Mid Mod

Crisp lines. Buttery smooth curves. Color palettes that celebrate bright, fun hues and say no to drab grayscales. You don’t have to be an expert on design to spot something out of the Mid-Century Modern movement. From the slabby, glass-walled Eichler homes of Palm Springs, to the iconic “Egg Chair” you may have seen in a neighbor’s living room, the Mid Mod mindset has influenced more of our everyday life than we may realize. “Form follows function” was the cornerstone of this school of thought. Our approach here at Knockaround is pretty similar: perfect the product, decorate later. But as you can see, this order of operation hardly means striking style is unachievable. Win-win!

Throwing you back to the drawing boards of the 40’s and 50’s, the Mid Mod Fort Knocks wield the irresistible marriage of minimalist form and high class function. The exterior of the front frame is a glossy teal, while the interior fades from a bold raspberry red down to a subtle chartreuse. Each arm’s porcelain white base is adorned with a simple system of multicolored dots geometrically linked by thin grey lines. The interior, meanwhile, sports a collection of whimsical shapes that resemble the famous Sputnik chandelier. Timeless amber lenses and gold detailing offer this pair a simple, yet refined finish.

Designed on our durable and high-quality Fort Knocks frames, these sunglasses have a slightly wider fit than our other frame styles and provide full UV400 sun protection. Each pair comes with a colorful retrometric pouch and hand-numbered edition card.
