Going for gold: Karen Walker Superstars collection

High shine

Fans of the label will be pleased to know that Karen Walker has weighed in on the mirrored lens craze — both classic and new frames get a lustrous makeover

Thick frames and bold shapes have always been Karen Walker's forte, and with the release of new styles Maze and Creeper this year, the brand's cult following has only continued to grow. For fall 2015, the New Zealand brand has updated its collection to appeal to a wider audience — those with a penchant for shiny objects. And let's face it, there is a magpie in each and every one of us. 

Aptly called 'Superstars', the new capsule collection consists of six frames with either gold or silvered lenses and includes bestselling styles Helter Skelter, Harvest, One Worship and Super Duper Strength in addition to the new kids on the block, Maze and Creeper. 

Embrace the label's mantra for big and bold shades and try on our favourite: The swanky gold lensed Creeper (pictured above). Whether you're making a fashion statement, hiding from last night's sins, or protecting your peepers from Singapore's rays, you can't go wrong with a pair of KWs. Go big or go home.  

The Superstars collection is now available at the On Pedder boutique at Takashimaya.
