If you're going to team up with a museum that's been around for over a century, the frames ought to be museum-grade in their own right. Warby Parker and the Cooper Hewitt, Smithsonian Design Museum have joined forces on a new pair of specs born out of their equal respect for design innovation and helping the community.
The frame echoes the styles of the rounded eyewear silhouettes that were popular in the early 1920s. Today, Warby Parker updates that style with the Cooper, a classic design built with modern materials. The frame is constructed from lightweight, Japanese titanium colored in "Heritage Bronze" that's accented with matte tortoise acetate and coiled temples.
