Seasons may change and certain trends too. But there is one thing that refuses to change and that is Warby Parker’s extraordinary ability to amaze us each time with frames as gorgeous as they can be. And this time, it is the Thea Collection by Warby Parker that has caught our fancy! And girl! Are these sunnies marvelous! Like a breath of cool and fresh air in a sandstorm (hyperbolic indeed but we are at a loss for words!), the three mesmerizing Thea sunglasses are much-needed in the arsenal of the 21st century fashion goddess. Because being a diva is passé!
The Greek context
When we say ‘goddess-like’ aura, we weren’t bluffing! This collection is inspired by Greek goddess Thea – the Titaness of sight and shine. Thought to be of considerable beauty, she was the one to endow gold, silver and gems with their radiance and intrinsic value. Seeking inspiration from ancient Greek belief that true beauty lies in proportion and balance, this celestial collection is just what you need to be close to your divine self!
The Gold collection
Living up to Goddess Thea’s qualities, these alluring silhouettes are gems for your eyes and perfect to flaunt under the bright blue sky! The sunglasses in this collection are available in Jet Black and Red Canyon – your totally timeless, polished and completely refined companions to brace every weather, every mood!
Presenting the vintage-style frames that honor the goddess within each of us –
A flattering cat-eye frame with an elegant winged cutaway, Grace is your key when you want all the attention to yourself without being too obvious *wink*.
An oversized squared-off frame to give an effortlessly chic vibe, Penrose can liven up even the dullest of days or moments.
With its square silhouette and an angled brow and gold pops, tell us you can resist falling in love with Lovett (we know you can’t!). Time to pop out of the crowd with these lovely adornments!
When the warm weather calls for sunglasses to cool down, seek help from any or all of these jewels! A new frame for each day!
The gems in this collection are designed in-house by Warby Parker. While the entire process usually takes around 12 months, this super stylish line took a bit longer (gateway to heaven doesn’t come easy!). It debuts a very special technique that’s glamorous in just the right places! Each cellulose acetate frame is hand-wrapped in a continuous line of stainless steel, triple-coated in 24-karat gold. Simply legendary. And godly. And marvelous. And exclusive (okay, we’ll stop with our obsession).
The frames in this luxury collection are perfect to let the Goddess in you glide through sun-kissed roads adorned with colorful flowers. Every. Single. Day.
A gold-plated collection so good, your hearts will skip a beat at the sight of these vintage beauties!
A lesson in fit(ness)
If only your quest for finding the perfect shades could end with you falling in love with an adorable pair and then living happily ever after. However, that’s not meant to be. Because with an adorable pair of sunspecs comes the question of perfect fit for your face. So, how do ensure that? For starters, it’s important to keep these simple points in mind:
- Pupils should be near the center of the lens (how else will you admire the scenery?)
- Lenses shouldn’t extend past the side of your face (let’s focus on your eyes only)
- Eyebrows should not be inside the glasses (didn’t you spend a fortune for that perfect shape?)
- When you smile, your cheeks shouldn’t push the frames up (push-ups are meant for your arms, not your eyes)
- Frames shouldn’t slide down your nose (your face is not a garden, and your nose is not a slide)
After all, who likes a malfunction of any kind? Confused whether the golden art pieces from Warby Parker’s Thea Collection will be your perfect pair? It’s time to try these beauties without the hassle of finding a store near you. When indecisiveness is at its peak, Warby Parker’s home try-on program can be your savior! All you have to do is pick 5 of your favorite frames and then decide which one transforms you from a diva to a goddess. Now, isn’t that amazing?
A collection so rich and B-E-A-Utiful, you may be right if you think indulging in this pleasure will bring a lot more than guilt (read lighter pockets). The prices for these 24-karat shades start at $195, a little higher than most of their other works of art. But they look so good and timeless, a little indulgence can do you no harm. After all, you get a promising 30-day ‘no-questions-asked’ return policy and a 1-year scratch- guarantee on the lenses. To make this collection more irresistible, each frame of Thea Collection arrives in a classy, black leather case!
