The remote and democratic country of New Zealand, where people do not care so much about their appearance preferring the casual style in general, could have been considered as the most absurd place to give a talented fashion designer to the world. But the fact is that now the fashion world is enjoying minimalistic and elegant apparel designs, exquisite accessories, jewelry and most recently also sunglasses designed by New Zealand fashion designer Karen Walker. We are so excited to discover the latest Karen Walker eyewear collection for fall 2015 that’s all about fresh designs, colorful frames and an artistic approach to the creations.
The eponymous brand Karen Walker has gained popularity not only among fashionistas and It girls but also many celebrities, who have noticed the brand through its bright colors, minimalistic and delicate designs. Rihanna, Alexa Chang, Jenifer Lopez, Natalie Portman, Madonna are every now and then spotted wearing Karen Walker pieces. Special attention should be paid to Karen Walker sunglasses that stand out with their unique designs and oversized rims. I am sure that real fashionistas have a range of sunglasses that differ very little in design. But if you have already obtained a pair of Karen Walker sunglasses then you are sure to have a unique piece in your collection that will be immediately identified as Karen Walker. The brand has recently launched new colorful and artistic sunglasses that instantly take us somewhere near water with its breezy name “Poolside”. According to Karen, the paintings by the British artist David Hockney served as inspiration for her while launching her new collection. She herself describes her inspiration this way: “I love the color blocking and the flatness of Hockney’s work as well as the actual colors themselves – the saturated blue on blue on blue!. Also, the way in which he captured the translucency of water I love and that’s why we’ve used very pale lenses in many of the styles.”
The brand stays true to its style once more by uniting two themes – David Hockney and the pool. We can see four different color themes and four rim designs that have been combined to provide you with four different eyewear styles. We can enjoy sunglasses inspired by David Hockney’s signature colors – sky blue and crystal sky blue, which are ideal to depict translucency of water. The water theme has been preserved for the next design as well, where sea blue and crystal aqua shades are combined to make you look like a real water girl. We can also see sunglasses in the design of which Karen Walker used her favorite color combination – dusty pink and crystal peach. If you want to look classic even by the pool, then you are free to choose the Crazy Tort sunglasses that combine black and gold shades in an artistic manner. Additionally, each pair of the sunglasses comes to be with some gold details that only enhance the chic factor of the collection.
The Karen Walker 2015 sunglasses are designed in a way as to suit every single face shape. Depending on your face shape and on your preferable color spectrum, you are sure to find the ideal pair of sunnies for you. Shop the collection and more stylish designs here!
