Warby Parker, an online designer eyewear company's story is pretty cool - to offer designer eyewear at a revolutionary price, while leading the way for socially-conscious businesses. I love how they offer a "home try-on" - you can pick 5 pairs and they ship it to you for free, as well as a virtual try-on service.
According to Warby Parker, a good frame is all about the shape.
The Corner Collection gets its name from Warby Parker's seasonal preoccupation with silhouettes and angles. This time around, Warby Parker's experimenting with traditional shapes; think crisp keyhole bridges, sloping brow lines, sharp temples, and straight-edged brow bars in a handsome mix of horn-inspired acetate and stainless steel. Their five new frames—Hutton, Topper, Goodney, Teddy, and Quentin—are totally distinctive and a little bit irreverent.
They didn’t forget color, either. Two new hues, Rhubarb and Quartz, round out an intense palette of autumnal and icy shades, terrific for indoorsy cozy times and leaf-crunching rambles alike. (Even when the temps rise again, they’re still good to go.)
Warby Parker sunglasses start at $95, with free shipping and free returns and for every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need.
