Connan Mockasin fronts Karen Walker 'Monumental' campaign
Karen Walker has unveiled transgressive artist and bon viveur, Connan Mockasin as the face of its first ever men's campaign.
The new brand, 'Monumental' builds on Walker's signature eyewear collection, featuring bold geometric shapes and statement frames.
Shot by Derek Henderson, the campaign takes influence from the feathered headwear of Monumental men such as Lord Nelson and Julius Caesar. The statuesque images see Mockasin wearing the new collection with a little ornithological assistance.
New Zealand-born Mockasin started his career in London before touring with Charlotte Gainsbourg and Radiohead, before settling in Los Angeles with girlfriend, Hiromi Oshim.
Mockasin is currently putting the finishing touches on his third solo album and is also working on a five-part drama series titled Bostyn 'n Dobsyn which will see him playing the role of a music teacher.
