In this series, artisans from both Sabae and Chicago showcase their craft in a robust collection including – titanium styles made in Japan, and combination styles that join the finest Japanese-made titanium temples with STATE’s luxurious American-made acetate fronts.
Inspiration for the Hakone
Nestled in the mountains, dappled with onsen hot springs, in full view of Mount Fuji, the town of Hakone makes the perfect day-trip from Tokyo. This titanium style also offers its beholder lovely views, with striking contrasting colorways and a signature pattern expertly etched atop the top bar.
