The Gentle Monster x Yoyo Cao Collaboration Has Landed

After months of planning and hush-hush, the secret is out of the bag. Here, take a closer look at the design and the inspiration behind it all.

Several months ago, I was approached by Gentle Monster to collaborate on a special design to mark the opening of their store at Marina Bay Sands. Needless to say, I was completely ecstatic. Both as an unapologetic addict when it comes to sunglasses and as a fan of the brand. It took us a few trials – and of course, months of having to keep things under wraps – but at last, here it is!

My starting point was red. Simply red. It is a colour that I never tire of and a colour that I identify with. From there, the design expanded to gold. With the palette settled, the silhouette and the technical aspect came next. I always carry sunglasses with me, so it was important that the piece I designed was lightweight.

I also wanted it to be a balance of practicality and unconventionality. Something you can wear every day, but still with a twist. Minimal and easy, but still sharp and chic. Finally, I wanted them to be smaller than most sunglasses. Not only would that make the piece little more compact, it also gives the option of wearing it a little down the nose, which is a look I really like.

Alas, the sunglasses were born. I feel so blessed to be able to work together with Gentle Monster on it, and for the freedom that they gave me to create exactly what I wanted. Thank you so much to the crew at Gentle Monster, from the bottom of my heart. Now, you guys. I cannot wait to hear what all of you think about the design.

The sunglasses are available exclusively in Singapore. Let’s see the world through rouge-tinted glasses, shall we?
