WarbyParker.com's Luminary Launch

If you have not heard, Warby Parker is quickly making a mark in a very exclusionary market monopolized by a few old boys. They are doing it through an online business as well as continuing to open up stores around the country.

  1. 1.
    a person who inspires or influences others, especially one prominent in a particular sphere.

The Luminary Collection which launched today is a group of 5 styles and the frames themselves are made with titanium in both eyeglasses and sunglasses. The above young woman just might be an icon in the making.

Let's look at some of the iconic wire rims specs that were either put on the map or reinvigorated  by musicians and actors. John Lennon in his iconic frames, Brad Pitt wears an aviator and I think Don Draper is wearing the squared aviator. Don't forget Ozzie Osborne and Elton John with their own iconic styles.

The women in the next grouping are not wearing metal frames but I had to post so you can see just how much of a signature glasses can be.
