Karen Walker’s new resort eyewear collection, SHADOW PLAY, launches today, and it’s all strong shapes and clean tones.
The range uses soft colour lenses and bold frames to purposefully create shadows on the face. “The idea is that there’s this beautiful interplay with light on the skin as the lenses bounce back a colour wash and the frames create this graphic, playful sense of structure to super-enhance your beauty look,” Karen says.
Showing that eyewear can go beyond style and actually function as a beauty shading tool, the models were shot on film in natural light to highlight the unique shapes created by the shadows. Warm browns, gentle whites and classic black accentuate the angles of the cheekbone and jawline, while metal/acetate frames create a definitive outline.
Karen Walker SHADOW PLAY is available from selected stores including Net-A-Porter, Liberty, David Jones and Karen Walker stores.
