In 1972, EYEVAN started with a concept of „eyewear as a fashion item“.
Among EYEVAN collections „EYEVAN CRAFT“ was represented what craftsmen around that time truly wanted to make using the highest technology available in those days. It is the „EYEVAN 7285“ launched in May 2013 that is reconstructed based on this series, taking over the aesthetics continuning at that time. When Optec Japan design team looks into hand-written drawings or precious archives kept in a warehouse, they find Japan’s distinguished technologies, creativity and enthusiasm of craftsmen in these days. „EYEVAN 7285“ is reconstructed based on those archives of „EYEVAN CRAFT“, disassembling parts and designs used at that time. We have updated details and altered the sizes to adjust segmentalized various fashion and created new shapes based on EYEVAN’s memory. „EYEVAN 7285“ is inspired by products and concepts of EYEVAN between when it was launched in 1972 and their global debut in 1985, taking over the philosophy of EYEVAN. That is why we decided to name the brand „EYEVAN 7285“ with respect.
