CONCEPT

Taylor with Respect

The original eyewear brand which will be launched in 2017AW by Satoshi Waki who had designed "JAPONISM" eyewear brand for about 12 years. The brand name "Taylor" originates in the word "tailor". We have the subject that the eyewear will fit the head nicely and allows a wearer to feel comfortable wear as if a tailor make well-fitting clothes. The collection will be well-designed all made in Japan.

FEATURES

001.

S-LINED TEMPLES

TAYLOR WITH RESPECT suggests the S-lined temples flexibly curved. The in-curved temples reduce the space between your temple and the frame, which creates the refined design of the frame. The form of R is also designed for being difficult to damage.

002.

BRAND INITIAL-DESIGNED END PIECES

Capable of bearing a structure load. The heavy load is applied to end pieces from top and bottom and left and right because they connects the front part and temples of the frame. The brand initial "T" is designed for dispersing the load. The supporting point which temples apply the load to is shifted slightly inside to disperse the load.

THE FASTENING SCREW MADE BY THE INTERGRATED PRESS

The fastening screw and the end pieces are manufactured by the integrated press to prevent it from damage caused by the long-term use. The integrated press improves the precision of parts and hold the strength, and it will be more smooth for parts to be replaced.

003.

ORIGINAL TITANIUM PADS

Each left and right pad has the different form, and they are made of titanium.The screw holes are integrated into the pads, so that the pads are strong to the damage. A brand initial letter is carved into the pad.

004.

NATURALLY STREAMLINED FORM FROM THE FRONT OF THE FRAME TO TEMPLES

The frames are well tailored when they are particular about the details. The upper part for the front is cut in order to match a tilt of the temples

005.

ORIGINAL SPARTA HINGE

Stress-free and smooth open and close of the temples. One-barrel and two-barrel are manufactured severally for a general hinge. As a result, slightly shift might be caused when the parts are attached. But the sparta hinge is cut from an original metal material by the same three-dimensional data. Consequently, the hinge is less subject to deviations and extremely precise when it's cut. The sparta hinge is capable of more smooth open and close of the temples and less loads, and high durability.

006.

TEMPLE END

The temple end is designed simply and the brand initial letter is carved. The temple end is also designed to be naturally integrated with the streamline of the temples. We take the weight balance of the temple ends with the front into account, so that lightness of the frame seems to be realized.

A serial number is stamped on the temple end.
