Introducing Amanda de Cadenet x Warby Parker

We’re delighted to share our newest frames in conjunction with creative multi-hyphenate, Amanda de Cadenet.

We’re delighted to share our newest frames in conjunction with creative multi-hyphenate, Amanda de Cadenet. A fashion and portrait photographer, she writes, directs, creates and hosts TV and online shows, and, oh, she runs her own production company too. (She’s busy to say the least.) Her career has many arms, but at the core of her work, Amanda abides by inclusivity and candor. She is zero pretense and all heart, and we couldn’t be more pleased to team up on two new frames in support of her latest venture, #girlgaze. (More in just a sec.)

We’ve collaborated with Amanda to create Silvan and Ella, a single frame in optical and sunwear versions (both crafted in cellulose acetate) named after Amanda’s twins. Ella is an optical frame in Jet Black with bold, gold accents on the frame’s temple. Silvan comes in Peony—a nod to #girlgaze’s signature pink—in eyeglasses and with a silver reflective lens in sunglasses.

Amanda’s #girlgaze organization is dedicated to providing young female-identifying photographers with the tools and support they need to hone their craft. Backed by a who’s-who of female creatives, #girlgaze is a multimedia digital community showcasing the ways in which girls see the world. Their celebration of women in front of and behind the lens is a mission we can definitely get behind. To toast our partnership with Amanda, we are making a donation to the Girlgaze Foundation, which distributes financial grants for emerging female-identifying photographers and directors. The Foundation aims to put more girls behind the camera and close the gender gap.

We have a new book!

Introducing “Good Day / Bad Day”—the latest release from Warby Parker Press, our in-house publishing imprint based in New York City.

Introducing “Good Day / Bad Day”—the latest release from Warby Parker Press, our in-house publishing imprint based in New York City.

This witty book is part philosophy and part choose-your-own-adventure tale. And the best part: We’re giving the first purchasers of Spring 2017 frames a free copy for a limited-time (that means, like, right now).

There are also two other ways to get your hands on it:

1) Win it! We’re giving away free copies of the book (plus other good #swag like pencils, scratch-and-sniff stickers, and a tote bag), along with a pair of frames from our new Spring 2017 collection. All you have to do is show us what your good day (or bad day!) looks like with the hashtag #gooddaybadday and #contest. We’ll choose three lucky winners by this Friday, January 13. (Here are all the rules and terms of the contest.)

2) Buy it! “Good Day / Bad Day” will be available to purchase next week at warbyparker.com/editions (and in stores).

In the meantime, get excited by watching this infomercial video.

Spring is springing! (Almost.)

The top of the year is always the perfect time to hit Command-R on your aesthetic. The days are getting (sliiightly) longer, the flowers will soon be flowering, the weather is…weather!

The top of the year is always the perfect time to hit Command-R on your aesthetic. The days are getting (sliiightly) longer, the flowers will soon be flowering, the weather is…weather!

We’re gliding into 2017 with a set of flattering shapes and uncommon, of-the-moment details. Think: bold tortoises, blush tones, flat brows, and invigoratingly cool blues. These are glasses that get you out of bed the morning.
