Warby Parker, the eyewear company we told you about that donates a pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair purchased, is venturing into sunglasses for summer, continuing with their vintage-inspired styles along with the appealing $95 price tag. IMG_6672Rev

There are five female frames and five unisex frames in the sun collection and each comes in two to three color options, including a striking tortoise and a cool blue color.

“We have been exploring new color palettes by mixing vintage patterns with modern color treatments, creating rich gray horns, blue smokes and other innovative yet wearable colors for differing personalities and moods,” says Neil Blumenthal, one of the designers and co-founders of the brand. “Each frame is deliberately designed to look great in diverse settings and is meticulously crafted to provide a superior IMG_6654Rev2 fit."

The glasses, which launch in June, come with polarized non-prescription lenses and the company aims to have prescription lenses available by the end of June. Each pair is also equipped with Teflon coated screws that will hopefully help the frames hold up should they take a beating while being worn during a fun-filled summer.

Warby Parker glasses are available at www.warbyparker.com.
