Amsterdam-based brand Daily Paper and Belgian accessory brand KOMONO have come together for the duo’s first-ever collaboration, introducing a line of contemporary Kenyatta sunglasses.

These unisex sunglasses are retrofuturistic in their design and come in a range of fitting colors include black, tortoise and “Racing Red.” The frame is squared with rounded edges, housing the large, “Dark Smoke”-tinted and 100 percent UV protected ovular lenses inside, while the arms are equally chunky and angular in approach.

Silver-plated “DAILYPAPER” branding in either silver or a gold-tone graces both arms, while on the inside of the arm you’ll find information that details where they were made.

To celebrate the release of the inaugural eyewear collaboration, Daily Paper and KOMONO’s campaign reinterprets the glasses through Daily Paper’s futuristic lens. It delivers a study of highly-contrasted, boldly-colored photographs that pack plenty shadows and sharp lines.

The collaborative collection of sunglasses drops on May 15 for $160 apiece at both brands’ storefronts, on the Daily Paper and KOMONO websites, and select retailers worldwide. Check out the three Kenyatta sunglasses in the galleries above.

In other news, Sun Buddies has opened its archives to bring back iconic sunglasses.
