This extroverted eyewear range will give you reason for reinvention

See here: Karen Walker’s latest eyewear collection, Transformers, is boldly going where no other sassy line-up has gone before, endeavouring to highlight (and playfully exaggerate) the somewhat hidden facets of our personalities. To demonstrate, the designer graciously offered to experiment on herself, sitting before a camera to create hyper-real self-portraits of her ‘transformations’.

Referencing the work of art photographer Cindy Sherman, Robert Mapplethorpe and Andy Warhol, whether you see yourself as a dissolute, haughty Princess, a platinum-stacked Country and Western star, a sleek Sassoon-bobbed eighties disco diva, a flaming red Thierry Mugler android or none of the above, you are sure to find something amidst the nine bold frames to suit whoever you’d like to be.

From oversized squares, imposing shields and overblown ’50s cat-eyes in solid shades of dusty pink and khaki and a new split contrast acetate, to lens and metal details in stellar new crystal colours, rainbow mirrors and amber tones, Transformers are available globally from Karen Walker Eyewear retailers now.
