This week Eyewear brand Kirk Originals was crowned one of Timeout London’s 100 best shops.
The hotly anticipated list was put together by Time Out magazine and a prestigious line up of judges including Matthew Williamson, WAH nails founder Sharmadean Reid, Grazia Magazine’s Fashion Editor at Large Melanie Rickey, Restaurateur Russell Norman, Gallery owner Steve Lazarides, Start Boutique co-owner Brix Start Smith and fashion bloggers Navaz Batliwalla of Disney Roller Girl and Bethan Holt who works alongside Melanie on Fashion Editor at Large.
Sitting alongside industry favourites and long established names such as Lucy in Disguise and Shop at the Bluebird, the Kirk Originals unique use of space and ‘kaleidoscopic’ design won the judges over and with full eye tests available in store as well as a wide range of quirky opticals and sunglasses, their place on the list was more than deserved.
Considering the store is only just about to celebrate it’s one year anniversary we think that’s quite an accolade. Well done Kirk Originals!
