Last week, Warby Parker introduced its limited-edition Summer Crystals collection. According to the company, the line is “inspired by beach-house nostalgia and all forms of good old-fashioned leisure.” We are coveting the dreamy Preston model in Bellini because its peachy hue adds a flirty, feminine touch. After realizing that it’s been a year since our last Warby Parker post, we decided to stop by their showroom/office to learn more about the new Bellini shade, (as well as to try on some frames, of course).
Having previously shared an office with some of the Warby gang, we’ve been closely following the company’s ascension to cult fave among the bespectacled crowd. And you don’t need 20/20 vision to see why: armed with a mission to provide a pair of glasses to someone in need with every purchase, the company offers a wide selection of fashionable styles and each pair costs less than $100.
We were excited to see the new collection in person, and retail associate Ashley Anderson (pictured above), was nice enough to showcase a pair of Prestons in Bellini for us. Here’s what she has to say about her new fave accessory:
The peach shade is perfect for summer. It reminds me of cocktails, lounging around, reading a book by the pool or on the beach. The translucent color paired with the delicate frame is not too heavy on your face and doesn’t hide your features. They also look great with a tan and sun kissed cheeks!
Since she’s on a tangerine-hued kick, Ashley also gave us some beauty products that compliment her new frames: Nars Laguna bronzer, Philosophy Purity face wash, Essie Cantaloupe nail polish, Dior Show Extase, and Lancome Dreamsicle lipgloss.
Now that you have new shades, check out what’s new in our shop.
