Pictorial: Virgil Abloh’s Off-White x Warby Parker Sunglasses
Almost two weeks ago, DM Fashion Book reported that Virgil Abloh‘s Off-White brand is collaborating with eyewear brand Warby Parker (see it here).
Today, a press release was sent out about how the two brands connected on shared fundamental ideals. “Both Off-White and Warby Parker were born from the idea that good products shouldn’t be limited to a small community,” says Neil Blumenthal, Warby Parker co-CEO and co-founder, in a statement. “It only feels natural to collaborate on a frame that’s equal parts accessible and elevated.”
The limited-edition collection will feature three key styles in a range of sizes, all of which are bold and angular. They are appropriately named—Small Sunglasses, Medium Sunglasses, and Large Sunglasses—each of which are Abloh’s take on luxe black sunglasses: classic curves, extra-thick acetate, dark lenses.
“I welcomed the idea of bringing a unique concept to life, one shape extended and compressed to express a different emotion within eyewear,” says Abloh in a statement. “I’m honored to work with such a progressive company like Warby Parker, who was able to help me fully realize my vision.”
The sunglasses are available now online and in Warby Parker stores for $95.
