True to their values, Kirk & Kirk design and construct their glasses the same way they do everything – with enormous attention to detail. Karen Kirk is inspired by the endless sculptural possibilities of their bespoke materials, she designs each frame by hand initially, drawing inspiration from jewelery and mid-century glass
Kirk & Kirk have developed their own acrylic, from which they create a unique colour palette, allowing them to create confident, impressive eyewear, that is light in weight and beautifully comfortable to wear. Acrylic is an extremely durable, lightweight material that won’t lose adjustment or stretch over time. An endless array of colour is possible through acrylic that you will not find in other collections, allowing complete design freedom.
The frames benefit from German five-barrelled hinges, strengthening each frame with the comfort of integral nose pads.
True to their roots, all frames are constructed from start to finish in one factory in France. Kirk & Kirk glasses present truly modern ideas, crafted the authentic, old-fashioned way.
