Orange You Glad?
Welcome the new light with Karen Walker sunnies, made for a bright and not-so-distant future.
It's really spring, right? This isn't just another one of nature's gotchas? Okay, cool, because we want new shades to wear in the newly great outdoors. Our pick: Karen Walker's “Peg” ($180) in the exact colour of orange sorbet. The Kiwi brand is a perennial stylist's fave, and we see why. Frames are distinctively shaped, but meld coolly to all manner of personal styles, from retro to futuristic.
This spring is about colour: blocked, clashed, in all ways bold. Said sunnies would go brilliantly with mint green, navy and basic denim blues. Or wear with a plain-and-easy outfit, just to make your eyes pop. —SNP
