Introducing Amanda de Cadenet x Warby Parker
We’re delighted to share our newest frames in conjunction with creative multi-hyphenate, Amanda de Cadenet. A fashion and portrait photographer, she writes, directs, creates and hosts TV and online shows, and, oh, she runs her own production company too. (She’s busy to say the least.) Her career has many arms, but at the core of her work, Amanda abides by inclusivity and candor. She is zero pretense and all heart, and we couldn’t be more pleased to team up on two new frames in support of her latest venture, #girlgaze. (More in just a sec.)
We’ve collaborated with Amanda to create Silvan and Ella, a single frame in optical and sunwear versions (both crafted in cellulose acetate) named after Amanda’s twins. Ella is an optical frame in Jet Black with bold, gold accents on the frame’s temple. Silvan comes in Peony—a nod to #girlgaze’s signature pink—in eyeglasses and with a silver reflective lens in sunglasses.
Amanda’s #girlgaze organization is dedicated to providing young female-identifying photographers with the tools and support they need to hone their craft. Backed by a who’s-who of female creatives, #girlgaze is a multimedia digital community showcasing the ways in which girls see the world. Their celebration of women in front of and behind the lens is a mission we can definitely get behind. To toast our partnership with Amanda, we are making a donation to the Girlgaze Foundation, which distributes financial grants for emerging female-identifying photographers and directors. The Foundation aims to put more girls behind the camera and close the gender gap.
