The Shaunie frames, designed by Edvin Thompson of Theophilio, debut in three compelling colorways: Shade, Lemon Slice, and Sorrel. Thompson’s Jamaican roots infuse life into the hues and organic silhouettes, embodying a childhood memoir articulated through color and shape.

The palette of the eyewear draws from Thompson’s nostalgic past, anchoring the oversized frames in a personal narrative while shaping a forward-looking aesthetic. This interplay of design underscores a blend of cherished memories and progressive creativity.

Layered opaque acetate over a crystal shade crafts a familiar and novel outline. This technique creates a tactile and visual depth, with each frame narrating its own chapter of Thompson’s memoir.

“These sunglasses are like a memoir for me,” Thompson shares, infusing the collection with intimacy and aspiration. As if pages from a visual autobiography, the eyewear expresses an evolution—the influence of Thompson’s parents and his adolescence are etched into the material while simultaneously hinting at the trajectory of his design journey.

Warby Parker’s craft in eyewear design provides the perfect canvas for Theophilio’s stylistic signatures—capturing the essence of a designer’s journey, shaded by personal storylines and sculpted for the bold at heart.
