Although we have entered the winter season, there is never a bad time to choose your next pair of sunglasses. Yes, they’re definitely more common in the warmer months of the year, but for us fashion girls, a nice pair of sunglasses stays in the rotation because they’re the icing on the cake of any outfit. . Plus, who knows when you’ll set off on your next tropical getaway, you can never be too prepared.

We’re here to bring you the latest and hottest release from Warby Parker, which also happens to be a collaborative design project with actress Rosario Dawson. In addition to Dawson’s ongoing film career, she is also the co-founder of fashion label Studio 189, a fashion label that produces in Africa and creates African-inspired clothing. Since launching the brand in 2013, Studio 189 has won CFDA awards and honors and continues to produce beautiful designs, so when it comes to style, it’s safe to say Dawson will lead us into the good direction.

Warby Parker’s latest release is actually a limited edition relaunch of their last collaboration with Dawson which sold out instantly, but this time around Studio 189 was brought into the mix and together they introduced two new colors. And apparently, the new styles debuted at Studio 189’s latest fashion show during NYFW.

The ‘Essex’ sunglasses are designed with rounded frames and lightly tinted lenses. The limited-edition version features a mauve colored frame designed with purple gradient lenses and a forest green colored frame with pink gradient lenses. Yet one of the best parts is that Studio 189 adds its cultural touch by designing reversible lens fabric produced in Ghana using a traditional dyeing technique called hand batik. The reverse features a mesmerizing repeat of green triangles that nod to the patterned freedom blankets of the Underground Railroad, and the front is a parade of pinks and purples, inspired by the celebration of Ghanaian masquerades.

Rosario Dawson x Warby Parker is available now at select Warby Parker stores and warbyparker.com.
