The Warby Parker Class Trip Rolls Into L.A.
Pack a bagged lunch and get your permission slips signed — the Warby Parker Class Trip is driving its yellow school bus into Venice today until March 3 and then onward to West Hollywood March 5-24 as part of the brand’s six-month cross-country road trip. While the brand is normally only available online and at their showrooms, the spectacle of spectacles will house optical eyewear and sunglasses along with a crew of stylists and opticians to get everyone’s peepers properly fitted. Warby Parker is committed to crafting classic eyewear — horn-rimmed hipster glasses aplenty — at prices that hover around a mere hundred bucks. You might end up wanting to hang out in the bus for a while, given that its interiors were inspired by landmark libraries, marbled book linings, mid-century school rooms and a vintage Rolls Royce. You can test-run pairs of glasses by cozying up on leather couches while flipping through their library of beat generation books. Being visually impaired never sounded so enviable.
