Warby Parker Fall Frames Are Here!
Warby Parker's pairing colorful facefronts with complementary—and still colorful—temples for a dazzling outcome. The rich, scholarly palette is inspired by leather-bound books at a college library (Baltic Blue, Merlot, Amber Tortoise, etc.). Keep an eye out for two new favorites: Cora, a feminine frame with a slight cat-eye, and the rectangular Becker.
Warby Parker was founded with a rebellious spirit and a lofty objective: to offer designer eyewear at a revolutionary price, while leading the way for socially conscious businesses. Visit the Warby Parker store in Philadelphia Monday-Saturday 11-7pm; Sunday 11-6pm.
