About the Founder
RAfounder

Drawing on the vivid memories of his worldly travels and his extensive back- ground in the beauty and design industries, Los Angeles- and London-based designer, Sean O’Mara, created Royal Apothic. This collection of expertly- blended Interior Perfumes and hand-poured Luminarie Candles that truly awaken memories and infuse whimsy into everyday life. From childhood days spent in the wonderment of a private Kensington garden to the elegant sophis- tication of high tea, each Royal Apothic fragrance conjures an emotional connection to the past.

O’Mara began his career in the beauty industry, soaring to great heights at companies such as Proctor and Gamble Beauty and Murad Global Skincare. With expertise in the field, O’Mara nurtured brands such as Sebastian, Wella and Trucco Makeup. While working for these industry powerhouses, O’Mara found himself constantly surrounded by the glamour of photo shoots, decadent sets and breathtaking locations. “Directing photo shoots got me thinking,” O’Mara recalls “about translating the glamour and elegance of these big-budget campaigns into everyday space.”

This line of thinking started O’Mara on a second career path. Taking his investment-savvy background and eye for design, he quickly built a reputation for infusing glamour into lackluster properties in the Los Angeles and London markets. Soon O’Mara became the go-to designer when a space was in need of a transformation, and established his properties among the fastest selling in Los Angeles and London.

In early 2006, O’Mara found himself between two very successful, yet seemingly un-related careers. A chance discovery at a Notting Hill bookshop became the link that tied together his worlds. Tucked high on a shelf in the antique stall, the centuries-old apothecary manual sparked an idea that spun into Royal Apothic.
“I wanted to create a product so beautiful, you just have to leave it out on display,” O’Mara says. “And a formula so decadent you just have to use it.” With this goal at the heart of Royal Apothic, the brand establishes itself as the first cosmetic company for the home, providing products of beauty that truly perform.

Introducing the Ghostly Collection by Warby Parker

warby_blog_intro

WARBY PARKER x GHOSTLY INTERNATIONAL

It was only a year ago that Warby Parker announced their collaboration with the ‘endlessly inventive’ music label, Ghostly International. From this dynamic, the “The Curtis” sunglasses were born. A special edition eyewear inspired by Joy Division’s enigmatic front man. The cool and yet mysterious specs quickly sold out in just a few short days, leaving those who anticipated ownership feeling a sense of loss.

BUT, it didn’t end there!

Warby Parker recently announced the return of The Curtis in honor of Ghostly’s 15th anniversary. This time around, they will be releasing four limited edition colors:

Aubergine Fade, Bourbon Tortoise, Moss, and the classic Revolver Black.

First and foremost, let’s all give a nod to the late Ian Curtis of Joy Division.

 The Curtis collection exemplifies true originality with no fear of judgment. It embraces modern culture—music, retro fashion, and social status. It’s no wonder why the collaboration with Ghostly turned out to be a match made in heaven.

Although all the new colors are très cool, there’s something enticing about The Curtis in Moss. Maybe its my underlying obsession over the moderate color, or perhaps it’s the alluring way the model Lewis Valleau looks while modeling the frames on the downloadable wallpaper. So chill, so trendy, the Moss frames remind me of an iconic Brooklyn musician that I’d only one day strive to be.

Smooth lines and discreet angles, The Curtis transforms your personality into a clean-cut mystery. I’d want to get my hands on a pair of these bad boys to simply feel stylin’ and feel good.

The best part about Warby Parker sunglasses and eyeglasses is that frames start at the $95 dollars. Incredibly true, it should almost be illegal.

Not to mention, with every pair sold a pair is distributed to someone in need.

It’s advocacy for a wonderful cause. Feel good, times two.

The Curtis has everyone talking.

Times are changing, and our surrounding cultures are constantly innovating. It’s time to go out with the old and in with the new—so box up those wayfarers and slip on today’s trend. Keep people guessing which artist you are under those killer frames.
