Kick Eyes Glasses

Kick Eyes are back and kickier than ever. We first brought you the smash-hit toy glasses by Nono Muaks—a fashion-design collective between Brussels and Beijing—last year. We rather naively assumed that lightning bolts and heart shapes were about all one could punch out of felt. But no. As it turns out, you can punch pretty much any silhouette into felt. From the new Kick Eyes collection, we present to you: cat eyes, leopard prints, diamonds and clubs, and laser beams. Because really, who wants lenses when there's laser-cut technology?

Details: 100% laser-cut industrial felt, durable and foldable, unisex, one size fits all. Dimensions: 5.75" wide, 5" deep. As always, we're happy to tweet pictures of you and your purchase.
