Mr. Brainwash x Ray-Bans Collaborated On A 250-Piece Collection Oozing With Color
When Italian eyewear company Luxxotica isn’t busy designing the upcoming design for Google Glass 2.0, they’re busy collaborating with world-famous street artist, Mr. Brainwash. Mr. Brainwash x Ray-Bans will be coming out with a 250-piece collaboration through Sunglass Hut, and it's exactly what you need for summer. The collection will feature awesome paint-splattered sunnies and frames, which were inspired by MBW's impactful use of bold colors in his street masterpieces.
Similar to KATSU and Banksy, Mr. Brainwash is known for his beautiful, thought-provoking graffiti pieces. However, Banksy is known to heavily guard his identity because of his controversial artwork, whereas Mr. Brainwash is known to flaunt his identity. Banksy's Oscar-nominated documentary called Exit Through the Gift Shop is what was rumored to have given birth to the Los Angeles via Paris-based street artist, Thierry Guetta, better known as MBW (Mr. Brainwash).
Rumor has it that Mr. Brainwash might be a "puppet" of Banksy's, or that MBW is actually Banksy himself. With a sick undercover history filled with mystery like that, who wouldn’t want to rep this mad artist on a pair of sunnies? The collection will be available at Sunglass Huts in SoHo, NY starting May 15. And yup, Mr. Brainwash will be around for the collabo reveal!
