The sight impaired should look no further. Warby Parker has opened another pop-up shop inside Alchemy Works, a boutique space located in the Arts District featuring surf and Angeleno-spirited style necessities. Besides carrying local designers and perfectly worn leather goods, the store doubles as a conceptual event and gallery space.
The collaboration comes as a much-needed expansion for the Warby Parker presence in LA, with The Standard Hotels in Hollywood and Downtown offering their own pop-up installments of the brand.
For those unfamiliar, Warby Parker offers vintage-inspired quality frames and sunglasses in the one hundred dollar range. And beyond being more reasonable than the rest, they have paired up with charity organizations like VisionSpring to ensure every pair of glasses bought gives a pair to someone in need (read: sans guilt shopping).
The Alchemy Works location offers the brand’s full collection, and is able to do exchanges and adjustments. You will easily spot the section as a glasshouse overhang specifically designed for the brand hovers over all that is hip eyewear. Notable frames that are worth a mention? For the girls, the Banks sunnies in Sea Smoke Tortoise offer a refreshed take on the marble pattern. For the boys, this may be your chance to experiment with a gradient frame, as they offer the fade in multiple styles.
