For connoisseurs of designer sunglasses, Garrett Leight’s surname should ring familiar: his parents, Larry and Cindy, are the founders of the luxury eyewear line Oliver Peoples. In 2010, Leight launched his own Garrett Leight California Optical and proved that a talent for creating smart sunglasses and optical frames runs in his family. Browse through his label’s lookbook to find a versatile range of hand-finished styles, including the rounded-square Rialto shades in classic tortoiseshell, clear Hampton wayfarers, and polarized Speedway aviators (inspired by Hunter S. Thompson, notes the designer). A fan of understatement, Leight keeps his glasses logo-free so as not to draw attention away from the wearer. These are glasses you’ll love to wear season after season.
