Karen Walker x Ethical Fashion Initiative

Just had to re-post this after seeing it over on Miss Moss. The sunglasses, the photos, the campaign, and the cause are just too good to miss.

The gist: Karen Walker has paired with the UN's Ethical Fashion Initiative to commission Kenyan artisans to design and create wares for her Summer 2014 eyewear collection. Artisans involved include machinists, cutters, tailors, and metal workers, not to mention members of the Maasai group who brought their expertise in beading to the project.

The pieces will be available for purchase in early February (so, soon). In the meantime, enjoy this hell of a collaboration:
