I’m a bit of an old soul: I grew up watching films from the 40s and 50s and marveled over the lady-like silhouettes of the time: full length skirts, polka dot patterns, and tight, cinched waists. When Warby Parker announced their Hayworth Collection (paying homage to the late film star, as well as the cinema of the time), each of the six new frames—three optical, three sunglasses—features vintage touches rendered in their signature custom acetate and premium Japanese titanium. The Hayworth Collection also marks the introduction of two fresh colors: Sugar Maple (richer, darker) and English Oak (lighter, icier), both inspired by woodgrain.
