It’s trade show season again and the Kirk & Kirk team will be traveling around the world showing our new frame collections for 2020.
London, Milan and New York will host events for independent opticians to stock their glasses for the year to come. This is the time when independent designers launch their new collections. Would you like a preview?
Last year we launched the Centena collection, the first ever eyewear to be handmade in 10mm acrylic. The look is strong and distinctive and has been really well-received so, this year, we have developed the concept. The new Matt Centena range uses our own secret recipe to create unique colours and then to give them a matt finish. The look is completed with a custom-built, metal bridge. There is a nod towards vintage glasses styling but these are not retro. Bold colours like matt cherry and moss green complement traditional colours with our own twist. Handmade in France, despite their appearance, these acrylic spectacles are deceptively light.
Launching at 100% Optical at Excel this weekend, then Mido and The Loft in NYC, these colourful frames should be in store by the end of the month.
