What’s Happening: Warby Parker teams up with L.A-based Entireworld to launch a fresh capsule collection of retro, summer-ready shades.
The Download: Both Warby Parker and Entireworld were founded on the premise of bringing style and approachability to homogenous fashion essentials. While the former focuses on sleek, affordable eyewear and the latter emphasizes enrichment through color with its line of monochromatic basics, they both share a dedication to contemporary design and sustainability—two principles that take center stage in this limited-edition drop.
Scott Sternberg, the CFDA Award–winning designer and founder of Entireworld, reimagined Warby Parker’s ’70s-inspired acetate aviator with his signature touch, resulting in four eclectic tones: Blossom Pink, Jade, Midnight, and Oxblood.
To exemplify the collection’s artistry, the brand enlisted four emerging artists—Olamide Ogunade, Tosin Kalejaye, Brooke Fierce Bronner, and Diana Ejaita—to craft a photorealistic artwork for each frame. The prompt was simple yet sweeping: “capture the spirit of summer 2021.” Dressed in Entireworld threads and Hatcher sunglasses, the portraits depict the season’s carefree mood with poppy hues and cheery scenes. To celebrate the partnership, Warby Parker and Entireworld are donating to the Equal Justice Initiative, a non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating mass incarceration and excessive punishment in the U.S.
In Their Own Words: “We’ve been following Scott’s career since his days at Band of Outsiders and are thrilled to be able to collaborate with him at Entireworld,” says Neil Blumenthal, Warby Parker co-founder. “Both of us subscribe to the idea of elevating everyday items with creativity and color and making them accessible—and that’s exactly what he did with our Hatcher frame.”
Surface Says: It was Leonardo da Vinci who said simplicity is sophistication—the Warby Parker x Entireworld collab proves that maxim yet again.
