KIRK & KIRK // NEW CENTILES COLLECTION

New for 2022 is the Kirk & Kirk Centiles Collection, which is an evolution of the Centena Collection. This collection is Kirk & Kirk’s first to combine the two-toned colour pattern made popular in their Kaleidoscope range with the chunky presence of the 10mm thickness used in the Centena Collection.

Despite the chunky appearance, this bold silhouette weighs next to nothing and is supremely comfortable to wear as it is made from Kirk & Kirk’s unique signature Italian acrylic, a bio-degradable material that took several years to develop.

Available in five colours, ranging from Secret, a soft grey/black combination, to Meadow, reminiscent of the horizon where the grasses touch the sky. The collection will be available late november.

    Marrying these two elements into one frame was challenging, and took us two years to get right. The hand-crafted nature of the manufacturing process means that each frame has a slight variation in the colour pattern, meaning that no two frames are exactly alike.

  • We wanted to design a collection that was the embodiment of strength and power, to counter the sense of vulnerability and weakness we have all felt during the last two years. Frames that immediately put you in a superhero state of mind.

About Kirk and Kirk

In a world of conformity, there are those who are different… Those who resist the pressure to fit the mould, chase the trends, and win the ‘likes’. They do their own thing, are their own authentic selves, and march to the beat of their own drum.

Built on a 100-year history in optics, Kirk and Kirk was founded to be different. They’ve never chased trends, nor sought industry approval. They’ve been making distinctive eyewear to help our customers authentically express themselves. We make frames without labels, for those who refuse to be defined by one.
