I tend to gravitate toward simple and modern eyewear — that's why I'm a fan of Warby Parker — the brand exemplifies simplicity, but they do it in such a distinctive and expressive way.
When it comes to eyewear, it's hard to figure out which brands are best. When I needed a new pair of glasses a few years ago, a popular luxury brand asked me to pay nearly $600 for a prescription frame alone. And no, the frame was not very sturdy. Doesn't that seem unreasonable?
Needless to say, finding a stylish, streamlined design was at the top of my list. But like most consumers, a major part of my purchase also came down to product durability and affordability.
Warby Parker's frames are crafted in cellulose acetate, a synthetic compound known for its strength and wear resistance. So if you're looking for high-quality designer eyewear that won't break the bank, a pair of Warby Parker glasses starts at around $95, with free shipping and free returns!
As if that's not impressive enough, Warby Parker also has an altruistic side. For every pair of glasses sold, they donate a pair to someone in need. So far, they have distributed over two million pairs of glasses worldwide. How awesome is that!?
When Warby Parker asked me to announce their newest eyewear collection, I was thrilled to collaborate with them. The brand has partnered with fashion and portrait photographer Amanda de Cadenet to create two new frames that are named after her twins, Silvan and Ella.
Ella is an optical frame in jet black with striking gold accents on its temples. So chic!
and Silvan comes in optical and sunwear versions with the eyeglasses in peony
and the sunglasses also in peony but featuring a silver reflective lens
The Silvan sunglasses above (with the silver reflective lens) have such flair! They're the antithesis of my current frame — both in size and color — and would be perfect for my sensitive eyes this summer. What's your favorite pair? Let me know in the comments below.
Warby Parker's newest eyewear collection is available for purchase today! Don't forget to place your order, here. This post is sponsored by Warby Parker, whose mission I absolutely adore. Thank you so much for reading. xoxo.
