Many years ago, I discovered Lula magazine. The honest, pure and feminine style of the mag instantly caught my eye and made me want to know more about Leith Clark, the mastermind behind it. What I like most about Leith’s work is that, no matter the medium, it always stays consistent in terms of concept, style and presentation. So there it is: more than being a fan of Lula, I am a fan of Leith and her dreamy, unique style. And when it comes to Warby Parker, is there anything left to add? A famous, fabulous eyewear brand which teams up with possibly your all-time favorite editor… You can surely see why I was THIS excited when I found out about the Leith Clark x Warby Parker collection.
The style of the collection is pure Leith: carefully curated retro-casual, whimsical, yet playfully modern. There are circular lenses, cat-eye shapes and rimless lenses; Marva, Greta, Aurora, Wednesday, and Willow—available in both optical and sunwear—capture Leith’s singular style in various new colors (Cobalt Leaf, Noir, Aldabra, Daughter of Pearl, and Crystal).
My favorites? I would say the Wednesday or Marva styles. Especially the Marva in cobalt leaf would look fantastic if introduced to a vintage/all-black wardrobe. Also, how can you not love a collection that has the courage to use a dark, raspberry shade for the lenses of the sunwear pairs? The pieces in Leith’s collection look like a refreshing take on the classics – this makes the entire collection so empowering in my eyes!
For every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need. A percentage from each sale will also go to Girl Up, a United Nations Foundation campaign mobilizing American girls to raise awareness and funds for UN programs that provide life-changing opportunities to girls around the world.
Starting December 3, the frames are available online and at Warby Parker stores and showrooms.
