Bonnie Clyde® Eyewear was born in 2016 in a retired-movie-theater-turned-warehouse of Downtown Los Angeles.
Our designs find inspiration in the confident and playful — balancing striking palettes with unique forms and constructions.
We aim to provide a channel for the endless waves of contemporary art & eclectic music that flow from within our city.
Founder and designer, Jon Yuan, is a protégé of the eyewear industry. His family started their own sunglasses company in Los Angeles over three decades ago and his childhood was seen through colored lenses.
Naturally, Yuan fell in love with sunglasses and found a creative outlet with Bonnie Clyde® Eyewear. Yuan’s eclectic tastes in music and art all seep into his designs, creating a unique voice in an industry that lacks contemporary yet accessible eyewear.
Outside of work, you’ll find Yuan taking candid portraits of his friends, enjoying long walks around his DTLA neighborhood, and singing with his imaginary Japanese funk band.
