NOT SO PRIVATE EYES: Even the most jaded of fashion show attendees was atwitter with anticipation for the Warby Parker Spring 2012 presentation at New York’s Public Library Wednesday. While not illegal according to a representative of Partners in Spade, a creative agency that teamed with the eyewear company principals Neil Blumenthal and David Gilboa, it was held without permission or knowledge of/by the library. Models sat quietly (fittingly in the Bill Blass reading room) reading from classic books such as “The Great Gatsby” which had been shrouded in blue covers naming the style they were wearing.

The event went off without a hitch, with unwitting security guards assuming the swift gathering to be a college field trip.
