Leave it to Karen Walker
to turn out yet another sunglasses lookbook that makes us want to stop everything
we’re doing and just stare — oh, and prep our wallets. Just when we thought this New Zealand designer couldn’t top last season’s adorable kids’ shoot
, she hit us with her latest installment
, entitled “Visible.” And, once again, we can't take our eyes off the gorgeous shades.
Walker enlisted Kenya-based artisans (machinists, cutters, tailors, production managers, and metal workers who have acquired craft skills through the Ethical Fashion Initiative) to highlight her latest eye-popping designs, built upon her signature strong, exaggerated shapes and vibrant colors. In addition to the sunnies themselves, Walker teamed up with Kenyan artisan groups to produce a collection of pouches that’ll accompany each frame sold. The only downside? We’ll have to wait a few weeks to actually purchase these must-have specs. So, in the meantime, click through to peep this truly empowering lookbook full of captivating images and shop 17 similar Walker styles right now.
