Celeb-favorite eyewear brand announces biggest sale of the year
Everyone from Beyonce to Meghan Markle and Leon Bridges to Adam Driver has been spotted in a pair of Krewe eyewear — and now's your chance to snag some for yourself.
The New Orleans-founded brand, which has a trendy Austin outpost in SoCo, just announced its big holiday sale and the savings are good. Sun, optical, and active styles are all marked down, some up to 70 percent off.
That means you can scoop up select frames for as little as $100, but you have to act fast, because when they're gone, they're gone.
Krewe is also bringing back sold-out and discontinued fan favorites just for the sale, in case you missed out earlier and are still kicking yourself.
Makers of small-batch products, Krewe sources only the finest materials to create its hand-crafted, wearable pieces of everyday luxury. Those exclusive acetate patterns are hand-mixed and hand-fed through a machine like pasta dough, producing long strips that look like cotton spaghetti. Those are then painstakingly arranged, fused, and baked together to create the intricate designs.
The lenses are also shatter-resistant and provide 100 percent UVA and UVB protection, with special anti-scratch and anti-smudge coatings. All quality control checks are performed in-house, with a 100-point inspection system that allows the Krewe crew to examine and polish each pair of frames by hand.
During the sale, you can either stop in at the Austin boutique at 1503 South Congress Ave. — and enjoy a glass of vino while you browse — or order online. If you spend $250 or more you'll even get free two-day shipping. Now, how good would it feel to have your holiday shopping done before Thanksgiving?
