The Ocean Avenue Collection by Warby Parker

4.6.13

As someone who has worn eyeglasses since the age of 5, I'm regularly on the lookout for new arrivals on the specs front.

I'm so excited to share the Ocean Avenue Collection by Warby Parker that has launched today! Warby Parker was launched as an alternative to many overpriced eyewear lines that are available today, circumventing traditional channels and engaging with customers directly through their website. The Warby Parker aesthetic is vintage inspired with a contemporary twist, and every pair of glasses is custom fit with anti reflective, polycarbonate prescription lenses.

This Summer's Ocean Avenue Collection is one for the 'boardwalk truants, amateur spongers and aspiring beach bums,' and each of the 8 optical frames and 14 sunglasses are custom acetate with cool hues such as Sea Glass Blue, Driftwood and Orange Fizz. Warby Parker sought inspiration from the 1979 cult film The Warriors, a picture that charts the interborough rivalry of New York City gangs as they rumble their way to Coney Island over the course of one long night.






So which are my favourites?

The Jasper Sunglasses in Newsprint

The Jules Sunglasses in Marbled Charcoal

The Preston Glasses in Pearled Tortoise

The Preston Glasses in Seaglass Blue

The Roosevelt Glasses in Chocolate Soda

If only I could own them all! 

This new collection is available alongside Warby Parker's other great range of eyeglasses and sunglasses. Warby Parker offers free shipping, home try-ons and returns. 

For every pair of glasses sold, Warby Parker distributes another pair to someone in need. One billion people worldwide lack access to glasses, meaning that 15% of the global population cannot effectively learn or work- Warby Parker is innovatively addressing this issue, and what's better than to give back?
