LARKE creative director Laura Nicholson had the honour of designing an exclusive pair of bespoke frames for Sir Elton John.
Commissioned especially for Sir Elton for a highly anticipated private performance at London’s iconic Battersea Power Station inaugural summer party. The salubrious event was attended by an intimate list of just 2000 guests, that included Grace Jones, Eva Herzigova and Sir Ian McKellan.
True to LARKE’s signature aesthetic the one off, custom made frames were hand carved in the unmistakable skyline of the power station and its famous chimneys, and assembled in a chic monochrome palette of juxtaposing matt black and pearlescent white. To finish, they were hand embellished with over 300 individual Swarovski crystals that undoubtably culminated in a statement frame embodying monochrome glamour on an industrial scale.
Our debut collaborative project with renowned Danish designer Stine Goya is revealed. We are thrilled to have collaborated with Stine in the creation of an exclusive accessory to sit alongside her Spring Summer 2014 collection ‘Mnemosine’. The result is a special edition pair of sunglasses, hand carved from the finest blocks of gold Italian acetate and fitted with contrasting grey Zeiss solar protection lenses.
Drawing on Goya’s particular use of colour and feminine appeal combined with the signature minimalist aesthetic and unparalleled artisanship of LARKE, the sunglasses have been produced in a limited edition run deeming them undoubtedly unique and exclusive.
