WIDW—Karen Walker Eyewear x Kenyan Artisans


Hola peeps!  Well it is Wednesday and today I am digging theses fab Summer 2014 sunglasses by Karen Walker.  She enlisted Kenya artisans (cutters, tailors, production managers, metal workers and machinists) to model her cool shades and in return they are designing a collection of beaded and screen printed pouches that will be given at point of purchase.  This collaboration came about via the UN’S Ethical Fashion Initiative in which they pair up fashion businesses with artisans in Africa and Haiti to help bring about positive change in their communities.  Take a peek.

I am loving everything that I see here and moreso the cause behind it.  My hat is off to Karen Walker!  What are you thoughts on both?  Do tell.
