“ELEMENT SERIES III” will be released, characterized by its television cut in which the inner rims of the sunglasses are diagonally hollowed out. The dynamic shape evoking old cathode-ray tube televisions is created through skillful cutting and polishing. This technique makes transparent lines appear between the frame front and the lens. The spring hinges structure makes it easy to take on and off the sunglasses and the lenses with UV protection on both sides protect the eyes and skin.
