    The world has fallen in love with Swedish artist Eleonor Boström, and wonders what she’ll make next–for the past ten years, she has created works inspired by dogs, claiming that she hasn’t grown tired of it yet. Her work is characterized by utilizing dogs to express thoughts on society, reality, fantasy, and flowers. While her style seems humorous and lighthearted, her message is more serious: people get caught up in the minutiae of daily life, and we should all take time to stop and smell the roses. This collaboration, based on the concept of living every moment to the fullest, is a symbol of self-acceptance and relaxation.

     

    This collaboration has been made possible by TONKACHI, a popular art initiative hosting a number of creators. JINS x Eleonor Boström is the second collaborative eyewear series the initiative has created, the first being JINS x Polly Fern.

     

    Edgar, the pet dog of the British character Sybil who appeared in the Polly Fern collection, features heavily in this collaboration. With 8 models and 24 varieties of slim metal frames, there’s something for everyone! Each pair is playful yet subtle, and are paired with a soft case and cleaning cloth which are limited to this collection. The case itself features a simple embossed design featuring Edgar, while the cloth is printed with a four-frame comic drawn by Eleonor exclusively for this release.

     

    The third project with TONKACHI is planned to be a collaboration with Marianne Hallberg, a ceramic artist from Gothenburg, Sweden.
