Kirk and Kirk // New Kaleidoscope Shapes

British designers Kirk & Kirk have launched two new shapes in their iconic Kaleidoscope Collection for the Autumn season, both heralding a vintage touch.

Drawing on the popularity of Bert and Guy in the Centena collection, FINN is a double bridge unisex frame with a retro edge.

The entire Kaleidoscope collection, including FINN and Nancy, is available in an exciting new tone of Blue, named Capri, inspired by the tranquil shores of the iconic island. All Kirk & Kirk frames are hand-crafted in France from start to finish in their bespoke Italian acrylic.

About Kirk & Kirk

When brothers Sidney and Percy Kirk set up Kirk Brothers in 1919, they could not have envisaged the unique circumstances unfolding today. A pandemic, regional and national lockdowns and Brexit have transformed the optical landscape. In countries where opticians remain open and allowed to trade, many consumers still remain hesitant toward face-to-face contact, so opticians need something special to draw them back. Kirk & Kirk have answered the call with a steady flow of new product releases designed to inspire and entice wearers. Thanks to continuous introductions of new shapes and colours in their Kaleidoscope, Centena and Matte Centena collections, along with limited-edition releases, the company has experienced steady growth over the last twelve months and is now present in over 35 countries.
