Warby Parker's Pop-Up at Nest Is a Spectacle
Until today, Warby Parker eyewear has come to Dallas mostly by way of online sales, as the company has limited showrooms and exclusive pop-up sales. For the next two weeks (through May 28), however, Knox Henderson's beloved Nest will play host to the Warby Parker 2011 collection, kicking things off with a debut event tonight from 6 to 10 p.m.
And this, chic geeks, is outstanding.
Any four-eyes knows that shopping for new glasses isn't just a test of reflection-gazing endurance and frame-to-face flattery, but also a royal pain in the pocketbook (with or without insurance). The WP masterminds have, fortunately, removed much of the stress thanks to their vintage-inspired frames...and lone monocle, let's not forget.
See, unlike most things tagged with the v-word, Warby Parker specs aren't hundreds of dollars. They're all under $100. And that's with prescription, scratch-resistant coated lenses. Yes, under $100. Like, on purpose. According to the line's website, the key to affordable style was taking out ye ol' middle man. But before you headpalm and say, "Why didn't I think of that?!" those fools get even nicer.
