First Tiffany and Co., then Brooks Brothers, and now Warby Parker — fashion is having (another) Twenties moment. While the first two brands launched Jazz Age-themed capsule collections after having collaborated on Baz Luhrmann’s forthcoming remake of The Great Gatsby, Warby Parker launches their 1922 collection today because, hey, it was a good year, and living well is the best revenge.
The concept behind the six-piece line was to translate interwar glamor into “a wearable future.” The three new frames each have a corresponding sunglasses version, produced in custom acetate and stainless steel. And, like all of Warby Parker’s glasses, for every pair sold, the company will distribute another pair to someone in need.
Like the throwback suits from Brooks Brothers and Daisy Buchanan-approved jewelry from Tiffany’s, Porter, Duke, and Joplin (the names of the limited edition frames comprising the line) harken back to that era while looking absolutely modern enough for this one. Are you enough of “a good time kid” (Warby’s own phrasing) to wear glasses intended to match their wearer’s best Tin Pan Alley moves?
