With Dolittle hitting our screens any minute, the fabulous Robert Downey Jr is out and about doing a promotional tour. One of the best-loved fellas in Hollywood, Robert has his own style so we were chuffed when he was spotted wearing Kirk & Kirk eyewear this week.
A fanatical glasses wearer, RDJ crosses the spectrum when it comes to colourful glasses. From rimless, right the way to our own 8mm acrylic frames and usually with a custom tint lens to match his outfit and his mood. At the beginning of the week we were super excited when one of our team spotted him wearing Carter in Pacific blue from our Spectrum collection. We recognised it because our acrylic frames don’t need a core wire. Most of the frame is hidden behind his wife, Susan, but there was no mistaking that unique blue hue.
Just when we thought it could not get any more exciting, Robert hit the streets of Manhattan, on the way to the Jimmy Fallon Show, sporting Victor in Purple from the Kaleidoscope alongside a fashionably late Christmas jumper. That scarf is pretty cool too. No mistaking that colourful frame, especially from the side angle, when the sunlight hits the back. There is also a great moment during the interview when Jimmy tries on our frame.
As we speak, Robert has just turned up in Berlin to promote the Dolittle movie and look what he is wearing – Cecil in Jade from the Centena collection.
You can just tell when somebody is enjoying their eyewear. Thank you, Robert, for wearing them so well.
