First of all, I recently got my first pair of eyeglasses in three years. And they’re Warby Parkers. And I absolutely love them. It’s taken me forever to find stylish, functional eyeglasses that I feel great in, but I found so many from Warby Parker! And now, I’m super pumped to share with you a first look at the Palm Canyon Collection, which launched today!
I was so excited to collaborate with Warby Parker and show you guys peeks of this collection–it’s perfect! I’m already plotting my next pair of eyeglasses!
We all know Warby Parker‘s glasses fame, but they take things to the next level, releasing new collections and treating glasses as a fashion accessory and not just something you have to wear. This is how glasses should be!
The Palm Canyon Collection takes Warby Parker‘s most famous frames (Winston, Duckworth, Preston, and Wheeler) and pumps a laid back, West Coast vibe into them. What I especially love about this collection is that that each frame features a hand-mixed acetate inset at the end, with patterns inspired by Color Field painters and midcentury minimalists. The attention to detail in these frames are incredible and are something you know you’ll cherish and feel beautiful wearing.
And just when you think Warby Parker couldn’t make the Palm Canyon Collection any more special, it took over a year to perfect the technique required to design and construct the patterns. Each pair has a unique contrast detail created by melding sheets of woodwork-inspired acetate and tortoise acetate together, meaning that no two pairs are the same. Like, how incredible is that?!
Palm Canyon Collection frames are available for $145 online and at Warby Parker showrooms and stores.
And just when you begin thinking of all the outfit possibilities you could create with the Palm Canyon Collection frames, check back tomorrow for a post featuring entirely coordinated outfits to go with the Palm Canyon Collection frames!

This is a collaboration with Warby Parker, but I don’t endorse a product unless I love it!
