Eyewear brand Warby Parker and electronic music label Ghostly International seem an unusual partnership at first glance, one committed to the eyes while the other to the ears. Yet on closer inspection it’s obvious each company shares an overlapping appreciation for the minimalist modern aesthetic, making their latest collaboration – the Henning – an appreciable fit.
The new Henning is the second collaborative project between Ghostly and Warby Parker, the first being the espionage-chic, Curtis, back in 2013. Their follow up is a little more academic in profile. Made with matte acetate and Japanese titanium and available in both optical or sunwear editions, the glasses ship with a custom lens cloth designed by Ghostly artist Matthew Shlian.
With clear optical lenses, the keyhole bridge and rounded frame fronts outline the eyes and eyebrows; with tinted shades the Henning take on a more intriguing presence.
The Warby Parker x Ghostly International Henning glasses are now available in Jet Black Matte at Warby Parker, starting at $145.
