I'm eagerly awaiting spring's arrival and with it some new sun inspired accessories. Of course, I sport my shades all year round, rain or shine; however, I'm always on the lookout for a new pair. Thus, my attention is called to Warby Parker's new Palm Canyon and Spring Collections. Recently celebrating their 4th year, Warby Parker has discovered the perfect marriage between classic and modern. The Wheeler (pictured below on the right, in Black and Windswept) is the perfect example of this.
The Palm Canyon palette draws inspiration from the natural beauty of its namesake, including mesquite, acacia, ironwood, and sand. The unique, brushed design featured in this collection utilized a technique that took over a year to perfect, leaving each pair distinctive and one of a kind. Check out the Duckworth in Painted Desert to see what I mean.
A fresh update with new colors and frame shapes, the Spring Collection offers a number of unisex choices, so you can (once again) borrow from the boys, if you're so inclined. My favorite happens to be a bit more feminine, with a vintage vibe. If you're looking to inject a little color this spring, try some Canton Blue.
Also, if you're in the mood to do some good, Warby Parker is linked with excellent non-profit partners to provide glasses and increase access to vision services with their Buy a pair, Give a pair program.
