Karen Walker Metals Sun Collection

Karen Walker Sunglasses - Metals
Karen Walker “Metals” is a bold expression of negative space.
We introduced the range with Karen Walker’s first optical collection. Now we present the Metals sunglasses.

“We altered our focus this season with new styles that expose their intrinsic architecture and create a sense of illusion, almost as if the frames float on the face,” says Karen Walker.

The collection introduces a new aviator shape, the JACQUES, as well as metal reworks of classic Karen Walker shapes.  The all metal frames feature sleek cutouts on the front, lending a light and airy feel; jewellery for the eyes.

The stellar color palette includes metallic blue with blue mirror lenses, gold with classic G15 lenses , and silver with metallic silver mirror lenses. Worth noting the entire collection uses air-cushioned nose pads for a finely tuned comfortable fit and Zeiss lenses for superb optics.

Karen Walker Metals Optical

Karen Walker Eyeglasses

Karen Walker debuts her first ever line of eyeglasses!

The “Metals” optical collection, featuring frames composed entirely from metal, is an exploration of negative space. In true Karen Walker fashion they are bold, chic, and unlike any eyeglasses we have ever seen.

“The lightness of the way the Metals frames float on the face worked perfectly for extension into clear lenses,” Karen says. “There’s an inherent delicacy to the collection that transcends conventional spectacles to become jewellery for the eyes.”

Karen Walker Sunglasses - SS 2016 Arrowed by Karen

Like Cupid’s arrow through the heart, Karen Walker Eyewear strikes us down this season.

Since the New Zealand based designer first introduced sunglasses over a decade ago, her one of kind frames have always been instantly recognizable from a mile away. This is without any overt logos or branding, just a simple arrow adorning each temple. And If you didn’t notice the arrows before, don’t worry, you surely will now! As Karen Walker’s iconic arrow is the star of this season’s campaign and collection.

Karen explains “The arrow stands for the brand’s optimistic spirit, élan and fearlessness…Our campaigns are always about the fun side of wearing sunglasses and this campaign is about the Karen Walker effect you experience when you’re wearing a pair of glasses with an arrow on the temple,” To further that point, she disclosed that the only direction given to this season’s model was “to be delirious.” No doubt, a natural side effect to wearing one of her gorgeous pairs of sunglasses.

Fans of the brand will notice a mash-up of familiar shapes, however in true Karen Walker fashion, the end result are sunglasses which are completely unique. The styles are reinvented in new colorways of rose pink and soft grey, as well as Karen Walker’s staple crazy tortoise and classic black.

Her tongue, which dangles because of her former mistreatment now only makes one love her all the more.

The rich golden decor is a prominent theme throughout the range.

From dramatic cat-eye’s, such as the new “Starburst”, to one of a kind round designs (“Maze”), and something in between (“Flowerpatch”), there is no shortage of showstoppers.

The color palette includes Karen Walker’s signature “Crazy Tortoise”, classic black, as well as new hues: Navy, Dusty Pink, khaki, and Tan. All perfectly paired with shiny gold, and complimentary colored lenses.

Karen Walker Sunglasses “Visible” | SS 2014

Karen Walker sunglasses - SS 2014

The Karen Walker ‘Visible’ collection features a plethora of new exciting designs and colorways. The line-up of sunglasses includes bigger bolder versions of some of Karen Walker’s signature frames, as well as both classic and avant-garde completely new shapes. As always, there is no shortage of color. The color palette ranges from staples, such as black and “crazy tortoise”, to summery hues of turquoise, lavender, orange, and even a gold sparkle (just to name a few). Also be sure to check out the limited edition models with lightly colored lenses.

Karen Walker’s previous campaigns have included vampires, Egyptian gods, and even broomsticks.  But this season takes a more realistic approach for a cause that “aims to highlight, celebrate and acknowledge”. For 2014 they teamed up with the United Nations’ ITC Ethical Fashion Initiative to create fair wage work for groups of micro-artisans located in urban slums and disadvantaged rural areas of Kenya. These local artisans created limited run silk screen pouches, which will come with every frame, in addition to the standard Karen Walker hard case.  The captivating campaign imagery features the very same machinists, cutters, tailors, metal workers and Maasai artisans.
