Recently deemed one of Time Out’s Most Stylish New Yorkers, eyewear designer Kerin Rose is a true embodiment of all things outrageous and glam, kind of like if pin-up met punk.
With her bedazzled looks donned by celebrities such as Rihanna, Nicki Minaj, Snoop Dogg, Katy Perry and most notoriously, Lady Gaga, Rose has quickly skyrocketed to the top of the high-fashion eyewear game. And we’re not talking Kanye West stunna shades circa 2005… these creations are elaborate to the nines with studs, Swarovski crystals, feathers and lace.
In 2008, after years of being stopped in the street for her hand-made eyewear art, Rose launched the extravegant accessories line, A-Morir. And with all her eyewear pieces named after musicians or songs, it’s no wonder Kerin’s work has been extra clad in the music industry– not to mention, the show-stopping power boost the eyewear itself guarantees to any performance.
Each eye-catching set of glasses is hand-crafted by Kerin herself and can cost up to $700– but if you think you have the gumption to pull these bad boys off, you can find a pair for close to regular designer prices. And if you can’t swing it, we suggest you keep tabs on this girl about town and all of her amazing looks on Twitter.
Seems like this talented lady subscribes to every HPNOTIQ girl’s motto– Don’t Just Turn Heads, Break Necks!
