All eyes were on Karen Walker’s latest collection of sunnies at Hotel Americano on Tuesday, September 15. The New Zealand designer teamed up with online fashion retailer, Shopbop, to host a celebration for the launch of her Resort 2015 eyewear collection and campaign named “Poolside”.


Stylish guests including Chelsea Leyland, Blair Eadie, Kilo Kish, Michelle Salas, Jimena Martin, and Carmine Marasco, gathered at the boutique hotel—poolside, of course!—where they tried on the bold frames and snapped photos alongside blow-up floaties.


Walker looked to English artist, David Hockney’s ultra-glam paintings of Hollywood swimming pool parties for inspo on the “Poolside” collection (which consists of four oversized frame shapes in muted pinks, apricots, as well as sky blues, watery turquoises, and a classic black with tortoise detail). The pieces were also seen at her SS16 runway show yesterday, adding a playful touch to the feminine looks—what can we say, it was certainly love at first sight.
