What’s New

  • Silmo 2017

    We are currently getting ready to leave for Paris to attend Silmo over Thanksgiving weekend. We have been attending this show for over 20 years!

  • Yohji Yamamoto Exclusively at Karir

    We are excited to present the latest collection from Yohji Yamamoto exclusively in our stores. Yamamoto is an influential Japanese designer known for his avant-garde style which is well represented in his latest collection of sunglasses. Although Yamamoto has dabbled in the optical world in the past with other designers such as Alain Mikli, we feel that this collection is a true representation of his brand.

    The collection features oversized shapes with an interesting twist and most lenses offer frosted mirror coatings. Check them out in our First Canadian Place and Yorkville locations.

    May 2016: Launching our New Website Design

    We’re very excited to introduce our new Karir website, created for us by Karen Lim Design. We asked their team to create a simple website structure that would let our customers find information quickly and easily. And we wanted a clean graphic design that would showcase the sophisticated shapes, colours and textures of our frames.
