Struggling to find the perfect gift for a discerning fashionista? Or looking for something edgy to accessorise with whilst sipping bubbly on the beachfront this summer? Or maybe the man in your life needs a serious style upgrade? The cult British eyewear brand Kirk Originals is hitting SA shores this December and their collection of hip, retro-inspired sunglasses are the perfect statement piece for non-conformists and trend setters. Having risen to fame in the ‘90s with their 50s and 60s-inspired frames, Kirk originals became well known for their innovative designs and were flaunted by many in the London jet set. Now, the brand is making waves once more with its 2014 re-launch.

Kirk Originals are meticulously and expertly handcrafted in France using only the best quality Italian materials. A limited number of each item in the eyewear collection is made, making them highly desirable. The aesthetic of the frames in the Summer ’14 collection reflects influences from art, film, music and fashion, combing modern trends with that classic Kirk Originals feel for a completely unique and exclusive look that cannot be found anywhere else.

“True luxury comes from superior quality and a sense of distinction”, explains Elize Pretorius – MD of Kirk Originals South Africa. “Our philosophy is to create pieces that reflect the individuality of the wearer and allow them to express their personality.” Pretorius is very excited about Kirk Originals’ entry into the South African market. “The SA scene hasn’t seen anything like this brand before. It’s sophistication with a quirky edge – perfect for South Africans who like to create trends instead of follow them.”
