Recognized as one of the preeminent designers in eyewear today, Blake Kuwahara launched his exclusive eponymous range of sunglasses and optical frames in the Fall of 2014.
Kuwahara, who also has a doctorate of optometry degree from UC Berkeley, first gained international acclaim as the creator and designer of the exclusive KATA Eyewear brand. His groundbreaking use of engineering and production techniques to create texture and detail for KATA Eyewear reinvented the way eyewear design is approached today.
Kuwahara’s bold experimentation and innovation have gained him a following in the fashion media and has been profiled in Vogue, ELLE, Bazaar, GQ, In Style, and Esquire and has been seen on E!, Access Hollywood, MTV, and CNN. Buzz magazine voted Kuwahara one of the “100 Coolest People in Los Angeles” and Detour magazine called him, “a gifted talent, blessed with savvy and unmistakable sense of style.”
When we bring in a new line there has to be an IT factor. Something that makes it stand out from the crowded world of eyeglasses. When it comes to Blake Kuwahara it is the incredible attention to detail and quality. Made from the finest accetates, you can feel the quality the moment you pick them up. Taking up to 9 months to complete, these frames are the epitome of quality. Now availiable in the Scarsdale location, stop in and try them on for yourself.
