The DDX23° Capsule Collection was created through a collaboration between Dargen D’Amico and 23° Eyewear, inspired by the singer’s desire to develop his own line of sustainable sunglasses made entirely in Italy.
Dargen’s natural inclination towards asymmetry let the artist choose to partner with 23° Eyewear, and it is what gave rise to this new Capsule Collection.
The unique feature of 23° Eyewear is the asymmetry of the temples, which is present in all our eyewear designs. This represents the ideal balance between the left and right sides of the human body, which coexist in harmony despite their differences.
“MY NATURAL INCLINATION TOWARDS ASYMMETRY IS THE CONNECTION BETWEEN ME AND 23° EYEWEAR AND THE REASON WE VENTURED INTO THIS COLLABORATION.”
ROUND ONE – WARA
ROUND ONE – KANA
The DDX23° Capsule Collection centers around the Round One model, which is already a part of our collection. Dargen D’Amico has chosen and reimagined this model in ten distinct colors, drawing inspiration from his passion for Japanese culture.
The Round One model is known for its stylish and protective guards on the sides, as well as a removable insert on the bridge made from recycled rubber. All frames in the DDX23° Capsule Collection are crafted from Bio Nylon and have the DD logo on the temples.
Additionally, featherweight, durable, and mirrored polycarbonate lenses provide 100% UV protection.
“I WAS FORTUNATE TO BE IN JAPAN WHEN THE IDEA FOR THIS NEW COLLABORATION WAS BORN. AND I DREW INSPIRATION FROM VARIOUS ELEMENTS, MOMENTS, AND SOUNDS OF JAPANESE CULTURE.”
The DDX23° Capsule Collection features sunglasses that are inspired by Dargen D’Amico’s experiences and deep appreciation for Japanese traditions.
When asked: “Where does your creativity come from?” The singer replies: “I draw inspiration from everyday moments, including dialogues where I am not always the protagonist, as well as from sounds, silences, and words that I understand or believe I do. It’s like when you hear something in the table next to you, that sounds familiar due to homophony, but actually it’s just your interpretation.“
