Gentle Monster's CEO Hankook Kim recently announced the news that it is working in collaboration with Huawei in developing a series of smart glasses. This was announced at Huawei's #RewriteTheRules event located in Paris, where Gentle Monster unveiled its 'Once Upon a Future' collection of frames.

The design language of this collection is what should be expected for the collaborative series to come soon. In terms of the eyewear's functionality, users will be given the opportunity to answer their phones by tapping the glasses arms. The arms will also incorporate speakers, directional microphones, and a 2,200mAh battery that can be charged with the glasses case. Huawei also unveils that the eyewear will feature voice assistance, set to officially launch in July this year.
