The current interest in sartorial flair of the past has hit full steam recently. Warby Parker and their stellar line of eyewear are contributing to the movement with the debut of their 1922 collection. Named after the year that inspired it, the 1922 collection epitomizes American culture in the Roaring Twenties.
It was the year James Joyce published Ulysses, T.S. Eliot published The Wasteland, and Eugene O’Neill won a Pulitzer Prize. It was the year Louis Armstrong moved to Chicago, and the year in which F. Scott Fitzgerald set The Great Gatsby.
The collection’s three frames—the Duke, Porter and Joplin—feature custom acetate and lightweight stainless steel. Porter and Joplin are also available as sunglasses. Available now at Warby Parker for $95 USD. To stay on top of Warby Parker’s latest developments, check out their Twitter and Facebook page.
