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.)

Books We Love: “Conversations with Friends” by Sally Rooney

Frances and Bobbi are one-time lovers, now firmly best friends. They go to college together, perform poetry together, debate the function of romance under capitalism together. (As one does.)

Frances and Bobbi are one-time lovers, now firmly best friends. They go to college together, perform poetry together, debate the function of romance under capitalism together. (As one does.) At a poetry reading one evening, they meet a well-known journalist named Melissa, and a sort of convoluted love quadrilateral takes shape with the three and Melissa’s husband.

Writing characters as self-aware as Sally Rooney’s requires serious smarts, and her debut novel, “Conversations with Friends,” sparkles in its elegance, perceptiveness, and humor. The book is filled with Frances and Bobbi’s exchanges on everything from the timely (marital politics, mental health, and so on) to the timeless (intimacy, insecurity, you get the idea). That all sounds potentially insufferable, but Rooney makes both protagonists so deeply likable that curling up with her novel feels—ah ha!—like a good, long conversation with friends.
