It only seems like yesterday when Warby Parker launched its innovative eyewear platform and now the company is marking its fifth year in business and is now practically a household name. To celebrate its fifth year in the business, Warby is releasing a special “Half Decade” collection with some of their favorite and most popular styles wrapped in various shades of blue, their signature color.
The collection will comprise of five (and a half) frames that include the Roosevelt (pictured above), Fillmore, Wiloughby, Huxley, and Nedwin. And they didn’t forget a core piece of their original launch collection, the Colonel Monocle, which is also getting a brand new blue colorway.
Warby Parker has a big case of the blues this season as it starts the year off with a nautical-inspired collection for Spring 2015. Blue, blue, and more blue dominates a variety of frames in all shapes and sizes with a selection of blues in different patterns and hues.
Whether your like your frames big and bold or quiet and subtle, there’s definitely a frame for most any preference. A few highlights include the two-toned, matte Sullivan, the titanium and acetate Brooks, and the vibrant Cass in Blue Slate Fade (above).
The frames start at $ 95 (with prescription) and are available today at WarbyParker.com.
The fourth and final seasonal collection from Warby Parker is now up adding a range of styles and colors for all tastes and sizes. Colorful two-tones make a big statement in their new frames and strong, but subtle styles like the Keene (above) deliver beautiful lines and rich acetate-based hues. For brighter climates, Warby also adds a handful of shades in different shapes and colorways for those of you lucky to enjoy sunnier days this winter.
For their Corner Collection, Warby Parker had some fun with a number of traditional silhouettes and added their own spin with new details and angular lines that adds a fresh new look to their stable of popular optical frames and sunglasses.
Our favorite pieces are the Quentin (above) and Teddy which takes a classic frame shape and switches it up with hard lines, bold acetate colors, keyhole nosebridges, and a stainless steel brow bar.
Warby Parker’s growing optical empire reaches the West Coast tomorrow with the opening of their first free-standing store in Los Angeles on Venice’s famed Abbot Kinney Boulevard.
The shop will feature their full collection of optical frames and sunglasses and an on-site optician will be available to fit and adjust frames. The midcentury-inspired space will also be one of the most noticeable in the neighborhood with a custom façade by artist, Geoff McFetridge.

Warby Parker’s successful business model has made it easy to change up your specs with every new collection or season. Without all the crazy prices that traditional retailers charge you, it’s difficult not to go with the more reasonably priced option and it helps that they’ve got an eye for design and quality.
This season is a little more back to basics while still keeping up with premium materials like the Baxter (above) with its classic good looks and high-tech temples made from strong and lightweight titanium. There’s also more vintage styles and crystal clear frames which you can never go wrong with.
Warby Parker just introduced a new collection of eyewear today. The Waterway Collection features 5 classic models of theirs inspired by shoreline shades. The collection is available starting today over on their website.
