Hayworth Collection Eyeglasses

Tuesday, February 12, 2013




Today marks the launch of the new 1940's inspired, limited-edition Hayworth Collection from Warby Parker- makers of beautiful vintage style prescription eyeglasses.






I'm a prescription glasses-wearer myself and although I do adore my original 1950's cat eyes, I find myself not wearing them as often as I should in fear of something tragic happening to them.  I've scoured the internet and local stores for vintage styled modern frames but nothing quite fits what I wanted- until today! I especially love the beautiful color of the Neville style in Blue Marblewood...lovely!


Warby Parker says this about their beautiful new collection:

"....The stretch we had our eye on- Los Angeles in the 1940's and 1950's was a dark and contradictory time in American history. With it's mixture of postwar disillusionment, forward-facing optimism and technological,  progress, there's a lot about that era that reminds us of today. The Hayworth Collection is our way of bringing noir (and Art Deco) design themes into the future...."






The Hayworth Collection includes 3 styles of optical glasses and 3 pairs of sunglasses, suitable for both brooding detectives and femmes fatales alike.

  2. YES!!!! Thank you so much for this. I'm a spectacles gal myself because I just can't do contacts and I was also afraid to get a vintage pair in case something were to happen. I love my LuLu Guiness frames, but these are pretty awesome, too!

  3. So pretty! I too wear glasses but since my hubby doesn't like the shapes of vintage specs, I wear contacts a lot. These are so gorgeous that maybe they'll change his mind!

  4. These are fantastic frames!! They're very similar to the 40s style I got in my prescription sunglasses a year or so ago (very like the pic of Gene Tierney in her sunglasses). I've been wondering if I could pull off the style in daily eyeglasses, but I love 50s frames so much...I don't know if I could make the transition! I keep waffling. lol

    I've been wearing vintage frames for years (before I even wore vintage clothing regularly), so I've long since gotten the worry of ruining them out of my system. But when we travel I -do- always take a backup pair juuust in case. ;)

  5. Those are great frames! It's so nice to see the classic 40's and 50's styles brought back. If you're looking for repro 1950's frames, try Spectacle Eyeworks: http://www.spec-eyeworks.com/pg-bita.html I have 3 frames from them (including Gita) and am just waiting on lenses.

  6. Beautiful, I need to get some new glasses so bad! Mine are barely hanging on. I always love vintage inspired frames too. When I was in college I used to by real vintage frames but since I wear glasses every day, they could not withstand the abuse and it got to be a very expensive habit!

  7. Such fantastic frames! I love the pair I have dearly and am not in the market for another pair, but if I was, these would be serious contenders!
