Summer Reading: “The Answers” by Catherine Lacey

The title of this novel is extremely well-suited for vacation reading. Who WOULDN’T want to recline on a breezy beach or poolside lounger, calmly reading a book called “The Answers” while people around you wonder what could possibly going on between those pages and in your head?

The title of this novel is extremely well-suited for vacation reading. Who WOULDN’T want to recline on a breezy beach or poolside lounger, calmly reading a book called “The Answers” while people around you wonder what could possibly going on between those pages and in your head?

The Answers” is the second novel from Catherine Lacey. Broadly, it’s about technology and the mysteries of romance. Specifically, it’s about a young woman in New York City who is hired by a male celebrity to serve as a freelance girlfriend (but not in the way you’re thinking). What unfolds is a journey through our modern social habits, with enough thrills to count as a page-turner and enough insight to count as a brain-improving artifact.

In other words, the perfect summer wormhole in which to disappear!

Warby Parker was founded to challenge an established industry. Off-White was founded to challenge an established aesthetic. What we have in common is a devotion to high-minded, high-quality fashion and innovation in all that we do. We also now share a limited-edition line of sunglasses. (Out today!)

This collection offers three bold, angular styles in a range of sizes—appropriately named “Small Sunglasses,” “Medium Sunglasses,” and “Large Sunglasses.” At the core of each frame, you’ll find Virgil’s take on a pair of luxe black sunglasses: classic curves, extra-thick acetate, dark lenses. Take a closer look and discover subtle tweaks that give each pair a touch of the surreal: exaggerated proportions, zero base curve lenses with blue anti-reflective coatings on the inside.

Introducing the Sculpted Series

Today, we’re dropping four new frames with extreme outfit-enhancing power: Gemma, Skye, Stella, and Mae.

Today, we’re dropping four new frames with extreme outfit-enhancing power: Gemma, Skye, Stella, and Mae.

They’re handcrafted in Italy from premium cellulose acetate and feature an uncommon construction. On the face of each frame, two layers of contrasting acetate are laminated together, the frontmost layer carefully sculpted down to reveal glimpses of the layer behind. The result: an arresting frame-within-a-frame effect. Add beveled temples on each side—the first full collection of frames we’ve ever released with this detail—and…sigh. (Like, a good sigh—no exasperation here.)

Acetates in this series come in rich, stone-inspired hues—from graphic Onyx Tortoise to moody Sable Horn to warm Rose Clay—and are paired for maximum visual impact. And all four frames (Stella especially) are generously oversized. All the better for remaining mysterious.

The Great American Solar Eclipse Is Coming

It’s not very often that a total solar eclipse crosses the country from coast to coast (the last time it happened was in 1918!). On August 21 this year, it’s happening again, and we are over the moon about it—no weird, inverse pun intended.

We’ve recorded a high-powered ballad about astrophysics, are giving away free eclipse-viewing gear at all of our stores starting August 1, and are flying one lucky eclipse observer and a friend out to celebrate with us in Nashville on the big day (official contest rules here).

Everything you need to know is on one big, eclipse-y page. Check it out >

To Read: What’s Got You Blue?

Sometimes blue is not the warmest color. You never know what will bring on the mean reds or the other harmful shades of the color wheel, but maybe these books can provide a bit of solace—a green room instead of the wild blue yonder.
