Kirk & Kirk - Thor
Thor is a Unisex frame, designed by Karen Kirk and hand-crafted from start to finish in one factory in France. Despite the chunky appearance, this bold silhouette weighs next to nothing and is supremely comfortable to wear as it is made from Kirk & Kirk's unique signature Italian acrylic, a bio-degradable material that took several years to develop.
Available in five colours, ranging from Secret, a soft grey/black combination to Meadow, reminiscent of the horizon where the grasses touch the sky, Thor is a confident statement of self-expression. It is a stand-alone frame in the world of eyewear yet still clearly a Kirk & Kirk design, allowing the wearer to express their personality, their individuality through their glasses.
Although entirely contemporary there is a nod toward retro with a suggestion of ‘motor-racing cool' of the 1980's; think Alain Prost. It can be worn in strong, bright colours or in gentle, under-stated tones.
Thor pushes the boundaries. It encourages us to review what eyewear can achieve, the emotions frames can evoke. It is designed to be worn as a natural, dynamic expression of mood and personality. It is designed to inspire and excite.
