Inside The New OTIS x Imogen Caldwell Collection

When it comes to muses, there’s not many people who inspire us more than surf gypsy, adventurer, and model Imogen Caldwell. From small-town roots in Western Australia, she’s the perfect mix of down-to-earth meets free spirit, living the life OTIS stands for as one of our ambassadors. Imogen also has a keen eye for style so when it came to people to create an exclusive capsule with, she was top of the list. 

We’re now proud to announce the OTIS x Imogen Caldwell collection - 3 new frames selected and styled by Imogen herself. 

“My style is very broad,” says Imogen about the collection. “I like to mix it up and never get too hung up on one thing. I change up my frames with my mood. These frames represent my unpredictable life - a life full of adventure and uncertainty.”

The collection is made of our brand new Vixen, Oska, and Scarlett frames, each with signature accents like gold hardware detailing, monogrammed embossing, and an Imogen sign off on the inner temple. Every piece also comes with an exclusive Imogen Collection vegan leather sunglasses case, packaged in a recycled kraft card box. These finer details make it stand out and imbue it with a true sense of Imogen’s eclectic personality.

“Imogen was just dynamite to work with, a great combination of super passionate but easy-going,” says head designer at OTIS, Lucy Martino. “She was closely involved from the beginning, workshopping frame shapes, colours, styles, fits, packaging, right down to logos. Basically the whole suite of design.”

The result is a mix of ultra-fashionable yet practical styles that can take anything you throw at them - from the Australian Outback to a European Summer.

Here’s a look at the styles and what they bring to the collection in Imogen’s own words...

OSKA

“Oska is one of those frames you put on and you just feel like it was made for you. It’s a bit larger but it’s light and comfortable. It has a square modern edge and detailing on the arms. The Oska is an all-rounder, it’s made for every occasion.”

“Scarlett was the girl in me really coming out to play. It’s dainty, stylish as hell, and one of those frames you throw on to take an outfit to the next level. Scarlet is my middle name. I feel like she’s the girl inside me that gets to come out when I’m not surfing or on the back of a dirt bike.”
