Gentle Monster

Standing out as one of the standout names in the sunglasses and optical glasses realm in recent years, Gentle Monster was founded by Hankook Kim in Seoul back in 2011. The South Korean name crafted “perfect frames” rooted in philosophies in the purity of art, culture redesign and pioneering technology. Reimagining classic shapes with innovation and artistry in mind, Gentle Monster has created a name for itself in the fashion industry. With a $60 million USD investment for a seven percent stake in 2017 from LVMH, Gentle Monster now has 41 directly operated stores worldwide.
