First Look: Warby Parker’s Hayworth Collection Lookbook

warbyparker

A few weeks ago, the beautiful people of Warby Parker reached out to me to help debut their newest line of eyeglasses and sunglasses. After looking at the wears, how could we say no?

The company, founded by friends Neil Blumenthal, Andrew Hunt, Jeffrey Raider and David Gilboa, was designed out of their desire to “to make the world a better place.” They produce high-end eye accoutrements at real world prices, with part of the revenue donated to non-profit organizations.

 Continuing  in the brand’s vintage taste, the Hayworth Collection is an ode to femme fatales and their cynical heroes of Old Hollywood film noir from the 1940s and 1950s.

Fashioned out of variations of the eyewear couturier’s signature acetate and premium Japanese titanium, the designs marry “noir and Art Deco” that resonate in present-day modernity by way of the “Neville” and “Edgeworth” designs.

The premiere of this assemblage also presents two new colorway options, Sugar Maple and English, influenced by the woodgrain aesthetic in addition to the current Blue Marblewood and Striped Sassafras options.

Every pair of frames sold, one pair will be donated to Warby Parker’s non-profit partners.

I am in love (infatuation to be quite honest) with the Neville sunglasses in Blue Marblewood and the Edgeworth numbers in Striped Sassafras. Definitely need a pair of each for my many *in my Humphrey Bogart voice* voyages into Manhattan’s underground. Hehehe
