Let’s be real here. At this point, who DOESN’T know about Warby Parker?
The brand that lets you buy a pair of rad specs for a good cause? Sign me up! I remember stopping by their SoHo showroom when I was in New York a few years ago, hoping to finally grab myself something, but for some darn reason, which probably ended up being my strangely shaped and incredibly large head, I wasn’t able to find a good fitting pair. Now, fast forward to a few months ago, on a spontaneous trip down to L.A. I made SURE to stop by. First at the Standard Hotel in DTLA, then again at the Standard in Hollywood. FINALLY! I was able to get myself not one, but TWO pairs of glasses.
Does someone who wears contacts 90% of the time need two pairs of glasses? Probably not.
Enough with my ode to Warby Parker! As of today, WP has launched a new collection dubbed ‘Beacon’, in honor of the slither of time right before a sunset/sunrise. It’s one of those blink and you’ll miss it kind of things. This collection was inspired by amazing memories of rooftop sunrises, all-nighters with amazing music and friends, and everything of the like.
You know those nights. The ones where time just dissipates and becomes less of a reality and the moment and present just takes over. Where everything becomes a blur, hours and hours become a mere state of mind.
The ‘Beacon’ Collection features 6 awesome sunnies and 4 glasses! As most of you guys probably know already, I have a slight obsession with transparent and huge frames.
So the Moonstone would come to no surprise as one of my favorites! Along with Moonstone, I also LOVE LOVE LOVE the Revolver Black and Oak Barrel. These are just some of my picks, but you guys should definitely check out the rest of the collection here!
As I publish this post, I am packing for my trip to New York tonight, and I can’t wait to stop by their showroom to see the new collection!
What do you guys think of the ‘Beacon’? What are your faves?
