Anna-Karin Karlsson was thrown into the highest end of eyewear fashion at 19 after finishing her acting/art degree. Her fascination for sunglasses started as a child when a friend's mother returned from Florida equipped with 80's glamour. But it wasn't until she tried on a pair of Christian Roth sunglasses that this fascination developed into a true passion. It was from this swirl of music, art, and acting that Anna-Karin's unique vision and style was born, building on her deep admiration for the traditional skills she saw through her work on bespoke eyewear.
