Komono – Light Blue

With the capsule collection ‘Light Blue’ Komono celebrates the base of modern skate culture

words Editorial Staff

At first glance, the new Komono capsule collection ‘Light Blue’ seems to synthesise the lightest and most dreamy shade of clear blue sky. But actually, its inspiration is something else entirely, and it derives from that special ‘elective affinity’ the brand has always had with street sports in particular. In fact, the blue chosen for the new Komono glasses is a tribute to the emptied suburban swimming pools of Los Angeles, which in the late ‘70s became evaporated playgrounds for teenagers with wheels and kick-started an explosive skateboarding scene.
