Exciting new-store news

Last month, we opened new locations: in St. Louis (our first store in town) and in San Francisco (our second spot in a city we know and love).

Last month, we opened new locations: in St. Louis (our first store in town) and in San Francisco (our second spot in a city we know and love).

Our St. Louis store is in Central West End, home to independent galleries and delicious restaurants we’re *very* excited to be in the midst of. St. Louis native William LaChance produced a technicolored original mural for the new store—come inside and get lost in its abstract loveliness.

Union Square is where you’ll find our second store in San Francisco. We face right onto the square (can’t miss us), and we’ve got playful artwork by SF-based illustrator Roman Muradov splashed on our walls.

If you’re in the vicinity of either store, we’d love to show you around. We’ve got locations all over, though! Head here to see them all.

Tuesday treat

New collection coming through! This time, it’s the evolution of mixed materials: rich acetates paired with hints of glimmering metal supported by temples so lean they practically float. We’re calling this beautiful bunch Resort 2017.

The devil is in the details, which we’ve constructed so that the wearer gets maximum benefit. A glinting and elegant metal inlay is visible to onlookers only from certain angles—think of it like a coat with a luxurious for-your-eyes-only lining. This is style so personal it’s almost private. (But not quite. It’ll get people talking.)

The Holiday Gift Guide Is Here

Gifting is hard. That’s why we’ve created a magical place to shop for your loved ones.

Gifting is hard. That’s why we’ve created a magical place to shop for your loved ones. It’s filled with “Whoa, I didn’t know Warby Parker made that?” kind of items. Plus, we threw in some super giftable glasses. Our main goal: Make gifting as enjoyable as possible. Simple as that!

For an extra bit of pizzazz, we called on Swedish artist Andreas Samuelsson to create an illustrative series of quirky characters that bring instant joy to your eyes. You’ll find his minimal yet super-stylized creations sprinkled across our stores, screens, and holiday gifts.

To Read: What fall treat are you ready for?

Indulge in the best of harvest season with some literary favorites. You won’t need a chunky sweater to cover up any hibernation weight, either.

Wintry mix ahead

We discovered our inner geologists when designing our Winter 2017 collection, and the result is a range of frames so stunning we won’t even bother with the rock puns (“these frames are rock stars,” “they’ll rock your world,” etc.).

We discovered our inner geologists when designing our Winter 2017 collection, and the result is a range of frames so stunning we won’t even bother with the rock puns (“these frames are rock stars,” “they’ll rock your world,” etc.). Some are acetate and some are metal, some are brand-new shapes and some are old favorites. All of them elicit oohs and ahhs usually reserved for precious stones.

On the acetate side of things, we’ve developed a slew of custom gem-inspired colorways like Marbled Walnut, Pacific Slate, and Striped Granite (modeled after arfvedsonite, tree agate, and Dalmatian jasper, respectively). Other new colors like Rose Crystal and Jet Black Fade take after more transparent jewels. You’ll find them all on new silhouettes like angular Felix and offbeat Oscar—plus some established stunners like cat-eyed Louise Small and almost flat-browed Lowry.

Then there are the semi-rimless metal frames in the assortment. They range in hue from Rose Gold to Brushed Navy and stud the whole collection with extra gleam. (It’s winter! Erm, almost. Everything should gleam.)
