New year, new eyewear……
Some of you may have spotted on our Instagram that the brand new Spectrum Collection has just hit the stores.
Featuring six new styles – Carter, Miles, Joss, Emily, Anna and Polly – founders Jason and Karen Kirk continue to experiment with exceptional qualities of their unique grade of acrylic, creating eight new colours that capture and play with light in a magical manner.
The collection is incredibly tactile, with angles, cut-aways and elegant facets that lends a sophisticated touch and a tactile quality. Like stones honed by the ebb and flow of the sea, the texture and shaping of these frames invite you to touch them. There is also a continuous and fluid connection between the laminated colour combinations, taking you on a journey as you move around the frame, revealing varied colours at different angles.

Designer Karen Kirk commented, “I love working with acrylic. The colour opportunities are enormous and often surprising. As with glazing pottery, the shaping of the pot, or in our case the frame, has a significant effect on how the colour turns out – and for this collection, the faceting of the frames was incredibly important to me. It felt as if I was literally carving the frame out of the material.”
The frames come alive when they are worn, allowing the wearer to express their true colours and personality. For people looking for something vibrant, the bold contrast of Chocolate Blue or the statement colour of summer which features a fuchsia pink front with yellow interior and temples are for you – yet the rich, warm colour combinations such as Autumn and Hazel provide a more conservative alternative.

Kirk & Kirk are the only eyewear company in the world to handmake frames in acrylic, and it is this specially developed grade of acrylic which offers unique qualities such as colour, texture and durability which make the frames so light and comfortable to wear.
Spectrum is available in eight colours – Pacific, Chocolate Blue, Autumn, Berry, Hazel, Spark, Mars and Summer.

Wishing you all a very happy and healthy 2018. May your vision be incisive.
