VisionVille City Council Meeting
Moderator: Today we vote on Los Feliz boutique Confederacy’s zoning request to erect a kiosk for eyewear label Warby Parker.
Councilman Eyeball: Let’s not be nearsighted. Warby Parker is the new go-to for specs and sunnies. The vintage-inspired collection offers handsome cellulose acetate frames with sturdy hardware (barrel hinges, Teflon screws) and top-notch polycarbonate lenses.
Eyewear Conglomerate Lobbyist: With no industry middlemen, Warby Parker delivers an eye-opening low price ($95). And its charity component (for every pair sold, a pair is donated to someone in need) blindsided us.
CE: The Confederacy outpost is the only L.A. operation. In a cozy back nook (vintage books, campaign photos), pick your pair from the complete men’s and women’s lines. Fork over your prescription, and ten days later your glasses arrive via mail.
M: The eyes have it.
Warby Parker at Confederacy, 4661 Hollywood Boulevard, between North Vermont and Hillhurst Avenues, Los Feliz (323-913-3040 or shopconfederacy.com).
