The latest eyewear line by Warby Parker, Ocean Avenue, landed today and includes eight optical frames and fourteen sunglasses with color combos that will have you itching for a boardwalk immediately. To commemorate the release, the brand collaborated with Cass Bird to create a short film shot in Coney Island. Watch the video below (and click through for the Cut’s exclusive stills in the slideshow) to be transported to the land of the Cylone in the seventies — where people chill in Ocean Avenue glasses while stuffing their faces with cotton candy before taking part in a charged boardwalk dance-off. Doesn’t sound so bad to us.
