Warby Parker x 826 is here
Our friends at 826 are pro-imagination, pro-curiosity, and all about the enormous power of reading and writing. We’re fully on board with these things too, and we’re so delighted to continue our ongoing friendship with our newest collaboration with 826NYC and 826LA—and show you what we have up our sleeves.
First, a brand-new pair of frames, Kidd, in the ever-classic Revolver Black. Each limited-edition frame is engraved with an edition number (out of 826 pairs produced) and is available in both optical—in honor of their NYC branch— and sunglasses in honor of their branch in L.A. Kidd’s round lenses and keyhole bridge are a natural fit for bookish activities and goofing off. A little intellectual, a lot of fun.
We’re also sponsoring two original publications showcasing students’ work: The Review from 826NYC features poems, short stories, and essays contributed by their program students, and 826LA’s Activity Book, a digest of prompts and projects for kids (and adults!) to fill in. Warby Parker x 826 Kidd frames are available in our New York City and Los Angeles retail stores and online; the books will be sold separately. Proceeds from book purchases go back to 826.
