“Monkeyglasses’ AW19 collection celebrates the company’s 10th anniversary. “Looking back, we can’t
be prouder of everything we have achieved!” says Mai-Britt Seaton, owner, Monkeyglasses.
“We believe that everyone can be a role model. We’ve tried our best to lead the way with zero waste policy, recycled paper packaging, biodegradable cotton acetate, recycled steel, and donations to the “Save The Orangutans”.
The AW19 collection by Monkeyglasses is built around the notion of courage. Originating from Latin, the word “courage” denoted the “heart” as “the set of feelings”. However, time and generations have reshaped and changed the word’s meanings. Courage became a synonym for “bravery”, “heroism” and the ability to do something that can be frightening. It became estranged from its true roots of courage - the honesty and openness of speaking from the heart about one’s fears and feelings. “Having the courage to show who you are is scarce and special.
At Monkeyglasses, we believe that real heroes are those who are not afraid to be themselves - we are dedicating this anniversary collection to all of you who have the inner strength to be who you are, and feel proud for your choices.”
