I SPY…

How about a little game of I SPY with the above photo and some of our Spring 2015 frames? Here goes!
We spy an elephant, an arrow with no bow
Some rats, a cricket, and a buffalo
Six pairs of glasses, an Austrian with a frown
And we spy three bridges (though one is upside …

We spy an elephant, an arrow with no bow
Some rats, a cricket, and a buffalo

Six pairs of glasses, an Austrian with a frown
And we spy three bridges (though one is upside down)

We Spy: Aurelia Tortoise

Specks of blue, purple, and peach—wow, this splashy new hue sure does remind us of, say, a jellyfish.

(Also, we named it after a jellyfish.)

Our Lexington Store

We installed our Warby Parker sign at our uptown store on Lexington Avenue, but before you think “Zoning, electrical permit, municipal construction code compliance”, stop by and take a look at this gem. It’s a refurbishing of the prior sign (below), a vertical banner touting Lascoff Drugs—a pharmacy that closed in 2012 after 113 years …

We installed our Warby Parker sign at our uptown store on Lexington Avenue, but before you think “Zoning, electrical permit, municipal construction code compliance”, stop by and take a look at this gem. It’s a refurbishing of the prior sign (below), a vertical banner touting Lascoff Drugs—a pharmacy that closed in 2012 after 113 years in business. Rather than ditch the sign (blasphemy!) we gave it a fresh coat.

To Read: Can You Keep a Secret?

If you’re keeping something hush-hush, may these titles help you in your pursuit of silence.

Secrets, secrets are loads of fun—well, maybe just if you’re nosy.

If you’re keeping something hush-hush, may these titles help you in your pursuit of silence.

A warning: hiding rarely ends well, no matter how low your stakes. Don’t blame us if you start blabbing midway through the flowchart.

Introducing the Spring Collection

We’re diving right into spring. And why not? The sun is shining, there’s blue water somewhere, and we’ve all got warm weather on the mind.

We’re diving right into spring. And why not? The sun is shining, there’s blue water somewhere, and we’ve all got warm weather on the mind. It feels like a good time to introduce some fresh frames.

This season’s eight new shapes and six new colors have some added depth (literally). Classic at first glance, but look a little deeper and you’ll discover nautical design details borrowed from the open sea: anchor-hued titanium blended with blue coral acetate, sandy shades modeled after rippled ocean floors, saltwater matte finishes, jellyfish-inspired tortoise, and more—including a handful of solid standbys.
