Kirk Barrie

We photographed Kirk at Rethink Breast Cancers’ annual fundraiser, Boobyball, and couldn’t help but notice his stylish blue and red frames. Kirk was traveling in Milan and searching for a souvenir when he came across an eyewear shop in a back alleyway. Wanting something bright and bold, he gravitated toward this “European” style, and literally saw these hand-made frames produced in front of him. We love the Rocket Pop-like colors and the abstract quality to the arms. The frame, meantime, features a classic shape – in between round and square – with thicker temples and a higher bridge.

Kirk says he loves wearing something a little different and likes the fact that he can pull off a more artistic frame like this, even in North America. Another sign that he likes the frames? He got another pair that’s equally eye-catching – in royal blue and neon green!
