On Tuesday 18th March, New York based eyewear company Warby Parker released their Spectrum Sun Collection. The collection features 9 new pieces, all retailing at $95USD/$120CAD on the Warby Parker website.
One thing I really love about this company, aside from super stylish eyewear, is the do good mantra. For every pair sold, Warby Parker and non-profit partners provide a pair to someone in need. Warby Parker is also one of the only carbon-neutral eyewear brands worldwide, which should definitely appeal to you environmentalists a bit! A do good company providing stylish eyewear at an affordable price.. What more could you want?
The collection features:
DOWNING: in Striped Sassafras
A quirky take on a classic silhouette
DEAN: in English Oak and Striped Olive
A classic go anywhere/wear with anything shape
HALL: in Cherry Blossom and Whiskey Tortoise
A stronger, rectangular shape in a unique pop of colour
MINNIE: in Eucalyptus and Striped Sassafras
An oversized round shape in colours perfect for day to day
PIPER: in Revolver Black and Woodland Tortoise
A classic silhouette meets subtle cat-eye for an everyday bold
My favourite from the collection would either be the Minnie in Striped Sassafras or Piper in Revolver Black. I really love the subtle cat-eye on the Piper and you know I love my black! With the Minnie, it is quite possibly one of my favourite silhouettes in sunglasses in terms of what looks good on my face shape, so this is one I would purchase in every colour!
But honourable mention to the Hall in Cherry Blossom; the pop of colour is too cute not to mention, and the perfect way to add some colour for the transition to Spring/Summer.

I also just wanted to say, I was really fascinated with Warby Parkers Annual Report, which I found in a Forbes article here. From the business student in me, a lot of work was put into this and it shows. A very innovative way to present information that can often be boring and seemingly repetitive, Warby Parker makes it fun and interesting.
