New color will appear in “IM-101” series

Special Re-edition Model: IM-101

A new color will appear in the “IM-101” series, which has a graphic design-like clarity although arranged with the simple combination of a single line and two circles. The sunglasses, with their blue lenses and strong reflection of their inspiration from the 1980s original model, faithfully recreate the design at the time and are made of titanium for contemporary use that is lightweight, flexible, and durable.

On sale nationwide from Thursday, February 7th.


The company’s headquarters is located in Sabae City in Fukui Prefecture, Japan, a region distinguished for its sophisticated eyewear production techniques at the highest level in the world. With its own factory BACKSTAGE and its chain of directly managed stores KANEKO GANKYO, the company gets involved in everything from the planning and designing to the production and sales of eyewear, while assuring quality of products. Its “CRAFTSMAN SERIES”, a collection of glasses each of which bears the name of an author-craftsperson, is receiving high acclaim as a work to pass down traditional eyewear techniques to the present day.
