Amanda de Cadenet and Warby Parker have collaborated to create Silvan and Ella, a single frame in optical and sunwear versions (both crafted in cellulose acetate) named after Amanda's twins.
“Amanda’s strength, wit, and eye make her an amazing creative partner; she personifies substance and style. With #girlgaze, she’s bringing more voices into the fold and going above and beyond for the next generation of creatives with typical thoughtfulness,”
—Warby Parker co-founder and co-CEO Neil Blumenthal.
“I’ve worn glasses for a long time and knew that eventually, I wanted to design my own pair that was both affordable and chic. There was no better brand to turn to than Warby Parker; our ethos is so aligned, and they’ve been a dream to work with. I’m proud that our collaboration frames are gender neutral and named after my twins, son Silvan (who chose the pink frames) and daughter Ella (who chose the black frames),”
Ella is an optical frame in Jet Black with bold, gold accents on the frame's temple. Silvan comes in Peony—a nod to #girlgaze's signature pink—in eyeglasses and wth a silver reflective lens in sunglasses.
In celebration of this collaboration a donation will be made by Warby Parker to fund the Girlgaze Grants.
Available January 31. Frames starting at $95.
As always, Warby Parker will distribute a pair of glasses to someone in need for every pair sold.

Creative Jobs for our Girlgaze Photographers
From Amanda's collaboration with Warby Parker, we were able to enact one the Girlgaze initiatives (to get girls jobs) by securing 19 photographers from our community a paid photography gig creating original content to promote the glasses.
