Techno and house may have once been underground, but now the big genre icons achieve commercial status. The latest example? Nina Kraviz partnering with Ray-Ban for a new collection.


Kraviz’ Ray-Ban collection includes two new cat-eye framed glasses. Nina said she picked the cat-eye design because Ray-Ban hadn’t released new cat-eye glasses for a long time. As part of the partnership, Ray-Ban will name all future cat-eye glasses after Kraviz with the “Nina” name.

Kraviz partnered with Ray-Ban as part of the eyeglass company’s Feel Your Beat partnership series. The Martinez Brothers were the first artists to partner with Ray-Ban for the series, a clear appeal to the underground heads. The series itself not only gives artists the chance to partner with Ray-Ban, but also be documented in new videos. Kraviz’ video with Ray-Ban is a quick look into her personal and touring; nothing we haven’t seen before, but at least it’s well produced.
