SHIRLEY SHIRLEY SHIRLEY
London Fashion Week
At London Fashion Week, a bespoke capsule of l.a.Eyeworks frames punctuated the presentation of designer Peter Jensen’s women’s wear collection for Spring 2016. A cult favorite among fashion cognoscenti, the U.K.-based Jensen chose noted Los Angeles stylist/costume designer Shirley Kurata as the muse for his playful, idiosyncratic proposals. Each model in his “army of Shirley’s” was styled with frames based on Kurata’s personal eyeglasses: a vintage “Montrose” designed by Barbara McReynolds and Gai Gherardi for l.a.Eyeworks. The custom-made suite of frames was crafted in exotic jewel tones and dark, shimmering tortoises exclusively for the fashion week presentation.
