Eyewear brand, Kirk & Kirk, has released a new “super limited edition” collection of frames for spring.

The new line is based on the brand’s Matte Centena Collection and features three frames – ‘Sam,’ ‘Jarvis,’ and ‘Horace’ – in three new colours.

The matte Cadillac colour offers a vibrant shade of pink, matte prince is a rich purple, while matte stone offers a grey, opaque style.

The frames are handmade in France utilising Kirk & Kirk’s own grade of Italian acrylic.

There are only thirty sets of the frames available to independent practices worldwide, limited to one set per practice.

Commenting on the release of the new collection, Kirk & Kirk managing director, Jason Kirk, told OT: “At a time when stock management is so important, our limited editions offer clients the opportunity to keep their collections fresh and exciting without a huge financial commitment. Inspiring eyewear is a major part of what drives people through your door, so every frame counts.”

Kirk continued: “Now, more than ever, the various strands of independent optics need to be listening to each other and working together to make our industry more resilient.”
