When it comes to reviewing fashion, it is pure passion but when it comes to reviewing fashion for a cause it is immense appreciation and pure love. Staying true to such genuine aesthetics, eyewear maestro, Warby Parker, is no stranger to the aforementioned term ‘Fashion with a Purpose.’
With a brilliant mission statement, namely, “We believe that everyone has the right to see,” not only does the brand cater to beautifully crafted frames and impeccable quality at brilliant prices but also partners with non-profit organizations to ensure that for every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need. As a result, Warby Parker has successfully distributed over 500,000 pairs of glasses to those in need.
Working along similar lines, Warby Parker has recently and very successfully collaborated with supermodel Karlie Kloss to launch three stunning sunglasses through which a portion of each sale will benefit an organization dear to Karlie, namely, Edible Schoolyard NYC. Edible Schoolyard NYC provides low-income public schools with kitchens and gardens. Via a curriculum led by Edible Schoolyard staff, students benefit by learning the gears to develop healthy habits. In addition to this and keeping their main motive in mind, for every pair sold, Warby Parker will distribute a pair.
Moving on to the design aspect of the frames, the trio are an ideal depiction of Karlie’s main characteristics of being polished, graceful and full of personality. The brand worked side by side with Karlie to ensure that her welcoming nature and super fun energy is perfectly personified within the designs and craftsmanship of these feminine yet classic sunglasses that will simultaneously prove to be immensely flattering and practical for all face types.
The frames are constructed from ultra-strong and lightweight titanium in Heirloom Silver and Heirloom Gold featuring gradient lenses in shades of Violet Clover, Sepia Wash, Faded Slate, Copper Fade and Indigo Wash.
“Collaborating with Warby Parker on this capsule collection was an amazing experience. I’ve always admired their commitment to social enterprise and am so excited that our partnership is supporting Edible Schoolyard NYC’s inspiring work,” Karlie says while discussing her collection.
Co-CEO and co-founder Neil Blumenthal says, “We’ve been looking forward to working with Karlie, and not just because we’ve been friends for a while. Her enthusiasm, great taste and giving spirit make her a natural collaborator for Warby Parker.”
All in all the Karlie Kloss x Warby Parker frames are immensely practical, classy, on trend, and marvelously flattering providing an effortlessly chic look.
The frames are available June 10 online and in stores at a dazzling price tag of $145 each and a definite buy this season!
