On Thursday night, a collection of It girls, designers, and editors gathered at the soon-to-be-opened Lower East Side restaurant Le Turtle in celebration of eyewear brand Warby Parker’s collaboration with socially conscious luxury brand Maiyet. Annabelle Dexter Jones, Misha Nonoo and Lily Kwong were amongst the guests who playfully tried on the collection of sunglasses, which are available in three neutral tones this week on warbyparker.com and maiyet.com. “The collaboration was obvious,” explained Paul van Zyl, Maiyet’s CEO and co-founder. “Both brands share the same vision of improving the world.” For each pair sold, another will be distributed to someone in need. Now that’s a good reason to shop—and celebrate. Here, a look at the intimate party.
