Warby Parker have recruited longtime collaborator Geoff McFetridge for a capsule collection of limited edition sunglasses.

If the multidisciplinary artist's work looks familiar, it's because it has turned up on graphics and logos for Patagonia, Google, and Apple, and in the title sequences of feature films like The Virgin Suicides and Adaptation. The eyewear maker's relationship with McFetridge extends almost to the company's start when he created murals for their first permanent bricks-and-mortar store in Hollywood, California. Artworks were later created for Warby Parker's Seattle, Washington and Venice Beach, California locations.

With this collaboration, McFetridge and Warby Parker have created two styles of sunglasses that are designed to project a laid-back California aesthetic. To commemorate the collection, in addition to its credo of donating a pair to someone in need, Warby Parker will be making a donation to LA-Más, an urban design non-profit organisation based in Los Angeles that helps lower income and underserved communities shape their future through policy and architecture.
