OWL

OWL started when three friends from Berlin and Hamburg decided to “put their heart and soul into the intricate details of a new era of glasses.” similarly to Warby Parker, these guys make beautiful glasses at a great price point. and if you’re not German you can also have fun counting in probably the only Deutsch you know – as the glasses are named eins, zwei, drei, vier, fünf

Our story begins with the question: Why do we have a hallway full of shoes, but only one pair of glasses? That’s because good-looking glasses are expensive. The right lenses even more so. And cheap glasses look, well cheap. That’s why we asked ourselves the next question: Why does it have to be like that? Our answer: It doesn’t. Welcome OWL.

their website is also beautifully designed thanks to We Are Fellows

These Things No.45

hello!! i’m back from my holiday in the bush which was just THE BEST. will tell you more about that later, but first i have to edit down the hundreds of photos we took. in the meantime i’ve been catching up on the internet today – it’s actually pretty rad going away for a week and  coming back to a completely refreshed feed. here are snippets of stuff that caught my eye, in these things no.45.

i don’t fly very often, but when i do i load up on magazines (something i never actually buy – that’s why the internet exists in my opinion) and the new Céline campaign really caught my eye:
