Launce$ton and Hobart—south of the mainl*nd but on secretly on top of the style/gorp globe—deliver the summer’s best SZEXssesory’s, HEAVY FIRE facewear in the form of sunglasses that protect you from both UV and making eye contact with the unfortunate swagless peons who missed out on these puppies: the undeniable Bruny Island ferry of summer fits.
YOU HAD ME AT LAUNCE$TON
They were borne of the kind of collab-spiratorial FEVER DREAM we mere mortals can only dream of, when professional surfer and dedicated AMATEUR CROWDSURFER Dion Agius approached Brian Ritchie (the guy that played bass on Blister in the Sun; also festival director of a little-understood but SIGNIFICANTLY-SLAPPING summer soiree called Mona Foma) with a shady scheme. Dion had a dream to switch up Brian’s trademark spenny foreign sunglasses for SPECCY SPECS designed right here in Tasmania. Brian jumped at the opportunity of creating a SENSE OF PLACE ON HIS FACE and the Mona Foma x EPØKHE sunnies were born.
TOO EXCITED TO READ, READY TO COP SHADES
Based upon Dion’s very own signature SZEX frames, they’re crafted in eco-friendly bio-acetate and feature CUSTOM-GRADIENT POLARISED lenses engineered to make everything look like PURE BLISS. A righteous customised TECHNICOLOUR-EXPLOSION case and cleaning cloth complete the suite. These puppies are limited edition (expect RAPID SCARCITY), but boast unlimited recognition (of your undeniable street cred).
But wait! There’s more! NOT MERELY MERCH, these sunglasses are also a ticket to a VERY SPECIAL, VERY COOL experience at Mona Foma 2022. These off-rose-coloured peeper-protectors will admit the head and body attached to them into a POLARISING festival event somewhere in Hobart that only Mona Foma x EPØKHE wearers can see.
GIVE US MONEY, RECEIVE SHADES
Buy these sunnies, look extra cool this post-apocalyptic summer and see the world (and the festival) through FRESH eyes indeed.
