As if Epøkhe’s lineup of sun safety artifacts wasn’t ridiculously stacked already, they’ve added the ever-so-sharp Trinity frames.
A collision of anarchism and psychedelic cyberspace with a touch of glam. Trinity is an unapologetic design brimming with enigmatic depictions of a neo-noir genre. Infused with a cyberpunk attitude, these sleek curvaceous frames incorporate dynamic lines built for speed. Eight base curvature lens. Unrestrictive peripheral vision. Italian made and unisex friendly and just straight slick. But that’s enough of the formal marketing points.
“Beware, these glasses are powerful,” writes professional free surfer, musician, tap dancer, and involved artist of this very collab, Jaleesa Vincent. “A medieval, bat out of hell crucifix to create the precious side ornaments. A sprinkle of diamanté’s because I can. Alluring, crystal and black. I can see you walk to the beat of ‘Eye of the tiger’. The past and future brought to you in the present. Wear Trinity like a piece of armour.”
I know what you’re thinking, ‘cause right now I’m thinking the same thing. Actually, I’ve been thinking it ever since I got here: what if Laurence Fishburne was standing right in front of me, right now? He’s got on a leather duster. He’s wearing the smallest pair of Epøkhe Xoa’s you’ve ever seen. His retinas are only barely covered. In one hand, he’s holding a pair of Maui Jim-knockoff shades you only find in abundance on those spinning glasses racks in every dodgy service station. In his other hand, he’s holding the Trinity. He’s going on and on about showing you some door that only you can walk through and some rabbit hole and how good he is at kung fu. He’s getting a bit rambly so you grab the Trinity’s and get on with it. He leans in and says: You think those are glasses you’re wearing? That’s right, time to unplug.
Unfortunately, no one can be told what the Trinity is. You’ll have to see it for yourself…
