This summer, celebrated eyewear brand Warby Parker has teamed up with The Standard Hotel to present a unique concept stand that offers two vital beach-bumming essentials: books and sunnies. The Readery pop-up unveiled at The Standard, Downtown LA lobby late last month and features a sixties-inspired kiosk that's stocked with vintage summer reads and the enviable eyewear that you'll need to leaf through them.
In addition to nabbing choice specs and retro text from the likes of Jack Kerouac and J.D. Salinger, visitors can also purchase the limited-edition Warby Parker x Standard sunglasses, which include a striped ale acetate, polarized green lenses and orange lens cloth designed by SF-based artist Jeff Canham. Buy the collaborative shades for $95 here and swing by the The Readery now through the fall.
