With summer just around the corner, Karen Walker has released its Resort 2015 campaign and collection at the perfect time. Dubbed Poolside, the range translates the magic of concrete and chlorine to a mix of playful and eccentric sunnies, ideal for days by the water.
The colourful campaign was shot by Lorde’s boyfriend, James Lowe, and the collection was inspired by David Hockney’s glamorous Hollywood swimming pool paintings, taking a lead from his watery turquoises, aquas and sky blues as well as muted pinks and apricots for the offering.
Soft-transparent and high-reflective lenses, combined with strong colourblocking and splicing, really gives the four signature Karen Walker shapes a chic-meets-eccentric twist which will transport you to your fave summer destination, no matter where you are.
And whether you possess more vintage feels or futuristic vibes, somehow the New Zealand sunglasses extraodinaire has managed to serve up the both with this luxe range.
Check out the campaign for yourself below, and shop the collection from Karen Walker’s online store now to make a splash this season.
