Most renowned for its performance-focused eyewear, District Vision’s love of Japanese eyewear and craftsmanship has seen it work with experts across Japan to create unique innovative glasses that not only look the part, but are protective too.

Now paying homage to the country it draws inspiration from, District Vision launches a short-film entitled The Game of Being, in which it explores the beauty in ordinary moments and the psychological freedom accessible if you’re willing to see past ambition and competitive desires.

Written by District Vision and directed by Yusuke Ishida, the film features meditative moments with one of the brand’s engineers in its eyewear factory in Fukui, a trail runner outside of Tokyo, a monk at the Enryakuji monastery on Mount Hiei, and a young girl playing in the forest in Fujino.

In an ongoing effort to bridge the worlds of movement and mindfulness, Los Angeles-based District Vision continues to highlight itself as a unique label within the activewear sphere. Founded in 2016 by Max Vallot and Tom Daly, the brand has blended its experience in high fashion with the pair’s shared passions of both running and meditation.

You can view the film above and here, and find out more about District Vision via its online webstore.
