Introducing Windsor Spring Collection

Introducing Windsor Spring Collection: a new, limited-edition range of frames with the ultra-distinctive Windsor rim construction that we debuted this past December.

Introducing Windsor Spring Collection: a new, limited-edition range of frames with the ultra-distinctive Windsor rim construction that we debuted this past December. This go-round, we’ve revived the construction with expressive new colors fit for the season ahead.

It all starts with the very best materials: Each pair is crafted from lightweight Japanese titanium, with round lens rims wrapped in premium cellulose acetate coils. These unique coils—reimagined in sprightly new hues like Redbird, Port Blue and Aloe Green—are hand-cut from a single sheet of acetate at a small Italian factory, where the hundred-year-old technique has been perfected.

Henry, a silhouette from our original Windsor Collection, is back alongside two new shapes: oval Ingles and ever-so-slightly oversized Milton. In keeping with the inspiration underpinning our Spring 2016 collection, this trio of frames takes its cues from the levity and energy of the circus along with the about-time freshness of a new season.

Warby Parker x Oxford Exchange

Big news! We opened up shop in Tampa a couple weeks ago inside Oxford Exchange.

Big news! We opened up shop in Tampa a couple weeks ago inside Oxford Exchange.

Converted from an old horse stable by local brother-and-sister duo Blake Casper and Allison Adams, Oxford Exchange is a two-story, century-old space that now houses a well-stocked bookstore and tons of space for work and study, plus a restaurant, two cafés, and a top-notch gift shop—but it was the literary charm of the space that really drew us in.

Baby it’s cold outside… inside, too, if you can’t afford to turn up the heat. Bundle up with literary cuddle buddies to beat the chill, but still chill out.
