SHOPPING: ONKLER SS15

It’s been a while since I’ve found such a bold and avant-garde eyewear brand. While it’s relatively easy to purchase psychedelic or futuristic vintage sunglasses, especially from the 70s and 80s, it’s more challenging to find a collection with the same cohesiveness and dedication. Onkler’s creative mind, Nicolas Jahns, 29, created Onkler to celebrate the people, fictional or real, who have inspired or empowered him. Unlike other...
