The Shepard is 3D printed premium eyewear that comes in four colors and is limited to 100 pieces in total.
The design is inspired by a futuristic military aesthetic which draws from the DRKN brand DNA as well as the DRKN logo (constructed from positive & negative space). The result is sculptural, yet highly structured.
The eye shape has a wide field of view, delivering a truly immersive experience. Cut away sides and end pieces create negative space to further enhance field of view, while leveraging design freedom that only 3D printing offers. Temples swoop backward and cut sharply inward while thinning out to create an intentional “headphone zone”, that both aesthetically and functionally accommodates headphones.
DRKN and King Children teamed up with ZEISS to create lenses optimized to enhance the performance of gamers.
