Entrepreneur Stirling Barrett founded Krewe sunglasses as a luxury eyewear company in 2013. Krewe sunglasses lead with design and let people’s preferences for chic eyewear drive the rest.

Their unique approach has given Krewe sunglasses a cult-like following among both consumers and influencers.

KREWE SUNGLASSES ARE HOMEGROWN GOODNESS

Instead of putting his savings into a home like all of his buddies were doing, twenty-something Stirling Barrett bought a bunch of glass frames instead and peddled them around town in a cart. People liked what he had, and Krewe sunglasses soon became the next great thing. Barrett founded the Krewe brand which developed into Krewe sunglasses in 2013, intent on growing it in his hometown of New Orleans rather than running it off to fashion centers like New York and L.A. The local following of Krewe sunglasses in Louisiana is enormous, but their popularity has grown beyond Barrett’s home state. Today, Krewe sunglasses are sold along with Krewe prescription frames in a dozen or so freestanding stores and numerous other outlets around the country. Some Krewe sunglasses and prescription frames are also exported, having garnered the attention of fans overseas.

Barrett draws inspiration from the surroundings of New Orleans to create unique and colorful designs for his Krewe sunglasses. New Orleans has a playful sensibility and is a place where people come to express their individuality and free themselves from restraints of social expectations. These are the attitudes that inspire Krewe sunglasses. Many celebrities have been photographed in a pair or two of Krewe sunglasses.

The Krewe company and Krewe sunglasses live in New Orleans because there at home, Barrett is able to help support his community. Having reached revenue targets and positioning Krewe as a philanthropic agent, the company wants to give back to the community through the Krewe Foundation that provides local in-need teens with eye care and eye wear. Barrett’s goal is to provide every high-school student in need with prescription glasses, inspiring them to be better students and see more opportunities for themselves. Through this Krewe Foundation, Stirling aims to foster a greater sense of community within his beloved city.
