Khaltoum Tortoise


Inspired by traditional Arab architecture, The Bledi Collection — Arabic for ‘my home’ — introduces a rich cultural perspective to the eyewear space and captures designer Nesrine Khemiri deep connection to Tunisia, where she spent much of her teenage years.

The Khaltoum — a bold silhouette — is inspired after the famous Egyptian singer of the Middle East Umm Kulthum. Her music lulled the life of many.

A universally flattering rectangular frame in a luxurious tortoise color-way is fabricated to deliver premium comfort. Featuring meticulously carved gilt filigree end pieces, the Khaltoum’s hinges are done up in a light-catching reflective gold, which is repeated in the temple’s statement NK logo created exclusively for The Bledi Collection. The intricate detailing references arabesques found in the delicate lattice work of moucharabieh windows typical of residences in North Africa and the Middle East.

Each pair comes in a midnight blue velvet keepsake case and accompanying micro-fiber cleaner cloth print with the NK logo.
