Since 1999, Ghostly International has built an amazing community of artists, designers, musicians, innovators, and uncategorizables. With an ethos of endless invention and a belief in the creative possibilities of collaboration, Ghostly has redefined what it means to be a record label and art company in the 21st century. To that end, Ghostly has joined forces with Warby Parker, a pioneering force in the optics industry, to create the Curtis Sunglasses.
Warby Parker is a transformative lifestyle brand with a lofty objective: to offer designer eyewear at a revolutionary price, while leading the way for socially-conscious businesses.
“We recognized in Ghostly a kindred spirit and an inspiration in all things entrepreneurial,” said Neil Blumenthal, Warby Parker co-founder and co-CEO. “It doesn’t hurt that a hefty portion of Ghostly artists wear sharp glasses.”
To cement the their affinity with Ghostly, Warby Parker put their heads together with Sam Valenti IV, founder of Ghostly, and designed the Curtis, a limited production pair of moody sunglasses embodying the Ghostly aesthetic.
“Putting on a fresh pair of sunglasses transforms your mood as fundamentally as putting on a song you love,” Valenti said. “It’s a natural collaboration.”
