Warby Barker

A few April Fools Days ago, we created a line of Warby Barker frames, you know—glasses for dogs. They were fake, but our canine affection is real.

Last week we commemorated the prank, by hosting a passel of pups at our New York, San Francisco, and Abbot Kinney stores.

The first few folks who came with their dog better-halves took home a box of chew toys and other squeaky treats from our friends at BarkBox.

We’re in Wynwood

This past weekend, we opened a new store in Miami—more specifically, the Wynwood Art District.

This past weekend, we opened a new store in Miami—more specifically, the Wynwood Art District. Though this is our first stand-alone location in Miami, we’ve been selling glasses, slinging vintage reads, and offering art-themed bikes rides at The Readery (inside the Standard Spa, Miami Beach) since 2012.

Settling down in the Wynwood Art District made perfect sense from the start: great art, tasty restaurants, and a stable of other like-minded folks. (There are over fifty galleries in the neighborhood!) Lucky for us, we’re located in the heart of it all—right around the corner from The Wynwood Walls on Northwest 25th Street.

The store itself reflects much of the area’s industrial vibe, but with an added dose of poolside pizzazz thrown in (think swimming pool-patterned floors, tropical plants, and an overhead photo booth that recreates your classic lounging-by-the-water moment.)

Stop by if you’re in the neighborhood.

217 NW 25th Street
Miami, FL 33127
786.605.1112

Open daily 11:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m.

Books We Love: So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed

So you’ve been publicly shamed.

Haven’t we all??

So you’ve been publicly shamed.

Haven’t we all??

In his new book, Jon Ronson—expert in psychopaths, weaponized paranormal activity, and political extremists—brings his beloved brand of self-deprecating inquiry to a topic a little closer to our tender hearts. Meet the plagiarizers, Twitter gaffers, SEO hackers, and outed adulterers who populate our contemporary land, where all-but-eternal embarrassment is just a misstep away.

Read So You’ve Been Publicly Shamed  and you’ll never click ‘send’ without double-checking your recipients ever again.

Introducing the Daydream Collection

Our Daydream Collection is nothing but sunglasses, sunglasses, sunglasses.

Our Daydream Collection is nothing but sunglasses, sunglasses, sunglasses.

We’re introducing new frame shapes Jackson (a wider but similar take on the ever-likeable Winston) and Abel (a little angular, a little round, a lot of fun). They’ll be your new grab-and-gos for lunchtime saunters and Vitamin D replenishment, while current favorites Piper, Topper, and Madison get a little freshening-up in colorways like Petal Tortoise, Crystal, and English Oak.

It’s a completely sublime way to ease into the season—and not a day too soon.
