EPØKHE is an Australian eyewear brand that was founded in 2012 by Filmmaker Kai Neville & professional surfers Dion Agius & Mitch Coleborne.
Good friends since their late teens the trio have been travelling the world and creating together for over a decade. The shooting of Kai’s 2010 film ‘Modern Collective’ spawned talks of creating a brand together, something of their own, something new and under their creative control. Spending so much time out under the sun and simply not being able to find eyewear that they and like minded friends wanted to wear, the trio discovered a substantial hole in the eyewear industry and set out to fill it with a premium, youthful eyewear brand. A brand offering unparalleled style with handcrafted frames made from the finest sustainable materials. A focus on quality, design and ethical production methods have set a solid foundation for the brand.
Answering only to each other EPØKHE was established with no investors, just drained bank accounts big ideas. The teams relentless creativity keeps the EPØKHE world spinning through the seasons to provide a platform for their surfing, design, art & film.
