Expertly combining age-old production methods with the finest modern technology, new independent eyewear company LARKE have produced a collection of glasses that are hand carved in a modest, family run, English workshop.
Each of the frames is made from rare Italian acetate that is often end of the line to assure limited production and, as a result, a more exclusive frame for the wearer. The fact that the brand is driven by a strong appreciation of the minimalist and understated is clear: the frames are simple, sophisticated and undeniably stylish.
Within the seven piece strong collection, there’s something to complement every style: chic and classic frames such as the Lowis and Horne are mixed with innovative silhouettes like the Locke and Alden. The level of attention to detail in the designs is apparent too, with Hadley’s key-hole bridge and Radus’ strong, horizontal brow line.
Not only are we drooling over the sleek selection of styles, but the array of colour finishes has also got us pretty excited. From the eye-catching ‘safari’ and ‘shell’ prints (which manage to remain subtle and wearable) to the effortlessly chic, perfect for winter ‘smoke’ and the office-appropriate yet statement-making matte black and clear ‘glass’ finishes, there’s something for every social calling.
Each frame has been specially created to accommodate both optical and sun protection lenses, and is delivered with an English-made, utilitarian-inspired bridle leather pouch.
