Epokhe creates its own atmosphere through premium eyewear. We approach the world with an art-first philosophy and celebrate this through product design and highlighting these designs through creative films and photography. We are always inspired by the environments and locations we experience on the road and make eyewear that thrive in these “external worlds”.
Epokhe is motivated to fill the need for functional eyewear with an emphasis on premium materials and we fuse high quality construction with timeless style while minimizing our impact on the environments we love through the use of bio-acetates, reducing our overall global footprint.
EPØKHE has become a genre all its own through our approach to creativity and design, thriving in both cosmopolitan city centres and remote beaches all over the globe.
All Epokhe frames are designed by Kai and Dion and are inspired by their constant travels with friends, peers and some of the most influential people in the industry. Being in constant contact with this group who are some of the most progressive surfers, filmmakers, photographers lends an insight to an unrelenting source of inspiration for new designs.
Epokhe takes its aesthetic cues from the timeless, optical frames of the past. Styles that have stood the test of time.
Kai and Dion travel to Italy twice a year to work with Epokhe’s Italian engineer who has been specializing in eyewear production for over 40 years. This process ensures each frame is a perfect blend of their modern vision and his extensive knowledge of traditional materials and techniques to create the best possible frame every time.
