Karen Walker Asscher Sunglasses
Colour: Wheat Tort
The Asscher by Karen Walker is a retro frame very reminiscent of the famous Jackie Onassis's statement frames, bearing a large square silhouette and padded temples. These feature the classic Karen Walker statement style twist. Made from a mix of vintage wheat-toned clear bio-acetate with an opaque tortoiseshell chunky brow lamination. These oversized glasses are fitted with tan lenses for a super chic, unique appeal. The style is completed with a comfortable nose bridge, luxurious paddle-shaped arms and mini arrow hardware finishing the look. The signature Karen Walker mini arrowhead lamination and hardware are featured as well.
These frames are made from premium bio-acetate. This is a more natural version of acetate made with wood pulp cultivated and harvested according to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) guidelines and a unique vegetable-derived solution that replaces traditional chemical plasticiser. With approximately 68% of its raw materials obtained from natural and renewable sources, these frames are both bio-based and biodegradable.
