An oversized rectangular aviator inspired by the louche stylings of the early 1970’s. The Black and Blue features an infilled bridge and deep lenses. This frame mixes South of France glamour with rock’n’roll posturing. Fitted with silver pins to the front and temple and a subtle silver raised tongue icon on the ear tip we have added a decorative swagger to an already bold frame silhouette.
Back in time for Summer 2022 after a sell-out collaboration in 2021
The Rolling Stones x Kirk Originals sunglass range has been expanded to include a new smoke grey colourway in the Aftermath silhouette and the addition of a luxurious deep brown lens in the Black & Blue silhouette.
Kirk Originals have drawn on the imagery of the young Stones rolling through the streets of Soho in the 1960s and reimagined their dark and brooding attitude within the bold Aftermath silhouette. The1970’s Stones owned the aviator frame and Kirk Originals took the opportunity to capture their own version of this timeless classic adding a new spin for contemporary wearers.
The result of the collaboration is a suite of two frames appealing to bold and confident characters. Timeless silhouettes, referencing exciting moments in time when rock n roll style and attitude was central to London culture.

"Black and Blue is an aviator representing the band in all of their 1970s glory. I wanted to capture the perfect aviator but give it something unusual, something truly eye catching and so the yellow lens came into play.
The iconic lips sit on the ear tip in a raised silver and theres a slimline silhouette used to offset the oversized lens. Pure Rock’n’Roll style!"
