GIVEAWAY: Warby Parker X Ghostly Glasses

Posted by Jakub

We’re excited to be able to giveaway 1 pair of these Warby Parker X Ghostly International sunglasses to the ISO50 readers. All you need to do is list off an album from 2015 that has soundtracked your summer in the comment section below. We’ll pick a winner next Wednesday. Enjoy your weekend!

Ghostly’s latest collaboration with Warby Parker features the beautifully minimal Henning frames. The desire with Henning was to showcase quality, character and resilience without being distracting. Crafted from premium matte acetate, and Japanese titanium the Henning boasts a one-of-a-kind cutout-keyhole bridge and wraparound temples. Each purchase comes with a lens cloth designed by Matthew Shlian, and a Warby Parker carrying case.


– Made from polycarbonate, the most impact-resistant material on the market
Offer 100% UV protection
– Anti-scratch coating and anti-reflective coating included

– Made from cellulose acetate cut from a single sheet to maintain colorparity
Temple arms made of lightweight ion-plated titanium
– Akulon-coated screws for durability


For those of you that are on Spotify there’s a lovely 25 song playlist featuring everyone from J Dilla to The Sea And Cake to Lone, head over here to check it out.
