As a spectacle wearer myself, I was pretty ecstatic when Warby Parker approached me to write a post about their latest collection with Leith Clark. After a brief sneak peak at the collection and the photography, I thought it would be such a great piece to feature on my blog and couldn’t say no!
Warby Parker is an American company in which provides boutique design glasses around the global. The company started up as an alternative to the overpriced lens market available today. Warby Parker and Leith Clark have joined forces to create The Leith Collection. You may recognise Leith Clark from her styling in Harper Bazaar UK and the editor chief of biannual magazine Lula.
The Leith collection itself appeals to a quirky yet alternative business like audience, with the use of frames in the collection. A retro style theme is present throughout most pieces with the use of a cat eye frame for the styles WEDNESDAY Noir and WILLOW Aldabra. Along with the use of vintage retro square frames AURORA daughter of Pearl and MARVA cobalt leaf. (Cobalt leaf is my favourite from the collection). All of which are available in optical and sun wear. Click here for links to the eyewear collection and here for the sun wear collection.
I do feel like the style of glasses adopted within the collection has been slightly over used by various other companies within the UK market itself. All though, the major selling point for me with this collection is that: For each pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need. I really love that ethos!
A percentage from each sale of the glasses will also go to Girl Up, a United Nations foundation company in which aims to raise awareness and funds for UN programmes that provide life-changing opportunities to girls around the world. http://www.girlup.org
The collection is now available online and from Warby Parker stores and showrooms.
$145 each / £88.76 GBP
