Kate Sylvester's new eyewear collection KS Sun

We are liking Kate Sylvester's approach to their new sunglasses collection.  Kate Sylvester has created three modern classics that not only look great but are high quality in construction, designed to last for a long time like Kate's highly successful optical line. The styles, named after three of the designer's literary heroes; Holly, Patti and Lux all feature polarised lenses and are all designed to frame the face rather than override it. The 'Lux' features a unique chrome nose bridge and smokey grey colour way whilst the 'Patti' modernises the classic tortoise shell frame. The sunglasses will retail for $345 and will be available at all Kate Sylvester stores, selected optometrists/eyewear stores in NZ and Australia, online and through Anthopologie in the USA. Here are a couple of shots from the campaign featuring New Zealand's biggest model du jour, Ashleigh Good (at RPD), shot and styled by Karen Inderbitzen-Waller.
