The second I received a preview of the Leith Clark collaboration with Warby Parker, I screamed, “Holy Sexy Libraryian, Batman!” You’ll recognize Leith Clark and her unmistakably feminine eye from Harper’s Bazaar U.K. and Italian Vogue, her styling of red carpet stunners, and from the pages of Lula magazine, which she founded.
Be Spectacular. BESPECTACLED!

The collection was inspired by the 1960s, librarians, pearls, brass, opera glasses, violet, nerdy girls. Leith wanted to recreate the glasses you had when you were a kid — or that your dad wore — the kind of glasses that were only relegated to childhood dress-up. Leigh also loves big, thick glasses on little, tiny faces. All five frames (Aurora, Greta, Marva, Wednesday and Willow) have a distinct shape and feature heaps of charm and whimsy.
As if these specimens weren’t cool enough, for every pair of glasses sold, a pair is distributed to someone in need. A percentage from each sale goes to Girl Up, a United Nations Foundation campaign mobilizing American girls to raise awareness and funds for UN programs that provide life-changing opportunities to girls around the world.
Keyholes, circular frames, slight cat-eyes, rimless lenses and more!
