Warby Parker, the hipster crown jewel of the online glasses world, has introduced it’s new Windsor Spring Collection well… for Spring. The Windsor line was introduced in December but for the Spring Windsor collection Warby Parker has decided to add some flare to the Windsor line with new and bold colors.
These Windsor wire glasses frames are distinctive among the Warby Parker line as they are not thick rimmed. The material used is lightweight Japanese titanium which are wrapped in premium cellulose acetate coils in fun colors. These unique coils are now come in hues named Redbird, Port Blue and Aloe Green. Classic color options include Tiger Tortoise, Whiskey Tortoise, and Striped Sassafras. These coils around the Windsor frames are hand-cut from a single sheet of acetate at a small Italian factory. Warby Parker claims the hundred-year-old technique has been perfected by this Italian company and not some super hip pompous hipster they hired from Brooklyn. 🙂
The Windsor Spring Collection comes in three different frame styles and options Henry, Ingles, and Mitlon. Henry is from Warby Parker’s original Windsor Collection and retains the same classic shape. The two newer frame designs are the oval Ingles and ever-so-slightly oversized Milton which has a more rounded shape compared to the Ingles and Henry frames.
Warby Parker claims the inspiration comes from “levity and energy of the circus” along with the feeling of the freshness of Spring. Recently Warby Parker introduced the Spring 2016 Collection which featured a lot more bold Spring colors than we have seen in the past from the glasses retailer. OpticalOwl wonders what new colors Warby Parker will add in the future?
