We are a society of proud, driven, uniquely interesting independents.
Each of us, an original in our own way;
Passionately, and purposefully, driven to make our own marks in this world.
Authors of our own destiny;
With a genuine desire to simply state "who we are"
Authentically, and with impact.
In a way that inspires others to take notice;
That inspires others to follow.
Therefore, STATE eyewear is a symbol of an ideal. Meticulously handcrafted to be a genuine expression of one's personal style and distinct personality. Designed to be every bit as substantive, captivating and original as the people who wear them.
As a company that challenges the status quo; that is blazing its own path despite being told, "it can't be done;" that is by every measure of the phrase "self-made in America," STATE envisions America through the lens of "New Originals." Artists, musicians, architects, scientists, fashion designers, philanthropists, entrepreneurs, etc. – all makers and doers – who, like us, are out there making and doing things that redefine what America means and stands for in their own unique ways. From their own unique perspectives.
These fierce independents represent the next wave of American iconoclasts. To tell their story is to tell our own.
