Bloody Snappy Shades
In Karen Walker’s 29 eyewear range lookbook “celebrate the sun”, models bare vampire-fangs and pose with sunglasses named “Helter Skelter,” “Voodoo” and “Jonestown”. Shot by American photographer Derek Kettela, known for his clean and elegant style of photography, the images of the fang-filled figures mirrored by the exposed image’s matching negative make for a keepsake-worthy publication. The eyewear itself is anything but eerie; with innovative nods to the past the feeling is fresh and lively, if not even a bit silly — perfect for summertime fun. Walker lives in New Zealand with her husband Mikhail, her daughter Valentina and their dog and two cats. There are three Karen Walker flagship stores in New Zealand and one flagship store in Taipei.
