Introducing the Fourth Update to RAEN Eyewear's Luxury Wig Collection

OCEANSIDE, Calif. - eTradeWire -- RAEN (http://www.raen.com), creator of modern, handcrafted eyewear teamed up with Professional Surfer, Artist, Musician, and RAEN Ambassador, Alex Knost for the fourth time on a new style joining the Luxury Wig Collection. Dubbed Teenage Tokyo, three colors will be available in numbered, limited editions of 200 each. Teenage Tokyo is available in a recycled black frame with dark smoke lenses, a new tortoise pattern with a bottle green lens and in amber with a rose lens.

Knost referenced music and fashion icons Jim Morrison and Debbie Harry to craft a wide, flat frame with thick temples. "For Teenage Tokyo, I wanted to create a stylized frame reproaching the oblivion that is outside the glare, with the thick frame and its disaffected silhouette." Knost shares that he was "inspired in part by the LIFE photographer Michael Rougier who captured one Japanese generation's revolt in 1964, symbolic of intimacy and rebellion." The design team at RAEN incorporated wrapped end pieces with beveling along the top brow in order to achieve Knost's vision. Additionally, Teenage Tokyo features Knost's handwritten Luxury Wig script on the side in a metal plaque alongside its individual number. To store the oversized frames, RAEN also constructed a new, fold-flat, pop-up case from recycled materials.
