innovative use of materials and design aesthetic is exemplified in the hard, mirrored case that complements Randolph's iconic eyewear styles.
