A traveling Candy Bar might sound like something from your childhood, but Karen Walker’s Candy Bar is a little bit more grown up and a lot sweeter. The retail concept is Karen Walker’s latest exclusive offering from her eyewear range, and has already spent six months travelling the world. The installation is actually two separate “Candy Bars,” each travelling around the globe from the U.S to Asia and is currently in New Zealand and Australia.
The Candy Bar is calling Incu in Sydney and Melbourne home for its Australian stop, with Incu in Melbourne playing host from 14 January to 11 February.
The Candy Bar itself is a neat pop-up display case with minimal branding and merchandising. These particulars are left to each stop to decide on, giving the Candy Bar an ever-changing face or, flavor.
The world tour and new designs celebrate Karen Walker’s immense global success. Her collections have proved strong season after season and her eyewear has sold out more often than not. The Candy Bar will continue to travel through New Zealand before it makes the journey back north for Europe and North America throughout 2013.
Be sure to visit the Incu Women’s store in Melbourne this month before the Candy Bar leaves our shores for good. Or, if you yourself are travelling this year, be sure to follow the Candy Bars’ journey through karenwalkercandybar.com.
