So, my four eyes saga continues... I received a email about the release of these lovelies (new Basso collection) from Warby Parker on Monday and have been mildly, ok a lot obsessed ever since. If you are a regular StoryboardC reader, you will remember these two posts here and here. See, I do love myself some Warby Parker frames and Company. But, the new Basso collection inspired by the Italian sculptural technique Basso Relievo of the 16-17th centuries (pretty cool right?) takes the cake in my book. I love the new elevated "step" design, which translates into two layers laminated together. Creating a more heftier, yet sleek look to the frame. Love. Love. Love. And also adore how they re-interpreted three of their favorite frames with oceanic hues.
Oh, I can't wait to try these beauties on in person especially after reading Warby Parker's 2014 Year in Review (quite the movers and shakers in the last year with some pretty innovative milestones). I was beyond thrilled to see that Warby Parker's Class Trip is parked (a vintage school bus outfitted as a retail store) in my neck of the woods (ATX). How cool is that?!?! So, this design loving girl will be over the moon on Monday for my very own field trip to Warby Parker in person! I promise to post all the details:)
O.K., Now totally curious what you think of the New Basso collection? I hope you have a fabulous Friday and weekend. Love, C.
