I love Warby Parker – the cool eyeglass/sunglass company that makes awesome, modern frames for a borderline ridiculous price. Their stores are beautiful, they offer quick frame adjustments, and I don’t know why, but I really love that the glasses all have people names. My favourite pair, for example, are my Wilkies – maybe one day they’ll come up with an Ashleigh frame?
Warby Parker’s new Curtis collection is actually a re-issuing of last year’s popular series (a collaboration with inventive music and art label Ghostly), but this season, they’re offering the super cool shades in new colors: Aubergine Fade, Moss, and Bourbon Tortoise, in addition to the previously sold-out Revolver Black (with a brand-new lens color), which will be sold exclusively at retail locations.
Just like all of Warby Parker’s glasses, for every pair sold, they distribute a pair to someone in need through their non-profit partners. And did I mention most of them are $95 freaking dollars? You can’t go to your local mall and buy a no-name crappy pair of prescription glasses for that price.
Because I’m feeling inspired by these new frames, I decided to put together an entire outfit around them – so if anyone’s looking for Christmas presents for me, any/all of this outfit would do:
My ultimate winter outfit, clockwise from top left: mixed cable sweater, J. Crew; Tourmaline kid leather ankle boots, Jimmy Choo; leather bucket bag from Steven Alan; and Moto Cord Jamie Jeans from TopShop.
Merry Christmas to me! And until Warby Parker debuts their Ashleigh frames, these Curtis ones will do just fine.
