For over a decade, men have worn Karen Walker’s signature eyewear collection. Now, the preeminent New Zealand fashion designer has expanded her accessories empire and created a range of eyewear for men – MONUMENTAL by Karen Walker. True to Karen Walker’s statement-making aesthetic and energy, the Monumental collection offers directional designs that both reinforce and redefine our concept of modern masculine style. Now men who have long wanted to wear a Karen Walker design can have something of their own.
MONUMENTAL by Karen Walker sunglasses are named after monumental men in history – Voltaire, Hemingway and Julius Caesar, to name a few. While these names point to a traditional interpretation of masculinity, Karen Walker is quick to note men’s fashion is more fluid than ever. Monumental eyewear speaks to what men want in a pair of sunglasses, anchored in simple, honest design. The MONUMENTAL by Karen Walker collection offers an edited range of modernist styles inspired by the ‘30s and ‘50s that will become the core of future accessories collections and each is made specifically to fit and flatter men’s faces.
You can shop Karen Walker’s debut men’s eyewear collection – and many more to come – at THE ICONIC. Frames are made in clear, black, tortoiseshell and horn acetate and there are silver and gold metal frames too. You can also choose from classic or polarised lenses in green, grey and brown shades. While the men’s category may be new to the New Zealand fashion icon, this premier eyewear range embodies her zeitgeist-defining style and dedication to using high quality materials and craftsmanship. Every pair comes with a designer case and box and yes, many sunglasses styles are branded with the Karen Walker arrow logo.
