Introducing the Concentric Collection

Our new looks make their appearance not a moment too soon, just about the time your heavy layers could use a little zing.

Our latest looks are all about complement and contrast, with a bit of luxury and a subtle dash of color. The Concentric Collection makes its appearance not a moment too soon, just about the time your heavy layers could use a little zing.

To achieve a striking new feature, we worked with a factory that specializes in a friction process in which two hues are pressed together repeatedly, resulting in a subdued but handsome ring around the lens fashioned in a matchless acetate.CONCENTRIC_BLOG_launch_FINAL_women

Named for its hallmark detail, the Concentric Collection rewards a closer look. (Seriously, get in here.)

Three new styles, Benchley, Murphy, and Everly, make their mark alongside a new color, Whistler Grey. The interior ring comes in Vulcanite, Hazelnut, Flint, and Fjord Blue, hues inspired by the warmth of the season.

Warby Parker x Ghostly

All good things must not always come to an end. Case in point: Curtis.

All good things must not always come to an end. Case in point: Curtis, the smooth-lined sunglasses that first debuted in last year’s collaboration with the endlessly inventive music and art label, Ghostly International.

After selling out in record time, we decided to bring them back in a big way for Ghostly’s 15th anniversary. This time around we’re reissuing them in three limited-edition colors, plus the original black, which will be exclusively available in stores. We also partnered with five Ghostly artists to create custom artwork that can be downloaded right off our site—easy!

Austin, We Made It

After logging thousands of miles on the highway, the Warby Parker Class Trip has found a new home in Austin.

After logging thousands of miles on the highway, the Warby Parker Class Trip has found a new home in Austin. Starting today, the bus will be comfortably parked at Barton Springs Picnic, a community park that boasts delicious food trucks, picnic tables, covered pavilions, and overall good vibes.

It’s been a long journey since 2012, when the bus first began touring the nation to bring Warby Parker’s showroom experience to life. After a brief pit stop in Dallas, we decided it was time to get those wheels spinning again—and Austin sure seemed like a perfect fit.

Class Trip Bus 2

If you’re in the neighborhood, we’d love for you to come by the bus, which is fully equipped with leather sofas, oak shelves, classic reads, special finds, and of course, our full collection of glasses.

Just outside the bus, we have lending libraries featuring books specially chosen by Austin Bat Cave, an Austin-based nonprofit that provides children and teenagers with opportunities to develop their creative and expository writing skills.

1720 Barton Springs Road
Austin, TX 78704
512.717.7050
Open daily 11:00 a.m.–7:00 p.m.
