In an agreement with Fabien Baron, renowned creative director and designer, Modo introduces Fabien Baron Eyewear. Emphasizing the same aesthetic values that Baron applies to all his projects—modernity, bold simplicity and sophistication, the eyewear collection consists of 14 sunglasses, all hand-crafted in Japan from block acetate or block titanium. Colors range from black, dark red, pine, green, acorn, dark tortoise, havana, and milky gray in the acetates to gold, silver, dark gunmetal, brown and matte black in the titanium. All lenses are CR-39 polarized with an AR coating. 

“As objects, sunglasses have always been interesting to me. I thought if anything would be a challenge, it would be something as organic as sunglasses. And I wanted something classic, not overt or covered in logos,” says Fabien Baron. Modo adds, “Baron worked meticulously to ensure the fit and function of his collection (both lightweight and strong), coordinating and enhancing the understated elegance of the design.”  

Our next spotlight will feature the Fabien Baron.
