Before Christmas we had the very exciting arrival of the much talked about brand Kreuzberg Kinder. This is a collection of frames that have been making a big impact in the European fashion eyewear market. Kreuzberg Kinder (meaning the children of Kreuzberg) comes from the inspiration of close friends Gilli and Erez, born and raised in Kreuzberg Berlin, they have been working with fashion brands for over twenty years and fully understand niche eyewear. To them brand names do not matter, they could afford to buy an expensive suit or a flashy watch but visual wealth is not the driver, for them fashion eyewear is a feeling, a connection, something that feels right to the wearer and is truly individual.
Kreuzberg Kinder have generated an ever-growing celebrity following (to which we have added!). Local Comedy Writer Tim Reid, (‘Meet The Richardsons’ &BAFTA award for Peter Kay’s Car Share) has just collected his new statement KK piece in a deep blue, we hope to see him on the red carpet once again for his latest show ‘Meet The Robinsons’. Actor Tom Davies (Murder in Successville and the new BBC series King Gary) saw the collection on Instagram and had contacted Kreuzberg Kinder direct to see how fast he could get a pair! David Harper from the antiques roadshow is also a very proud owner of many pairs of Kreuzberg Kinder and like many other unendorsed celebrities he really champions the brand.
Follow @kreuzbergkinder to get a feel for the style, we are so proud to be one of a handful of UK practices to stock the Kreuzeberg Kinder brand.
