Eyewear giant Gentle Monster and cult luxury brand Hood By Air have collaborated again on a new collection of chic sunglasses. Rooted in the rebellious subcultures of New York City, the inspiration of biker culture is found in the two featured designs: the goggle-like frames  ‘Antagonist’ and the US-exclusive gold-tinted frames ‘Mother’

With a campaign shot by the duo Torso Solutions, the lookbook showcases the collab's homage to the city. The Antagonist - a bold goggle-style black acetate frame designed with a flat front top with protecting grey lenses. The style is also available in white, pink, and red. The Mother has a square silhouette that is available in black with orange lenses and a distinct gold chain detail at the side and an HBA logo at the corner of the frame.  All frames are fitted with 99.9% UV-protected lenses.

The collection is now available worldwide and is available to purchase online and at the Gentle Monster flagships, with prices ranging from: $320-$420.
