Legendary Freeskier Sean Pettit stars in Campaign for Oakley Factory Team x Brain Dead Collab
Following the revival of Flesh and Chop Saw footwear silhouettes, the Oakley Factory Team returns, this time with its first ever eyewear project. The capsule collection features four exclusive Oakley Factory Team x Brain Dead sunglasses, Radar EV Path and Plazma, each in two distinct and context-dense plasmas, moulded by the shared vision of the two brands for a more interesting tomorrow.
Team Oakley athlete and legendary freeskier Sean Pettit joined the Oakley Factory Team and Brain Dead in the mission of bringing to life the new collection.
Brain Dead Team imagines the cross-section between art, design, experimentation, and functionality that desires to expand the mind and bring to life ideas from Oakley’s alt imagination. Kyle Ng says: “Many of Oakley’s designs are just coming into the contemporary due to how futuristic their initial concepts were. So, each pair in our new collection looks like it could’ve fallen from a mothership or broken free from a meteor to hungry humans below.”
The rich colours of the collection, green and orange, are inspired by the results of combining elements and pressure from a long and foregone craft. After attempting a series of prototypes, Oakley Factory Team and Brain Dead managed to recreate the ancient technique of injecting fire-like O-Matter® frame material into the Radar EV Path and Plazma’s chassis, accomplishing a stunning hue.
All equipped with Prizm™ Lens Technology to heighten the beautiful details of the world around you.
The Brain Dead x Oakley Factory Team capsule collection will be available starting March 14th at 6 PM CET on WEAREBRAINDEAD.com and on Oakley.com
