FOR summer, ic! berlin teamed up with their former housekeeping intern turned eyewear wunderkind Jeremy Tarian.
Since his internship at ic! berlin in 2009, Tarian has gone on to study at Parsons School of Design in New York and launched his own label, tarian, in 2012. Now he’s back where it all started, for ic! berlin x tarian.
The collaborative collection offers two correction frames and one sunglass. It also features five custom acetate laminates curated by Tarian and named for some of his cruelty-free foods: A for asparagus, B for beetrot, C for courgette, D for dragon fruit and E for echallot.
For the new season, ic! berlin also has another range called Urban. Inspired by the brutalist architecture movement of the mid 20th century, it is described as a “3D printed summer vacation for your face”.
With Urban, the eyewear brand explores ideas of perspective and contradiction with new hybrid constructions, 3D printed textures and new colours such as brutal blue and powdered beige.
