We Spy: Lunar Fade

Some people do not see life in just black and white (or clear, for this instance).

To Read: Are You Ready for Wedding Season?

By now, you’ve promised an appearance at a few nuptials (or sent along your best wishes) this summer.

By now, you’ve promised an appearance at a few nuptials (or sent along your best wishes) this summer.

You’ve purchased plane tickets at exorbitant cost and scrambled to find a suitable plus-one.

You’ve steeled yourself to eat dry cake, sign guestbooks, perform toasts and weep with joy (or boredom)!

All of this stuff can really wear a person down.

Don’t worry. We’ve put together a flow chart to prescribe just the right book to get you through wedding season. Start at the top and work your way down for all sorts of literary distraction. (Just remember: no reading on the dance floor.)

Introducing Karlie Kloss x Warby Parker

Did you hear about our kollaboration with Karlie? (You may have read about in the May issue of Vogue.) If no, not to worry: we’ll fill you in.

Did you hear about our kollaboration with Karlie? (You may have read about in the May issue of Vogue.) If no, not to worry: we’ll fill you in. We’ve collaborated with Karlie Kloss on three new sunglasses, available today—literally, like, right now, as of mere moments ago—in stores and online.

Just like Karlie, they’re graceful, polished, and full of personality. We worked hand-in-hand to impart her genuine warmth and go-get-‘em energy to a trio of distinctly feminine classics: Julia, Marple, and Clara. They’re versatile and insanely flattering.

Constructed from ultra-strong and lightweight titanium in Heirloom Silver and Heirloom Gold, the frames feature gradient lenses, available in Violet Clover, Sepia Wash, Faded Slate, Copper Fade, and Indigo Wash. Relaxed and elegant.

In celebration of our partnership, we’re donating to Edible Schoolyard NYC, an organization dear to Karlie. Edible Schoolyard NYC helps NYC public schools to build kitchens and gardens, where, through a hands-on curriculum led by Edible Schoolyard staff, students learn the tools to develop lifelong healthy habits. The donation will benefit two community farm stands in Brooklyn and East Harlem, where kids learn about food preparation in their own neighborhoods. And as always, for every pair sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need.

It’s Company Outing Time

Just because we enjoy our work doesn’t mean we don’t fantasize about sitting beachside with a frozen drink, chatting about the weather as a warm breeze ruffles our Hawaiian shirts. (We do.)

Just because we enjoy our work doesn’t mean we don’t fantasize about sitting beachside with a frozen drink, chatting about the weather as a warm breeze ruffles our Hawaiian shirts. (We do.)

To answer this urge, we held our bi-annual company outing at the Royal Palms Shuffleboard Club in sunny Brooklyn, New York. Although roughly 1,200 miles away from the shores of South Florida, it looked and felt like we had been magically transported to a paradisiacal retirement community: think linen pants, droopy socks with sandals, bucket hats, cabanas, flamingo wallpaper, and shuffleboard-rule bickering.

Company outing 2

The evening started out with classic doo-wop on the sound system and delicious foods from Gorilla Cheese NYC. After a few hours, the black lights came on and our newest Customer Experience Associate (who moonlights as a DJ) beckoned people to the dance floor with hypnotizing beats from Juicy J and Lil Jon. (Just like in middle school, it took 15 girls to start dancing before the first guy “turnt up.”)

Jasper

Couldn’t you just watch this for hours? You shouldn’t, of course, but man, it’s tempting.
Jasper in Marine Slate is just as enthralling when it’s totally still.

We Spy: Pink and Green

What’s summer without sunglasses? (Squinty.) Sunglasses without summer? (Pretentious.)

What’s summer without sunglasses? (Squinty.) Sunglasses without summer? (Pretentious.) But together—what a fine pair they make!

Just like pink and green.
