#QUAYXLIZZO CONFIDENCE IS QUAY

We're all looking for something to believe in. A reason to feel good as hell. Introducing a new collaboration with multi-platinum, award-winning singer, rapper, and truth-teller, Lizzo. A juiced-up collection starting at $65 AUD.

To coincide with the launch, we’re teaming up with Lizzo and Feeding America, the largest domestic hunger-relief organization in the country. From 20 – 25th May, customers can buy any pair, get another pair of their choice for free (cuz we love you), and together we’ll help provide at least 100 meals per purchase—up to one million meals. Want to make a larger donation to Feeding America? Click here to donate directly on their site. QUAY X LIZZO for good.

Inspired by Lizzo's bold, unapologetic style and our team of in-house product designers created the new collection with her as our muse—eight feel-good styles, including new takes on some of our fan-favorite sunnies + blue light glasses, plus a sunnies chain that also works as a necklace or bracelet.

We see Lizzo as an icon of confidence, self-love, and self-expression, which is why we tapped her to be the face of our Confidence is Quay campaign. She speaks her truth and, in doing so, empowers all of us to do the same. Confidence. Self-love. Laughter. We see that.

BUY ONE. GET ONE. GIVE ONE.

First + foremost—THANK YOU. Over the past few weeks, we have shifted a portion of our manufacturing efforts to producing certified medical-grade protective goggles + safety glasses for front line healthcare workers. PPE is in short supply globally, and eyewear is what we know best—so this felt like the clear way for us to contribute to the global cause during these unprecedented times.

Community is always Quay for us—so it was important to include + empower you. To distribute as many pairs as possible, we offered a BUY ONE, GET ONE, GIVE ONE program on all of our global Quay sites from April 10th-13th, with each purchase representing an additional eyewear donation. As a result, we are proud to announce a donation of over 30,000 pairs of eyewear to be distributed to front line healthcare workers across the globe, from the US to Australia to Europe. We’re overwhelmed and filled with gratitude by your emphatic support of our effort, and are so grateful for the opportunity to distribute thousands of pairs of goggles + glasses to institutions like:

 

Mount Sinai Health System, New York, NY

NYU Langone Hospital, New York, NY

UCLA Health, Los Angeles, CA

Jefferson Health, Philadelphia, PA

Methodist Hospital, Omaha, NE

Children’s Hospital of Orange County, Orange, CA

HOW THE NEW COLLECTION WAS MADE

Quay was born roadside on the festival circuit, surrounded by artists and attendees who inspired us to create affordable, well-constructed, cool sunnies. So it's only fitting we kick off this new blog series during the launch of this year's lineup. Design Is Quay takes people behind-the-scenes of new collections.

Making the perfect festival 'play'list is an art. Our secret? Quay's in-house product designersthe people behind the statement-making sunnies and buzz worthy blue light glasses everyone will be wearing this festival season.

CREATING THE COLLECTION

The design process starts by identifying key runway trends and deconstructing them for the Quay customer based on what they see on their feed, in stores, and on the streets.

Cyborg Chic is all about structural shapes that shout 'look at me now' while Vintage Oasis features softer, romantic lenses and lines that say something's in the air.

From trend-spotting and color forecasting to making mood boards and sketching, each pair is thoughtfully designed knowing they are an extension of expression that enhance the vibe. Festival looks are edgier, riskierpeople are going there to be seenso our range of styles is a little more extra.

FRAMES FOR EVERY FESTIVAL 'FIT'

Our focus this year was on electric neons, retro rounds, statement shields, and sunset lenses sure to take any festival outfit center stage. You'll be ready to face the music in new styles and extended colorways of fan favorites.

MEET OUR EDUCATION IS QUAY SCHOLARSHIP RECIPIENTS

Back in August, we partnered with Chrissy Teigen to launch our Education is Quay campaign and give ten members of our community the opportunity to win a $10k scholarship to support their educational goals and fuel their dreams. Self-expression is at the core of everything we do, so we wanted to hear how you express yourself. Self-expression doesn’t always mean being the loudest or flashiest, it means embracing every side of yourself—so we challenged you to show us what you’ve got.


And our Quay Squad brought it. From poetry, to songwriting, to coding for a cause—we reviewed thousands of applications from the US, to Australia, to New Zealand. We laughed, we cried, we loved. And we had the privilege of awarding scholarship grants to ten of these exceptional applicants. Check out the video below to get to know some of our incredible winners, and feel all the feels.

 

 Xo,

Quay
