Brilliant But Fragile Design

I’m a huge fan of Jasper Morrison’s work. From his super-normal furniture collection for Vitra to his cutlery and stacking stools for Muji, you can tell just how much thought and care he puts in to every detail of his designs. That’s why I bought his Icon glasses without hesitation after seeing them advertised in a MOMA newsletter. And I’m so glad I did because I absolutely love them.

You really have to see these glasses in person to fully appreciate how well they are designed. The size of the frames is absolutely perfect. And I think I’ve received more compliments on these glasses than any other article of clothing or accessory I’ve ever owned. I only wish that they were made out of a different material. I like how lightweight the glasses are, but the material used in their construction lacks a premium feel. What's more, it’s highly susceptible to scratches and scuffs. I dropped my glasses within the first week of owning them and was heartbroken to discover that a little piece of them had chipped off. I called J!NS about this and was told that their warranty doesn’t cover cosmetic damage. The J!INS representative who assisted me was very kind and empathetic. He partnered with his manager to offer me with me a 10% discount on a future purchase, but I just couldn’t justify buying a new pair because of a scuff.

I’m not sharing this to discourage anyone from buying these glasses. In fact, if you’re considering getting these, you should totally buy them right now, They really do look amazing and you’re going to love them. Just make sure that you keep them in their case at all times when you’re not wearing them, if you wish to keep them looking unblemished.
