When it comes to eyewear, Warby Parker has nestled a very special place in our hearts. Affordable, trendy and charitable, the brand’s frames do a top notch job of keeping our vision sharp and our style even sharper. Case in point: this new collaboration between WP and Ghostly International.
If you’re not yet familiar with Ghostly, the company describes itself as “a multi-platform cultural curator.” What does that actually mean? Well, they kind of do a little bit of everything. They’re a clothing label, design house, art gallery and record label all wrapped up into one. Consider them kind of like the James Franco of the creative world.
The two brands have worked together previously to create the “Curtis” frame. Now they’re back at it with the release of “Henning,” a minimalist pair of glasses crafted from premium matte acetate and Japanese matte titanium. In a post announcing the release of the new frames, Ghostly describes them as, “beautifully minimal frames with a sense of character that’s strong and distinct without being distracting. Our desire with Henning was to showcase quality, character and resilience.”
And that they did — the frames are sleek and simple but have a definite elegance about them. Coming in at $145 (lenses included), they’re also a major steal. Whether you’re reading Jane Austen or staying up late working on your newest mixtape, chances are you’ll look a lot cooler if you’re doing so while wearing these.
