    About The Work

    One of the most influential, prominent, and controversial French artists to emerge in the 1950s, Yves Klein is remembered above all for his use of a single color, the rich shade of ultramarine that he made his own—International Klein Blue. As a painter, sculptor and performance artist, his work greatly influenced the development of minimalism. After decades of using the color International Klein Blue in the fashion sector, for the first time the Yves Klein Archives, on behalf of the heir to the Yves Klein estate, has authorized a brand to use the unique patented color International Klein Blue. The result is a collection of vintage inspired eyewear with lenses by Barberini. Featuring high-quality mineral lenses with a mirror effect, the royalties from this collection are going to the NGO OrphanAid, a non-profit organization that develops programs and projects to help vulnerable children and families in Ghana, West Africa.
