A vibrant fashion brand with numerous celebrity customers

Kirk Eyewear Limited (“the Company” or “Kirk & Kirk”) produces a distinctive range of glasses and sunglasses, handmade in France from a special grade of acrylic, providing a range of colours unlike anything else on the market.

The Kirk name has been an integral part of the UK optical industry since 1919 when Jason’s grandfather, Sidney, founded Kirk Brothers and began frame and lens manufacture. Kirk & Kirk designs and produces a range of luxury, handmade glasses and sunglasses, utilising a unique grade of acrylic to provide an exciting colour palette and advantages in terms of weight. Jason and Karen Kirk previously founded and grew a critically acclaimed glasses brand, Kirk Originals, before founding Kirk & Kirk in 2013 to launch a new range that has achieved strong growth and celebrity clientele that appreciate the heritage and authenticity.

Celebrity clients include Prue Leith, Naga Munchetty, Fatboy Slim, Morcheeba, Morrissey, Kirsten Vangsness, Sharon Stone, Robert Downey Jr. and Nicholas Pinnock.

Following the completion of a £500,000 fundraise in September 2019, Kirk & Kirk is seeking further funding up to £500,000, on the same terms and in line with its original plan, to expand its range and to increase the market penetration of its products.

This exciting, young company is in a unique position to capitalise on a fast-developing market with opportunities to grow in wholesale, online and fashion sales, consultancy and distribution.

We want our investors to be fully aware of the downsides of investing as well as the potential benefits. It's therefore important to realise that investing always carries risks, including the loss of capital, illiquidity (the inability to sell assets quickly or without substantial loss in value), lack of dividends and share dilution. Alternative investments should still be made as part of a diversified portfolio. Read our full Risk Warning
