Warby Parker x Architecture for Humanity

April 14, 2014

I am thrilled to be teaming up with Warby Parker again to bring you information about their newest, special edition collection. Warby Parker has partnered with Architecture for Humanity to bring you some really cool frames while continuing to do good. I love that Warby Parker gives us a way to consciously spend our money. (Read more about their mission here)

For over 15 years, Architecture for Humanity has improved the livelihood of individuals and communities around the world through a global network of professionals who provide quality design and management services where these resources may otherwise be overlooked or out of reach. They advise and work with community leaders and architects to make efficient and high-impact improvements that are both thoughtfully designed and sustainable. As a result of Architecture for Humanity’s work and advocacy, tens of thousands of children and individuals in vulnerable communities across the world have safe places to learn, play, and live. 
Warby Parker is helping mark Architecture for Humanity’s 15th anniversary with two collaboration frames, Aslin and Fowler, inspired by an appreciation for streamlined angles and built-to-last materials. As you can imagine, these frames are architecturally interesting (I couldn’t help myself). A portion of each purchase goes to the organization, and as always, for every pair sold, a pair is distributed 
I of course love the Aslin in Oak Barrel with its blue accents. It is classic with a twist which is always my favorite.

 

I definitely wouldn’t mind having the Fowler this summer. They are the perfect casual pair of sunglasses, also classic with a fun twist. I love the blue lenses. It’s an updated aviator.
  • Warby Parker always has very cool, current styles. Plus their try on program is great! Love that they have a conscience as a company 🙂

  • The tortoise frames with the blue accents would be wonderful – I love a good collab, it’s nice to hear about one trying to make a difference.
