Sometimes you need to pull from the past to create something new. That’s the case for our latest—and first-of-its-kind—frame construction, which blends our favorite (and most intricate) vintage design details with modern techniques devised at our headquarters in New York City. The result is something special.
Combining details from our Windsor rim (lightweight titanium eyewire coupled with premium cellulose acetate coils) with our latest mixed-material frames (think 1950s silhouettes with bold acetate browlines), we developed a series of ultra-distinctive styles that you’ll only find at Warby Parker. Each multi-layered pair is hand-assembled and completely hand-finished by a master craftsman in Fukui, Japan, where high-quality eyewear has been produced for over 100 years.
We applied this complex construction to five new styles and outfitted them in seven new color combinations. Then we rounded out the frames with some top-notch hardware: exposed titanium bridges, barrel hinges, Akulon-coated screws, and adjustable silicon nose pads for an easy, anti-slip fit. Voilà.
