Toast the dog stars in Karen Walker Eyewear campaign

Karen Walker Eyewear has no shortage of celebrity endorsements, but the latest star to sport the New Zealand designer’s sunnies isn’t your average It girl.

Toast, a King Charles Spaniel with an impressive Instagram following, is the face of Karen Walker’s latest eyewear campaign, modelling the new range alongside the designer herself.

Walker said she was after a model that suited the caramel-y colour palette and whose hair would work well against wind machines.

“We always love it when celebrities wear our glasses but it wasn’t until we first saw this season’s star that we thought there was a celebrity who could actually capture the essence of our brand in a campaign.”

There are five new styles in the summer 2015 collection, which is on sale online and in store nationwide on January 29 or at The Department Store on January 28.
