the girl and the garden...


Godammit Anna-Karin, what the hell were you thinking.

Sending me a pdf of your Summer collection.

I want them all.

It's like an 80's wonderland and it goes without saying that Alessandro Michele  is doubtless on the phone to his lawyer as I type...

ANNA-KARIN KARLSSON 2018 tells us the story of a girl lost in a wild and lush garden. There she creates and adorns herself with the most spectacular objects to keep the darkness of her mind at bay. A quest that takes her deeper into the pursuit of beauty – and further into the wild…

The Girl & The Garden Eyewear Collection is the most technically advanced ANNA-KARIN KARLSSON Eyewear collection to date. The collection contains frames produced in titanium, handmade in Japan; the Sunglass style The Garden is hand carved into individual perfection by one of the greatest Japanese titanium eyewear masters.


ANNA-KARIN KARLSSON is known as the world’s leading brand for luxury eyewear. Combining avant-garde design with extravagant materials and immaculate execution, each frame is a piece of art.

The company is based in Sweden and the designs are sold in more than 50 countries all over the world.


Lavish glamour, ultra feminine designs contrasted by strong sharp lines have become the brands characteristics. The avant-garde designs are executed only through the highest level of handcraft and exclusive materials such as 24k gold, white gold, rosé gold and titanium. Pearls, emerald stones, hand-set crystals and even diamonds decorate the ornate designs.


These are not glasses you would wear every day but there are some shapes in there that I have never seen before.

Hell ,who knew I wanted panda glasses.

Sunglasses that would make me look like a panda. Well I sodding well do now...
