Karen Walker Super Duper Strength Sunglasses
Colour: Black with Black
The ultimate pair of black sunglasses is this pair right here. This style is a very popular, cult-like style designed by Karen Walker. The style comes in many variations, this pair is the classic black with black colour variation. The Super Duper strength is long known for its exaggerated round shape - it's an oversized frame with a showstopping appeal.
The frame is made out of a transparent indigo bio-acetate. Combined with these striking frames, the lenses are also in dark black as well to make them the ultimate black sunnies for every occasion. Of course, in true Karen Walker style, they are complete with her iconic arrowhead pins at the temple, also in tonal black.
This silhouette is crafted in premium bio-acetate. Bio acetate is a more natural version of synthetic acetate as it is made from wood pulp, which is cultivated and harvested according to the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC) guidelines. This unique vegetable-derived solution replaces traditional chemical plasticiser, which is less kind to our environment. Since about 68% of raw materials are obtained from natural and renewable sources, they are both bio-based and biodegradable.
- Alternate Fit - these frames feature higher nose pads to prevent the frames from sliding or resting on the face. They are, therefore, especially ideal for shallower nose bridges.
- UV protection provided is excellent.
- Protection against glare is excellent.
- Prescription lenses can be fitted in the frames
- Made of premium bio-acetate to phase out chemical additives and optimise biodegradability at end-of-life.
- Comes with a luxe and a cleaning cloth
