Waiting For The Warby Bus
There’s always an educational element running through Warby Parker’s DNA. The do-good eyewear brand did its first fashion week presentation (in September 2011) in the New York Public Library, and this summer, the label named after Jack Kerouac characters set up a Warby Parker Readery at the Standard, Downtown L.A. Now, founders Dave Gilboa and Neil Blumenthal have organized a cross-country Warby class trip. The brand’s first metal collection, the new Pencils of Promise collaboration, its Fall offerings, and a few of the originals have all been loaded onto the Warby pop-up shop bus for the grand tour, which kicks off in New York at Bryant Park tomorrow. The goods, with prices starting at $95 and topping off at $195 for Titanium prescription sunwear, will be on sale at the New York stops (Bryant Park, Soho, and the Meatpacking District) before the bus takes off for Boston, Washington, D.C., Philadelphia, Nashville, Atlanta, Dallas, and finally, Los Angeles. Here, Style.com has an exclusive first look at the Warby shop. Don’t miss this bus!
