France を訪れた際、日常的にかけられていた fox type を、日本人にもっと取り入れてほしいと思い製作されたモデル。

1950年代に活躍したマリリン・モンローが映画の中でこの形の眼鏡をかけたから、「モンロー型」とも呼ばれます。  名前の通り、キツネを連想させる目尻が上がった形状のフレームデザインです。



When our designer visited France, he thought of making fox type glasses which were worn there on a daily basis to also be adopted in Japan.

Named after a popular actress in the 50s, Marylyn Monroe ーwho wore this glasses shape in her movie. Just like its name, the upward slanted outer corner of the frame design represents a fox eye.

The frame's width gives a cool and dignified impression to its wearer.

To make the best of hard celluloid character which took years to cure, we use the "no-core" method, by not inserting core in the temple part.





Celluloid eyeglass frames, well known for their rich and deep color, were the mainstream in eyewear industry with its nature of improving comfort by providing softer contact with users’ skin during the middle of the 20th century.

However, when it comes to the manufacturing process, celluloid is not suitable for mass production due to its high flammability that takes much time and effort to process.

Handing over the skilled craftsmanship for celluloid frames faces coming to an end as time goes by with mass production age. The designer, Fujiki Kumagai, was deeply concerned about this market fact as he has been in the fashion industry for long and it made him launched his eyewear brand "kearny" in 2013.

He named "kearny" after Kearny Street in San Francisco where he used to be nesting when every time he visited there for thrifting a few chunks of the week as a vintage clothing buyer and put a wish “crossing of history and culture” into the name. Celluloid parts are used for all the glasses he designs to maintain the craftsmanship that defined the generation in future ages.

He pays great respect to the designs that vividly colored each period and continues exploring his dedicated manufacturing that integrate what he sees with his eyes and things touched by his hands into the products.
