To celebrate their 20th anniversary this year, eyewear brand Kirk Originals have created BEAM, a brand new collection made entirely of acrylic. Acrylic is not a new material for Kirk Originals as they have been making acrylic temples for their past collections since the late 1990s, but this is the first collection with acrylic fronts.
|Blaze in Amethyst|
The frames are gloriously oversized with soft lines and curves, but with all Kirk frames it’s the fun colours that create the biggest impact. For the Beam collection, Kirk has used a new process of colour marriage which allows the bright translucent hues to merge and separate in tones of fluorescent orange, pink, yellow and aqua, and so making each frame unique with its own colour identity.
