Must-Have: New Shades from Warby Parker

WarbyParkerMeridian-WhatWouldGwynethDo

I am a big Warby Parker fan and currently wear the Beckett as my daily “I can’t see anything more than two feet away from me” specs.

Not only do I think they put the fun back in frames, their “buy a pair, give a pair” program is a great example of conscious consumerism, and their easy home try-on program is simply genius….I know because I used it a few times when trying to settle on my Becketts. And if waiting a few days on the mailman is still too much hassle for you, they now have virtual try-on, which lets you pick your favorite frames using an uploaded picture and not much else.

So when they came to me to share the news about their new summer sunwear collection, Meridian, I was more than happy to take a look.

The frames are clearly aviator-inspired and since I believe every wardrobe needs a good pair of aviators, these are a welcome addition. The collection, named after the geographical mark that pilots use to determine their longitudinal degree, wants to inspire you to roam, travel and go off-road…the perfect summer manifesto, don’t you think?

Non-prescription styles start at $145 (prescription is also available for those of us who may fall off the road if we can’t see it) and are made from Japanese ion-plated titanium, which sounds pretty darn special, don’t you think? The styles (Exley, Raskin and Flannery) are all named after some of the brand’s favorite writers and are available in jet silver or polished gold. I am a gold aviator gal and my husband prefers a silver style so clearly we will need his and hers.

Available today on WarbyParker.com.

    Am now obsessed with getting WP aviators because of you. Went to the Downtown pop up today. Sadly, they make me look like a bumble bee. But I haven’t given up hope yet – they’re calling me when their old style, now out of stock, is back in. =)
