Known for his role in Gossip Girl and his skater boy style, our latest Gen V cover star Evan Mock is bringing his cool guy aesthetic to eyewear. In collaboration with Epøkhe, Mock creates a frame that’s built for exotic atmospheres. From sunny island beaches to the wild child lifestyle of NYC, Mock’s frames are built to fit in.

The new frame, ‘Suede’, takes inspiration from the 60s beatnik sub-style. Soft round contours create a wave-like shape, one that fits in perfectly with the design principles of the beatnik era. The sunglasses come in 4 unique colorways that reflect Mock’s style and personality. From a sleek black frame to a bright mauve, these frames transition from days in the sun to hazy nighttime activities.

All of the Suede glasses use the finest handmade materials. Mock brings elements of the beach to his design by adding his iconic starfish jewel. The dainty symbol sits on each arm of the frames. The starfish brings the beachside and city aesthetics together in a subtle way. No matter if you’re walking down Avenue A or watching the sunset on Banzai beach, these frames are for you.

Although being a standout in the skateboarding community, Rieder, unfortunately, lost his life to leukemia in 2016—and Mock and Epøkhe are determined to keep his spirit alive by aiming to donate portions of every frame sold to The Dylan Rieder Foundation, as Mock states “As a thank you for the influence and contribution Rieder had on the skateboarding community, I will be donating 100% of my royalties to the Dylan Rieder Foundation".

The 'Suede' sunglasses are now available to purchase here on Epøkhe.co.
