Inspired by the geology of a river carving its path through the earth, with its natural lines and unique facets, the Contour Collection brings a new dimension to the Kirk & Kirk collections. Comprised of five shapes, each is named after a member of the Kirk family – Emma, Zara, Layla, William & Van. All are available in eight sand-blasted colors, Jet, Glacier, Smoke, Jungle, Admiral, Candy, Indigo, and Carmine.
“It’s about amplifying the very best in our unique materials,” says designer, Karen Kirk. “Throughout the design process, we take a sculptural approach; sizing and re-shaping our very own grade of Italian acrylic in the same way a sculptor shears a rock.
The fronts are hand-crafted from our unique bespoke Italian acrylic which is then sand-blasted to create the matte finish. The frames are hand-made in Italy. The temples are cast in Alpaca Silver- a metal favored by jewelry designers. The spring joint ensures a lightweight, comfortable frame.
