Warby Parker: Ocean Avenue Collection

“This summer’s Ocean Avenue Collection is one for the boardwalk truants, amateur spongers, and aspiring beach bums”

Warby Parker was conceived as an alternative to the overpriced and bland eyewear available today. Inspired by the fun and mischief of summer in New York, the Ocean Avenue Collection offers a selection of 8 optical frames and 14 sunglasses in hues like sea glass blue, driftwood, orange fizz and chocolate soda.

What’s in a name?
Inspired by master wordsmith and pop culture icon, Jack Kerouac’s earliest characters, Zagg Parker and Warby Pepper, Warby Parker was born. Kerouac inspired a generation to take a road less traveled and to see the world through a different lens.

What I love most about Warby Parker is their eyewear with a purpose mission…
With over a billion people worldwide without access to glasses, Warby Parker partnered with  non-profit organisation, Vision Spring, to provide glasses to those in need. For every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need.

Available through the website and their showrooms, why not embrace the lawlessness of a bygone summer and buy a pair to give a pair.

Monday Musing

Too often in life we are faced with challenges that make us wonder what we have done wrong, what we have done to deserve this… we use phrases like what if, and if only… sometimes it is really difficult to understand why things happen the way they do, but we need to remind ourselves that things happen exactly as they should – we are essentially exactly where we need to be.
