“If I lived in Barcelona, I would never work”, Anton Janssens exclaims as he enters the fashionable room that was reserved for our interview; “all I would want to do is be outside in the sun”, he concludes. His rebellious and carefree attitude fit seamlessly with the identity of his brand, Komono
, which aims to bring accessible luxury eyewear and watches to the world. With the opening of their store in Barcelona, in addition to several others in Europe and one in Tokyo, the brand is certainly well on its way. In a no-nonsense manner, Anton Janssens enthusiastically tells us everything about Komono’s early days, the importance of keeping an open eye and the irrelevance of the Internet.
