Warby Parker | The Beacon Collection


beacon j


Our Beacon Collection is inspired by impromptu, can’t duplicate-them all-nighters, when having no plans brings endless possibilities. To set the scene, we called on photographer Petra Collins, whose snaps of unsupervised
thrills and sweetly private moments reveal a lot of smarts and humor. Petra joined us one June evening on a detour through downtown Manhattan’s Doyers Street, an elbow shaped alleyway dotted with preserved neighborhood remnants and modern businesses. The collection name is a hat-tip to the morning star, which you can catch just after sunset or just before sunrise, depending on the time of year. We designed our Beacon Collection frames to make a similarly fine companion to late night dates, rooftop sunrises, and everything in between. There’s something just as unexpected about each new frame: they’re repeat contenders, no matter the hour.” ~ Warby Parker

Garrett’s flat browline and subtle keyhole bridge are a fine pair for those with distinct taste.


McKee is an easygoing, round frame that suits medium faces and cheery personalities.


With squared-off lenses and a dipped browline, Ingram is a nice choice for both leisurely pursuits and revelry.


Nancy’s oversized lenses and angled brow detail are right at home in your backyard or abroad.


The Beacon Collection is now  available at www.WarbyParker.com/Beacon and in stores and

Describe your style(i.e what type of clothing are you into, and if you collect any thing, what it is and why ?, where do you get your inspiration from ): Well I’m into olden day things and I like a lot of vintage. I collect shirts mostly because they are very unique and different, I mean you can never find the same shirt or design of a shirt and I love shoes too they are very amazing and there are a lot of shoes that can define an outfit. Um I get my inspiration from Rihanna, Khloe Kardashian, Kylie Jenner, Jaden Smith, Rita Ora, Iggy Azalea, Nicki Minaj, ASAP Rocky and Chris Brown

What do you do for fun, any interesting thing you do on the side: Umm I like to dance and act and I love to cook

Describe your style(i.e what type of clothing are you into, and if you collect any thing, what it is and why ?, where do you get your inspiration from ): I’m into hipster and vintage looks.My style depends on my mood at the moment I get dressed,the occasion then the weather. I love throwing in an unusual piece to an outfit…,just to see what happens. my inspiration comes from people who show variety and can comfortably wear different looks. its basic; don’t wear a boring outfit. I collect vintage jumpers/knits because you can’t go wrong with them and they are easy to pull off (not literally).

What do you do for fun, any interesting thing you do on the side : I’m one of those defined as being “A creative”. I’m an Artist and a Rap enthusiast. in my free time, I work on perfecting my photo-realistic portrait skills. I also write and record Rap music. I appreciate Rap that tells stories with a heavy dose of poetic and lyrical content and I tend to write likewise.

Country: Nigerian

School: Kwame Nkrumah University of Science and Technology, Kumasi, Ghana.

Program: Chemical Engineering.

My style: Through my mother’s eyes “Angel, you dress like an old white woman”. Lol! I love all things Vintage. That’s my style. I really hate to follow the trend cause then, i’d walk on the street and see like ten or more other people dressed like me. And i’d really hate that, in a nice way. I’m not much of a collector but i have a lot of skull printed pieces. You can say i’m a skull collector. (sounds super creepy but yea, that’s me.)

Inspiration: Anything. Anything at all. I could see a butterfly and go “OMG, that’s so beautiful!” and then i get home and say gosh, i wanna look like that butterfly. So yea, i draw my inspiration from anything that excites me. It doesnt even have to be beautiful most times.

Fun stuff: for fun, i love travelling but i don’t even get to travel that much. The irony. Lol!

On the side: Apart from Chemical Engineering, I’m working with my partner on the launch of our clothing line House of Dupv (Dupv is pronounced as Do).

Favourite Quote: I have two. Hay Tiempo Para Todo! (spanish for there is time for everything- Ecclesiates 3:1) and “My tears of pain, I colour them golden so even in pain, i’ll shine.”- Lucy Ukpong.

This is my black light the olympic Tee dress, very chic right ?😉




So I’m wearing a Lace top over a brocade (that is what my mum calls these typa wrappers, lol!🙂 ) wrapper.. This isn’t the conventional way this outfit should look but it’s the 21st century.
