Introducing the latest Gentle Monster eyewear collection 2019, titled “13”.

Gentle Monster Eyewear Collection 2019

The weirder, the better: Seoul-based eyewear brand unveils a futuristic and avant-garde collection for 2019.

The Gentle Monster Eyeware Collection 2019 stays true to the brand’s quirky and bizarre aesthetic. The “13” campaign explores the existence of a 13th month, portraying an imbalance in nature due to environmental changes that cause abnormal behavior in human beings and animals.

The collection features 18 new styles, ranging from classic to eccentric designs, featuring bright neon-colored lenses and frames. The collection is in stores now.

Heyman produced 3 short episodes for the “13” collection. The series depicts a future of abnormality triggered by the moon shifting out of its place and axis, creating a 13th month. This throws off nature’s delicate balance on Earth, and humans turn to technology as a means for salvation. Check out the series on Gentle Monster’s Instagram.
