Kirk & Kirk spotted on the faces of such stars as Elton John, Sharon Stone and Morrissey
It is hard to believe that it is only six months since the British brand Kirk & Kirk launched their first optical and sunglass collections.
Having already won 2 major design awards - Hall Of Frames and London Design Awards - and currently nominated for Frame Of The Year at The Optician Awards - the future is looking extremely exciting.
With 20 years experience behind them designing frames, Jason and Karen Kirk set up Kirk & Kirk to pursue their creative ideals and to maintain their production values. They have a reputation for innovation in design and materials and the new Vivarium collection is testament to these ideals. The frames are made of a specially formulated acrylic which is extremely light and comfortable to wear and comes in a range of colours that you simply cannot find anywhere else in eyewear.
The glasses are embellished with hand-crafted animal pins in sterling silver and nine carat gold, which are produced by artisan jewellers in Birmingham and then sent to France where the frames themselves are made by hand in the Jura.
This unique collection has already captured the imagination of some of the finest optical shops in the world, including Selima Optique, LA Eyeworks and Auerbach and Steele.
