The Readery by Warby Parker For The Standards

Because reading is Stand D'Amental.
Jun 25 2012 / stan d'arde

Summer is my favorite time of the year. Not only do I get to drink myself silly laying on exotic beaches while wearing as little as legally possible, I also get to bring you the best of what The Standard Hotels have to offer. This summer, it’s The Readery…

The Readery at The Standard, Downtown LA

Alongside Warby Parker, The Standard is presenting The Readery at The Standard, Downtown LA and The Standard, East Village. The curated 1960s inspired kiosk with library tendencies will offer vintage summer reads and the perfect eyewear with which to peruse them.

The Limited Edition Warby Parker X The Standard Sunglasses

As part of this exciting marriage, we’ve created a pair of all new limited-edition sunglasses made especially for The Standard. The frames combine a 1960s inspiration with a dash of contemporary cool featuring Striped Ale, golden ambers, angular lines and Warby Parker’s signature plaque to make you look as modern as I do daily. The added bonus? We are giving everyone who flies StndAIR a complimentary pair just because we can. The glasses retail for $95 and are available at The Readery in LA and in NY and on Shop The Standard.

Great Instagram Pic! Enter our Summer Escape photo contest here for a chance to win amazing prizes.

If you know anything about me, and I know that you do, I can’t kick off a new venture without a party. That’s why this past weekend, I headed out to the rooftop of The Standard, Downtown LA where The Readery recently opened it’s doors and hosted a pool party to end all pool parties!

You might remember that Brit Brit hightailed it to the same rooftop in this short film. (Fast forward to 2:20 for all you impatient types.)

A sample of my own personal Instagram artwork. I know. Genius.

Lastly, because my gifts to you are never ending, make sure to tag #WarbyXStandard on all your Instagram pics and you will be entered to win two nights at The Standard, two pairs of Warby Parkers, and this month’s special bonus prize: two flights on StndAIR. The theme to your photos? Summer Escape! If you’re an Instagrandma and you don’t want to upload any pics, you can still vote for your favorites here, Standard Warby Parker.

Check out The Gallery for all the pool party pics. The Readery at The Standard, East Village opens on June 26th, so don’t miss out.
