Eyewear-based retailer Warby Parker has partnered with Virginia Beach native Pharrell Williams’ non-profit organization i am OTHER to launch a collaborative collection meant to inspire individuality, innovation and creativity.
Founded by Williams, i am OTHER lends a hand to the groundbreakers and outliers of today to create the next wave of visionaries. And together the Warby Parker x i am OTHER collection seeks to express this effort of forward-thinking and defying expectations through a bold Canary yellow nose-bridge detailed lens. The collection is exclusively available for purchase online.
Per hypebeast.com, “Each pair arrives in a vivid lens cloth feature with i am OTHER’s colorful rendition of camo, with the frame and cloth both neatly tucked into a purple box lined with the same pattern. i am OTHER’s mission statement, 'That which makes you different makes you special. Be other.'”
And in honor of the new collaboration, Warby Parker has furthered their support of individuality through a partnered mission with Williams’ non-profit education foundation, YELLOW. This partnership has created a series of entrepreneurship and creativity workshops, under the ‘Lens of Possibility’ for the change-makers of today—the youth.
