Warby Parker’s Latest Collaboration Is All About Girl Power

013117-warby-parker-lead
A cap tip to Warby Parker who, per usual, has created the perfect addition to all our eyewear collections: new retro-perfect frames, designed by Amanda de Cadenet. (If you’re not 100 percent sure who that is, keep reading—she’s worth getting to know.) Most noted for her prolific fashion photography work and the warm candor of her celebrity interview web series, “The Conversation” (she’s chatted with everyone from Gwyneth Paltrow to Lady Gaga), Cadenet has built a prolific media career for over two decades without aspiring to design. But that started to change when she was prescribed glasses eight years ago. “I felt super self conscious about it at first,” Cadenet told us over email. “Frames like the ones at Warby Parker—which...

For its latest collection, Berlin-based eyewear label Lunettes Kollektion has joined forces with Antwerp’s most innovative fashion brand Capara to create a line of eyewear that merges high-tech performance with handmade quality. Known for its masterful re-imagination of iconic style, Lunettes Kollektion never disappoints on delivering classics with a twist. This time is no different, with frames that feature a combination of 3D-printed design and artisanal detailing.
