Warby Parker for Little Ones

The eyewear brand is tapping into a new market after having so much success since their launch in 2010. For the first time ever, they are unveiling a collection of glasses just for kids. Frames will start at just $95.

“Over the years, we’ve heard from customers on the hunt for smaller — but just as good-looking — options for their kids,” said Warby Parker’s Co-CEO and Co-Founder Dave Gilboa, in a press statement. And starting Tuesday, fans of the brand will be able to purchase mini specs for their tot-sized offspring at any one of its eight New York City stores during a 12-week pilot run.

These playground-friendly glasses are scaled-down versions of longtime favorite frames — Wilkie, Lyle, Louise, Percey, Chamberlain and Daisy — and will be available in an assortment of equally treasured hues — Peony, Jet Black, Eastern Bluebird Fade, Oxford Blue Crystal, Crystal, Oak Barrel and Tea Rose Fade. The smaller-shaped glasses come in two sizes: A junior size for kids aged eight and up and a junior-junior size for littler ones, aged four (peak adorableness) to seven.

Growing up, I still remember my first pair of frames and as hard as I tried to find the most stylish pair, I never won. Functional sure, fashion forward? Not so much. I’ve been a fan of Warby Parker frames since they began so it’s wonderful to hear that now kids can get in on the action.

Marchesa Cancels Upcoming NYFW Show

Absolutely no one is surprised that Marchesa will not be showing at New York Fashion Week next month. With the scandal directly tied to Harvey Weinstein, his wife Georgina Chapman and one half of Marchesa has been noticeably quiet in recent months. She had announced that she would be divorcing Harvey, but many wondered “is that enough?” One one side of the argument, you’re wondering what more she could do after seeking a divorce. However, on the other hand, you have to ask yourself if Georgina really was unaware of everything that went on. It’s not just the sexual assault that she may or may not have known about, but the fact that reports came out that Harvey threatened female celebrities and urged them to wear designs on the red carpet.

Believe me, there’s more that I want to know about this story, but at the same time, I’m tired. It was the straw that broke the camel’s back and now it’s too much. It almost doesn’t help me to know more of the details and to get the questions answered. As many of you know, I adored Marchesa. Since we’ve been posting runway collections to Yow Yow! I’ve featured Marchesa almost every season. I’ve wondered what it might be like to wear one of their gowns for an event or a wedding – anything, and this whole ordeal has been really upsetting, but more upsetting for everyone that had to become a victim of Harvey’s. It’s unclear how Marchesa can even make a comeback after something like this; maybe it’s best if they didn’t.
