Exclusive: Karen Walker Eyewear 'Fantastique' Lookbook

A first look at the brand new limited edition collection.

It seems Karen Walker is not partial to traditional lookbooks, instead preferring to adorn inanimate household items, and extra-terrestrial beings with her latest creations. Karen's latest eyewear lookbook offering 'Fantastique' sticks to the theme, this time with balloons! 

The limited edition collection feels very regal, reworking some of the classic Karen Walker frames in laser-cut black or gold filigree. The playful campaign was imagined by creative director Mikhail Gherman, who wanted to capture the collections optimistic and celebratory feel. “I love the way that even inanimate objects can immediately become filled with extraordinary personality with the addition of a great pair of shades”, he mused. 

Also, this is a GIF of our Designer Stacia modeling a pair from the new range whilst wearing a bear mask. Yes.
